“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, longest running and most reputable iPhone workshop. To date 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.
Montreal Instructor: Ben Sgro
The instructor Ben Sgro is a professional programmer who has released iPhone applications to the appstore, consulted on iPhone development and recently instructed the Miami iPhone Bootcamp.

What should I bring with me?
Who should attend?
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 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.
