I noticed a free PDF eBook by CocoaLab today, Become an Xcoder. It covers everything from variables and control loops, to more advanced topics like pointers and Objective-C memory management. Pretty basic overall, but it seems like a friendly introduction for any Mac user who wants to jump into programming for the first time.
On a related note, Scott Stevenson over at Cocoa Dev Central recently updated the Learn C for Cocoa tutorial. It’s worth a read if you haven’t had a chance to read through K&R, or just need to refresh your memory on C.
