hi. Do a search in Finder for Xcode.app ... once you find it, drag it to the dock, so that you can easily click on it whenever you need to...

Also, do a search in finder for Interface Builder.app, and drag that to the dock also...

These are the two applications you need to get started coding...

Click on the Xcode.app icon in the dock to open up your dev. environment...

Stanford University has a free class in iphone app programming:

http://www.stanford.edu/class/cs193p/cgi-bin/index.php

It looks pretty good. I just went through the first lesson and it wasn't hard. The second assignment looks a little harder but am going to try it.

This guide isn't a bad start, and this one gives a good overview of the system.
