FREE DIY Series: Build an iOS App in 3 Hours

Get your feet wet in native iOS app development.  This is a beginner workshop. We'll all build a simple app. And as you go through the process of developing the app, you'll get introduced to the following: 


Underlying concepts for developing iOS apps

Some elementary Objective-C concepts

Tools for development - XCode and the simulator

Using the visual editor ( Interfacebuilder) for designing your app

Connecting your visual design to code

Adding some media to your app - like photographs

Running the app in the simulator

TurnToTech will provide macs but if you have one, please bring along with XCode installed on it so you can take your app home with you. XCode is a free download from the Mac app store.

So if you've never done development and are just curious about what iOS developers actually do - you'll gain some first-hand knowledge of iOS development. And even if you are a developer but with no iOS experience - you'll leave with a decent understanding of iOS development. At the end of the three hour session, everyone should have their own copy of a simple working app!  

The class will be led by Aditya Narayan, TurnToTech's founder.

    I'm learning Pythin, but the workshop launched me into the iOS environment, which is great! Having Macs available was helpful, too.

    Nice brief intro, with a little more fine tuning could get a bit more into the steps to start a project from scratch

      Developing iOS apps requires Xcode which only is available on Mac OS X, though I'll let the organizers say if it'd be useful for other stuff.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
