I would agree with the idea of having something like the cocoa tutorials.
Being a mac developer I found those tutorials helpful as a starting off
Enough to get you an idea of what is occurring so exploring makes more
and has a better direction.
I know from learning squeak, that it is in some ways very overwhelming.
With the amount of information in the base image, and code that for lack of
a better phrase likes to yo-yo up and down the object stack, it becomes
when you are exploring something this big.
