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
This course is a great way to jump start your iPhone app development. Taking this course will save you several weeks of wasted effort while you try to figure out the API and more than pay for itself in your very first project. — Giri Iyengar,CTO-signalpatterns.com
Phone Boot Camp is dedicated to providing the highest quality training possible in iPhone development. We hire only recognized experts in the field with years of experience developing on the Mac - former Apple engineers, creators of bestselling iPhone apps, renown authors of books relating to iPhone development - iPhone and Mac developers that thoroughly know what they are teaching and how best to teach it. A certificate will be awarded upon completion of the course.
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 the leading training workshop for professional iPhone development. We employ top level developer-trainers to teach iPhone development and related iPhone development tools, such as Cocoa, Objective C and Open GL ES. To date we have trained in six cities in two countries over 100 developers who have developed dozens of apps in the app store, from indpendent developer to Fortune 500 companies, including IBM, AOL, genentech, SRI, Thomson Reuter, AP, theknot.com, Crate and Barrel, Shure, HBSC,etc.
The NYC workshop is taught by Ben Sgro. Ben Sgro is programmer and avid hacker. He has released iphone applications to the appstore and has been active as a freelance iphone developer. Hi.s current project is a 2D engine that will power a series of games, with a target release of Q1 2010. He recently was the Teaching Assistant for both Jeff LaMarche (Apress, Beginning iPhone Development) and Steve Kochan (Addison Wesley, Programming in Objective-C 2.0) at the NY Iphone Bootcamp. His background is in C & PHP programming. He has spoken at HOPE (Hackers on Planet Earth), written for PHP|Architect and TechTrax. Ben is currently a tech lead at an iPhone gaming company based in Manhattan New York

What you should bring to the workshop?
- An Intel Macintosh laptop computer.
- XCode and the most recent version of 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 the SDK difficult to master. Books and video are great to prepare for a workshop but there is 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.
