ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
Whether you're a seasoned engineer or a designer, learn how to build iPhone applications with a new and revolutionary tool called Corona.
Corona is the recently released product of Ansca, a Palo Alto-based mobile software company. Corona is a powerful collaborative mobile development environment that enables designers, engineers, and non-traditional developers to quickly create and share iPhone applications. This revolutionary tool offers rapid prototyping and iteration, reliable development, and faster publishing directly to the App Store. With Corona, you’ll access the full power of the iPhone’s capabilities such as accelerometer, touch, photos, video, and more! Several applications built in Corona are currently available in the App Store. Download Ansca Corona SDK while it's free.
This workshop is tought by Carlos Icaza, co-founder of Ansca, and Marine Leroux, founder of Bamboudesign, a San Francisco-based mobile software design company. Carlos and Marine will teach you how to use Corona and build an iPhone app in minutes! That’s how easy Corona is. You'll be off to build your own iPhone applications quickly and reliably, without ever touching Objective C!
