By Angie Chang (Co-Founder & Editor-in-Chief, Women 2.0) Due to high demand, we're bringing back the great deal for Bess Ho's popular "Learn how to program an iPhone or iPad app" online class -- and we're throwing in another class on building an iPhone game into the deal.

For a limited time only, get both classes for only $124 (regular price $349). Sign up to Learn to Build iPhone & iPad Apps in 4 Weeks with Bess Ho -- This online course includes 60+ lectures, 17 videos, source codes and hands-on exercises for each section. Learn at your own pace and convenience online! Where would we be without the games?

Angry Birds, Cut The Rope, Peggle? Each one is as unique as they come, but they’re tied together to one simple principle: Cocos2d can make them. Cocos2d is the leading, open-source, royalty-free smartphone game engine. It’s easy to use, community-supported, reliable, mature, and over 1500 mobile iOS games have been published using it!

We're throwing in a Cocos2D class in with this deal. Why is Cocos2D so easy to use? Because you can play a sound effect, animate a flipping sprite, flash some rad custom font, all with just a couple lines of simple, pure Objective C code. No knowledge of OpenGL is required! Rotating, mirroring, parallaxing, scaling, tinting, sliding, jumping, and a Halloween-sackful of other effects are quickly at your fingertips.

In his course, Marin Todorov takes a hands-on approach and walks you step-by-step through the process of building a complete game! After building this game, you’ll have all the coding knowledge you need to create the next gaming hit in the App Store!

Marin Todorov's Cocos2D class is in the combo deal with Bess Ho's iPhone app class, but you can purchase Marin's Cocos2D class only for $25 only here (regular price is $99).
