Mobile Apps: Get Started with iOS (2-class series)



Depending on the nature of your start-up, a mobile app can make or break the enterprise. App development can feel like a whole other world and lack of information often poses a barrier to entry for many young companies. In this 2-class series, Michelle Darby will give you the scoop on what goes into developing apps for Apple products, from the technologies involved to optimizing workflow. You'll get set up with Xcode (free download) and learn how to use it through a hands-on example app.

Michelle Darby is Co-Founder and President of Roomzilla, a company whose software is used at the Cambridge Innovation Center. She has an Electrical Engineering degree from the University of Washington, but has been working mostly in software for the past two years within the start-up community in Cambridge. Michelle has development experience with both Android and Apple mobile apps. Outside of engineering, her main passion throughout college and now is rowing/coxing. After college, Michelle has kept in touch with the sport through coaching at her high school.

    I wish I could make this class but I have a trip to Florida on tap. Any idea when you might run it again or perhaps an Android one? Thanks as always!

      Hi Barb, timing will depend on Michelle's schedule, but there's definitely interest in Android session. Maybe sometime this summer? Sorry we won't see you this evening, but have a good trip! =)

    It was fantastic. Definitely write the organizers and ask if you need to download anything before the first class. It'll speed things up and ensure you show up with the *right* device/programs ready to go.

    Hi Nicole, what kinds of prerequisite does this course require?

    • Michelle

      Hi Qiong, Some coding exposure will make it easier to pick up the coding portion of this class, but its certainly not necessary. And you can always ask questions!

    Was really looking forward to this but life has other plans for me apparently. So bummed to have to drop out due to a work emergency. :( Glad to know someone else will get in off the wait list anyway.

      That stinks, Lucy! Thanks for letting us know in advance though.
