Stanford University is now offering an entire course (iTunes link) in iPhone development through Apple’s iTunes store, absolutely free. The only cost will be the $99 iPhone Development Program fee (if you aren’t already a registered developer).

Tools and API’s required to build applications for the iPhone platform using the iPhone SDK. User interface designs for mobile devices and unique user interactions using multi-touch technologies. Object oriented design and using model-view-controller pattern, memory management and more…

The course, the first installment of which is available now, is aimed at students who already have a basic familiarity with programming languages like C+ and C++, so if you were hoping to go in blind and come out with a game in the same league as something from ngmoco, you might want to consider heading back to school for that CS degree you always regretted not getting. That said, the course might prove very beneficial if you already have some development experience but haven’t felt brave enough to venture into the realm of Cocoa Touch.
