Objective C

Hello All,

I am working with .NET (VB.NET/C#) technology from last 7 years, but know I am looking some opportunity with IPhone/IPad application development.

So how it will be difficult for me to adopt Objective C as development language and What should be approach. I have time frame of approx 15 days to develop a IPad Application. Any good tutorial for Objective C. I found many tutorials after searching on good, but I need any suggested good one.

Thanks beforehand.

>>So how it will be difficult for me to adopt Objective C as development language and What should be approach.

Easy. Objective-c is a simple language. It's not C++.
I've posted my list of first tutorials. That's exactly what I did in first 3 days.
Don't think that you'll become a guru after these 3-5 tutorials. You will understand something about Objective-C, iOS, iPhone. That's all.  If your application should show few images on the screen, or it is a calculator, or ... something not difficult, not long, you will do it in few days.

Approach?
1. Buy Intel-based Mac running Snow Leopard and iPhone.
2. Download and install iOS SDK.
3. Go through the tutorial list from 1 to 4.
4. Make few own simple programs.
5. Begin with your main goal
