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

please bring a macbook 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 started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
