(Newser) – Stanford University is offering free online lessons to would-be iPhone application developers, reports Ars Technica. The university's computer science department is making materials from its 10-week iPhone Application Programming course available for download from iTunes starting this week, including video lectures by Apple engineers. The materials will be the same as regular students receive, Stanford says—although iTunes U alumni won't be awarded any college credits.
