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.
