  • An Intel Macintosh laptop computer.
  • A limited number of MacBook Pro laptop computers will be available for rental at reasonable rental rates.
  • 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 Obj- C 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. Developers find that it saves months of time learning it on your own.
