“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 independent developer to company training for IBM, AOL, genentech, SRI, Thomson Reuter, AP, theknot.com and more.
Who should attend?
- Experienced programmers interested in iPhone application development
- People new to Mac development and iPhone development
Most iPhone workshops charge double what we charge for our early bird. Included in the workshop is a 200+ pages course book especially prepared for the workshop.
And one more thing - Our alumni Network for Work
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.
