Small class size – limited to 10 students so that instruction can be tailored for each student.
1) Programming knowledge in at least 1 high level programming language (Objective C, Java, C++ / C / C#, Ruby, PHP, etc). Prior knowledge of Objective C is not required. If you do not have any previous programming knowledge, please inquire with us on training options to learn programming fundamentals.
2) A Mac computer (preferably portable – such as Macbook Pro or Macbook Air) that is running Lion (Mac OS X 10.7) needs to be brought to each class meeting. If you wish to rent a Macbook, please inquire with us before the course starts. During each lecture, there will be hands-on activities that will be performed that are related to the material being presented.
Course Objectives / Goals:
The primary goal of this course is to provide a solid background in both the basics of Objective C and iOS programming. The student shall be equipped with the necessary knowledge to be able to make modifications existing iOS applications as well as to create new iOS applications from scratch. The student will also be familiar with all of the steps that are required to successfully submit an app to Apple’s AppStore.
By the end of the course each student will have developed an original iOS application and/or added nontrivial enhancements to an existing iOS application to the point where it can be submitted to Apple’s AppStore. Details on this will be discussed during the first class.
