Event Details

“If you want to develop apps on the iphone you need this course. Don't try this on your own, unless you have a couple of months to spare ” —Craeg K Strong - lead developer, Arielpartners.com, attended January 2009 Three Day Intensive iPhone Boot Camp in New York

Why take the 6 day workshop since the 3 workshop is half the cost and teaches you to develop iPhone applications?

The six day class starts with three days of  Objective-C instruction while the the three-day iPhone class assumes familiarity with Objective-C.  There is a review of the language, but that's only for a few hours of the first day.  For deveopers new to the Mac environment with no Objective-C experience only taking the 3 day workshop will be very challenging and may be a waste of your time and money.

The  three and  six day intensive workshop from April 14- 16 or April 11- 16, 10am-6pm -  a full  24 or 48 hours of training - and covers the fundamentals and advanced feature of iPhone development, enough material that after the workshop you should be able to develop your own iPhone application and upload it to the AppStore. The workshop is limited in size and features hands on exercises under the supervision of the instructor.

About the iPhone Boot Camp 
The iPhone Boot camp is dedicated to teaching iPhone development and related iPhone development tools, such as Cocoa, Objective C and Open GL ES. It is arguable the largest and longest running iPhone workshop. It has trainings in over twenty cities in five countries. To date it has trained over 200 developers who now have dozens of apps in the app store, from independent developer to company training for IBM, AOL, genentech, SRI, Thomson Reuter, AP, theknot.com, HSBC, etc.

What should I bring with me? 
An Intel Macintosh laptop computer 
XCode and the iPhone SDK installed on your Macintosh laptop 
An iPhone or iPod Touch, if you have one (optional) 
Basic programming knowledge, including object-oriented programming experience, such as Java,, NET, C, Visual Studio 
Familiarity with the Mac

Who should attend? 
Experienced programmers interested in iPhone application development 
People new to Mac development and iPhone development

Why take a workshop when I can read books, attend a lecture watch videos and webinars? 
Most people, even those with extensive experience in programming, find the SDK difficult to master. Books and video are great to prepare for a workshop but there is sitll no substitute for a small hands on workshop with other developer, where you can ask questions to an experienced instructor looking over your shoulder as you go through the episodes step by step. Basically it saves you month of time and money.

And one more thing - Our Alumni Network for Work 
We don't just offer training. We are also iPhone developers ourselves, as are our alumni. We have an online alumni network where the members post jobs, requests for proposals and form partnerships.
