“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.
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-site training 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.

Our trainers are all very experienced iPhone developers and some are also authors of best selling books on the iPhone and Obj-C .
Authors/developers include Jeff LaMarche ("Beginning iPhone Development. Exploring the SDK" – apress ), Stephen Kochan ("Programming Objective- C 2.0" – Addison WesleyPress) Dan Pilone ("Head First iPhone Development- A Learners Guide to Creating Objective- Applications for the iPhone" – O’Reilly Press) Jonathon Manning and Paris Buttfield-Addison ("iPhone and iPad Game Development for Dummies" – Wiley Press) and Matthew Campbell ("How to Make an iPhone App- Mobile App Mastery")
Developers only include trainers Eddie Marks and James Anthony (co-founders Inedible Software, developers of the best selling game "Shotgun"), Ben Sgro (senior software engineer and development manager, Elephant Ventures) , Charles Gamble (founder, Percula Software) and Oz Michaeli (co-founder, Spiralstormgames.com)
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)
- Basic programming knowledge, including object-oriented programming experience, such as Java,, NET, C, Visual Studio
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.
