Boston Absolute Beginners' iPhone/iPad Boot Camp - Three Day IOS 5.0 Intensive Workshop
Monthly Event - Every 6 months, Second Friday of every month: 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM (EST)
“If you want to develop apps on the iphone you need this intensive workshop. Don't try this on your own, unless you have a couple of months to spare ” —Craeg K Strong - lead developer, Arielpartners.com
The opportunities for iPhone applications developers has never been better. Apple has paid out over 2 billion dollars to developers with App in the iPhone app store. iPhone developers' work-for-hire is the highest paid in the software industry.
iPhone Development for Absolute Beginners is for people who have never programmed before or haven't touched object-oriented programming. The end goal to have the class have a knowledge of the basic of object oriented programming. By the end of the workshop the students and be able to create a very basic iPhone App.
Other more advanced workshops offered are:
Intermediate iPhone Development http://bostonintermediate.eventbrite.com/
The workshop is for experienced that are already familiar with object oriented programming and want to get started with iPhone development. Students who have taken the beginner workshop should be able to follow this workshop
Advanced iPhone Development http://bostonadvanced.eventbrite.com/
For developers comfortable with the basics of iPhone development.Topics would include advanced UI building, CoreData (direct SQLite access is now discouraged), threading, UI animations, basics of Core Graphics, advanced best practices, working with iCloud and Newstand, etc. This workshop is more free form than the other workshops and part workshop, part hackathon. Developers can feel free to bring their app to the workshop for further refinements and work out any problems. Perquisites for the workshop is completion of the intermediate workshop or an app(s) in the iPhone app store.
What you will learn in the Absolute Beginners' workshop:
We start with live coding of the classic simple "Hello World" application to get an overview of the steps and tools involved. You will build your first iPhone Application. Topics include an Introduction to the tools: Mac OS X, Cocoa Touch, XCode, ObjCP rocess: Design in IB, Code in XCode, Build, Debug, Optimize, Building Blocks: Foundation and UIKit Frameworks. Other Frameworks, C LibrariesFoundation Framework: Core Classes, Memory ManagementUIKit Framework: Infrastructure For Implementing Graphical Event Driven Applications,UIKit Framework: Views & Controls, Controllers, UIApplication,Application Basics: Bootstrapping, Delegation, Windows, Views, Build "Hello World" Application, Adding Behavior - Programming and Design Patterns, Objective C Basics: Classes, Message Syntax, Objective C 2.0: Properties, Dot Notation, Design Patterns: Delegation Design Patterns: Target-Action, Design Patterns: Model-View-Controller
The goal of the program is to teach the fundamentals of object-oriented programming in Objective-C with an iPhone development focus. The course is aimed at people with no background in programming, or procedural-only programming experience. By the end of the workshop the student will be ready to write simple iPhone applications and advance to the next level in their development training.
The iPhone Boot Camps are arguably the most affordable and experienced iPhone application development workshops. Our rates are often half the price of other workshops and our trainers the most experienced in the field, with apps in the top ten in the iPhone store and/or authors of popular books on iPhone development.
Since 2008 we have trained over 1,000 developers in over sixty workshops in the United States, Canada, Australia and the UK . The training range from on-sites trainings sessions for Fortune 500 companies such as IBM, General Motors, Bank of America and 3 and 6 day intensive workshops for developers from companies and independent software developers.
We are the only iPhone training to offer advanced workshops and a full money back guarantee after the first day of the workshop if you are not completely satisfied with the training - no questions asked. Keep in mind that if you do not have a basic understanding of Object Oriented Programming (OOP) the workshop will be extremely challenging.
We specialize only in iPhone application development training. No other iPhone workshop has trained as many developers and we've learned a great deal from all our training sessions. Our workshop use proven course materials developed and tested over time and we teach the latest versions of the SDK/Xcode - currently IOS 5.0. The workshops are all small workshops with one-on-one hands on instruction under the supervision of the trainer.
At the conclusion of the workshop we offer an industry recognized certificate and membership in our vast network of iPhone Boot Camp alumni to further advance your career in iPhone development, including job postings from our alumni and other companies. Frequently after the workshops developers follow up their training with the trainers and partner on developing apps and if we have space available in our other workshops we offer you the opportunity to take the workshop over at no additional cost.
Our mission is to train you to develop iPhone apps on your own and most developers are able to so after completing the training. In fact iPhone Boot Camp alumni now have apps in the top ten in the Apple store with millions of downloads.
Boston Instructor: George Polak
George Polak is a developer for Skyhook Wireless, the company that powers over 300 million mobile location requests per day. He is currently leading the development of LocalFaves, an iPhone SDK that aims to quickly add a suite of location-based features to any iPhone application. George has worked in mobile throughout his entire career, including a stint at Research In Motion developing their first public Blackberry API.
What should I bring with me?
- An Intel Macintosh laptop computer
- Latest version of XCode and the iPhone SDK installed on your Macintosh laptop
- An iPhone or iPod Touch, if you have one (optional)
- No prior knowledge computer programming is required
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 still 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.
