iPhone / iPad App Development with SDK 6.1

The three day intense hands on boot camp from 9am – 5pm covering the fundamentals and advanced features of iOS development. We will start from the ground up and teach you everything you will need to be able to develop your own iOS application and upload it to the AppStore. Our boot camps are limited in size and feature hands on exercises instructed by TRUE corporate developers. We hire only instructors that have worked with / in large corporations and have produced real applications. We defy the saying, "Those Who Can, Do; Those Who Can't, Teach." Are you ready to learn what real programming is like from our instructors?

We treat you right at our boot camp! Breakfast, lunch, snacks, hot coffee, and cold beverages are provided every day! We have hired catering during this three day intense boot camp!

What do you need to bring?

  • An Intel Macintosh laptop computer
  • Xcode and the iOS SDK 6.1 installed on your laptop
  • An iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch (optional)
  • Basic programming knowledge, including object-oriented programming experience, such as Java, .NET, C, C#, VB
  • Please don’t bring any food or beverages, we are providing catering during this boot camp!


Who should take this boot camp?

  • Experienced programmers interested in iOS application development
  • People new to Mac development and iOS development


Why take this boot camp when there are books, videos, and webinars?
Most people, even those experienced in programming, find the iOS SDK difficult to master. Books and videos are great to prepare for this boot camp but they are no substitute for this hands on workshop with other developers, where you can ask questions to an experienced instructor looking over your shoulder as you go through the lessons step by step. This boot camp will save you months of time and money.
