Mobile Apps: Getting Started with iOS

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[masked] or later).

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 and has been working in software within the start-up community in Cambridge for the past three years. 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.

    Well designed class. It had just the right amount of information to pique everyone's interest and keep them engaged. Good job Michelle!

      Michelle I missed yesterdays class (I was stuck on i93 for 30 mins!!!) Is there any chance you can you send me the hand-outs/slides for the class?

  • Amy W.

    Great class, Michelle! I just discovered that I can't make the class next week, but I will study the notes and keep practicing with Xcode. Thanks for getting me started! See you around the CIC.

      Hi Amy! Sorry to hear that! I will make sure you get some sort of notes to follow along with. There's also some good resources out there once you know where to start. Thanks for coming!

    Hi Michelle, is it possible to sign up for the class if I can only be present in week 2? I would love to join but just wanted to check and see if class material from week 1 will be sent out via email or somehow made available to students.

    1 · April 15, 2014

    • Michelle

      Hi Mary Ashton, there should be some good notes that cover most of what we are doing tonight. As long as you get a chance to look at those and come to class next week with Xcode installed, I think you would be up to speed just fine!

      April 15, 2014

    • Mary Ashton I.

      Oh, great! Thanks so much for the quick responses. I've got Xcode installed and will definitely be at week 2 - perhaps even there tonight if I can swing schedule changes!

    As a general note:
    You will get the most of out class if you can bring a Mac that has OS X[masked] or higher because this is what the latest version of XCode requires. XCode is the computer software we will use to create iOS Apps and it is available in your Mac App Store. If you get a chance, you might want to download it before class.

    Hi Jen!
    The initial class has some more general (non-coding) explanations about different types of mobile apps and ends with a very simple "Hello World" example. The second evening we will dive into a slightly more complicated app. We will create an actual sample app by the end, but the goal is to keep it simple enough that people of all levels with get something out of class!
    Hope this info helps!

    Hi, will we create an actual sample app by the end of the class? It's not clear to me what to expect from this class. Thank you! Jen
