This is Craig Clayton and I am currently working on doing some iOS beginner courses where you can gain the skills to be comfortable using Xcode, Interface Builder, Objective-C, TableView etc. The purpose of this would be to help anyone of any age (preferably teens and older) that are completely new to iOS development. The only requirement would be that you bring a laptop and have at least Xcode 4.3 already installed.
I would like to gauge everyone's interest level in these courses and see how many of you would like to attend or if you know anyone who would like to attend. I also would like to know when you would like them to be held either during the week in the evenings or on the weekend. Please give me your feedback and your suggestions are welcome. Instead of flooding peoples email with unwanted emails please just respond to me directly at my personal email [address removed] or on Twitter @thedevme and I will get back to each of you.
I would like to start these courses in June and they would be free but I will need some help working on a venue and maybe a sponsor or two to offer food and drinks. So any help with this stuff would be wonderful and again please let me know what you think if no one wants to do it thats fine also. As soon as I can nail down date and time for these events I will post them on Meetup for people to sign up for.
