Just thought I'd take an informal poll: I've been tracking my time spent on this course fairly meticulously, and I'm finding the assignments quite time consuming. I'm just finishing up # 6, which has turned out to be the most time-consuming of them all: from start to finish (including all planning and setup, time spent reviewing lecture videos and slides, etc), I'm past the 20-hour mark.  Anyone else in a similar boat?  I'm a professional programmer of many years (although new to objective-C and iOS), so I must say I'm pretty impressed with the Stanford kids that (supposedly) bang out one of these a week.

i guess i am not that slow! i am an amateur programmer and usually spend about 10-20hrs per assignment myself. it takes so long most of the time because a lot of apple's framework don't behave the way i expect. it's very frustrating to get it to work right. i am also amaze at how the stanford kids survive this course. it's damn intense.
