WWDC session recordings

Apple has made recordings of iPhone and Mac development sessions from the WWDC available for its Apple Developer Connection programs, including the free ADC Online and Registered iPhone developers. In previous years Apple has fallen behind in making the sessions available on iTunes after the event. The company has switched gears, making the entire WWDC catalog of session available within a little more than a month -- the fastest Apple has ever managed to do. Some developers believe the real value of the sessions does not come from the lecture, but rather from the question and answer session that ensues.

The videos costs $300 for the individual iPhone or Mac sessions, or $500 for the complete collection of videos (for reference, full WWDC tickets were $1595 each or $1295 for early bird purchases). Tickets to the WWDC have sold out for the past two years, making the videos useful for developers unable to purchase tickets.

To purchase the videos, users must be a free ADC member or a Registered iPhone Developer. The WWDC session videos require iTunes 8.2 and enough disk space for the downloads; The combined package is 30GB. The Mac session package is 13GB and the iPhone session package is 17GB.

    I'd also recommend to people to go to iTunes U and download Stanford's free iPhone programming class. I watched all the lectures and learned quite a bit. However, it doesn't deal with iPhone OS 3.0, just the previous version. So far I've only run across 1 deprecated ivar in my code after moving to the 3.0 SDK
