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.
NB: If you want to follow along in these classes, you will need a Mac laptop (OS X 10.8.4 or later).
