Below are the comments from the developers at the last London iPhone Boot Camp, January 29-31:
The camp was simply ... great :) Charles was very,very well prepared, we covered huge amount of topics and the app which we implemented was an excellent example. Time just flew.Thank you very much again for this excellent opportunity - Elvin Ali
Just thought I would give you some feedback after attending the bootcamp. Well after 3 long days all I can say is what a fantastic course. I think we were lucky having Charles as here is someone who not only demonstrated an absolutely fantastic knowledge of the subject he was teaching but was very patient and stayed past 6 each night for as long as was needed to help the students.

“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
The three day intensive workshop from 10am-6pm - a full 24 hours of training - 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 and to date has taught over 200 developers who now have dozens of apps in the app store, from indpendent developer to company training for IBM, AOL, genentech, SRI, Thomson Reuter, AP, theknot.com and more.
Our instructors are all long time iPhone developers and experienced trainers with numerous apps in the app store, such as Stephan Kochan, author ten textbooks on Objective C programing, including the bestseller "Learning Objective C. Programming" and Jeff LaMarche, author of the bestseller "Beginning iPhone Development: Exploring the SDK"
London Trainer: Charles Gamble
Charles Gamble has been a professional software developer for over 13 years, working for many well-known companies using a variety of development languages and operating systems.
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 it's Affordable
Most iPhone workshops cost twice as much. Included in the workshop is 200+ pages course book especially prepared for the workshop by the instructor.
And one more thing - Our Alumni Network for Work/Partnerships/Funding
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.
