Appsterdam Guru Session: iOS for Beginners

Appsterdam Guru Sessions are informal, very hands-on workshops to share a technology or a technique between App Makers. Explanation from your peers, open discussion and practical experience are key to these sessions.

Samuel Goodwin from Roundwall Software and Marga Keuvelaar from Obvious Matter will introduce you to iOS programming in the way programmers learn best: through hands-on practical exercises. By the end of the session, you'll have a grasp of the UI coding, connecting to network resources, and the Xcode IDE... and most important, the skeleton of your first application. Best of all, we'll provide the pizza and beer.


11:00-11:30: Doors open, environment check. 
11:00-12:30: Objective-C exercises (in case you didn't read the tutorial) 
12:30-13:30: Lunch break 
13:30-17:00: iOS training and hands-on exercises! 
17:00-18:30: Pizza and Beer

This session is targeted at developers who haven't yet learned iOS programming, or haven't yet flexed their muscles with it. Prerequisites:
(1) Your Mac with Xcode 5 installed, which can be installed from the App Store.
(2) You will get a LOT more out of this session if you familiarize yourself with the basics of Objective-C. We recommend you run through this tutorial beforehand.

    Good, I liked the hands-on and open approach with lots of opportunity to ask questions about the basics. Obviously there is still a lot to be learned...

      That's a pity Brunasti, Make sure you remove yourself from the list to allow someone else to participate! I am organising more Guru Sessions for beginners in December and January. Stay posted!

    Maybe a good idea to schedule another session like this

    I have reserved a place for me and a guest. Seeming this workshop is turning out to be very popular, I think it's better if I give up my place for somebody else. How can I do this without my guest losing his place?

    Hi everyone, this filled up fast! I've updated the attendee numbers (so that the the organizers don't take "RSVP" slots from the attendees), so the 4 people on the waiting list are now on the "Yes" list.

    If you learn that you can't make it, please be sure to update your status a few days before the session to respect anyone on the waiting list - Saturday morning is usually too late for someone to make travel or babysitting arrangements!
