The Program

iOS

Our 5-week program is immersive; trainees build apps on the very first day. Students learn to create the user interface using Xcode's Interface Builder, and then add logic using the Objective-C programming language. Students will learn how to use Apple's Cocoa Touch frameworks to:

  • display and interact with common UI components
  • display data in tables
  • render web pages, and access web services
  • show live maps
  • take photos
  • use sound and animation
  • create Universal apps that run on both the iPhone & iPad
  • and lots of other cool stuff!

Our trainer is there from start to finish, in and out of class, to make sure you succeed.
