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 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. The last workshop in Melbourne sold out very quickly so we suggest you not wait too long in registering if you are interested in taking the workshop.
If, before the end of the first day of the course, you are not satisfied and notify the instructor you wish to withdraw, you will receive a full refund of all course fees paid. All training material must remain with the instructor at the time of withdrawal.
The workshops offer a certificate upon completion.
