Ever since Apple’s iOS mobile operating system was opened up to third party developers in 2008, there’s been a huge influx of successful independent apps available in the App Store. But it’s not just programmers and computer experts putting out apps — anyone with a good idea, knowledge of Objective C, and the right development tools can become a successful iOS developer. In this class, you’ll learn what the right development tools are, how to use them, and get started with the Objective C programming language. By the time you leave, you’ll have gone through a full app development life cycle from concept to implementation.
This class will have a focus on Scopely; a next generation consumer mobile entertainment network that works with the top independent studios to co-develop multi-player games that leverage its network for technology, distribution and monetization – leveling the playing field for mobile games and allowing the smallest mobile developer to compete with global gaming giants. Games in the Scopely network launched so far have drawn millions of users, with organic growth and high engagement levels.
