In this instructor-led, hands-on workshop, attendees will learn how to create games for iOS (iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch) and Android operating systems using the Corona SDK. This is a code intensive workshop. You will be taken through the entire process of developing a mobile game while examining best practices of writing code. We will place a strong emphasis on making programming accessible for all students and by the end of the workshop, every attendee will have created a complete mobile game. That's the promise.

Why take this workshop when I can read tutorials and watch videos?
Online tutorials and video are great to prepare yourself but there is still no substitute for a small hands-on workshop with other developers. Through our workshop, you'll be able to get your questions answered by an experienced instructor looking over your shoulder as you go through the lessons step-by-step.
How many students are enrolled in each workshop?
Workshops are kept small to ensure that each attendee gets plenty of time and attention to get their questions answered. You can expect 8-10 attendees in each workshop.
