Welcome to the Mobile Study group. If you have interest in Mobile development, please attend!
We are fortunate to have a guest instructor who will be teaching a six week comprehensive mobile bootcamp (this is week one). The first three weeks will be Java for Android development. The second three weeks will be Objective-C for iOS development. This is a sprint for beginners and will move quickly. To make the most out of this opportunity, it is strongly recommended that you show up to all lessons (although, if you missed one please still free to join) and that you to complete homework to keep up and move forward with the lesson.
You can stick with the normal WWC Mobile meetup format (you won't be alone).
You will pair program with other attendees and build an app! You'll move at your own pace and will be able to get your hands dirty with an app from initial design to full implementation. Mentors will be floating around to answer any and all questions so you can leave with a super cool app!
6:30 - 7:00 Mingle and Dinner
7:00 - 9:00 Pair Programming
What to do beforehand?
iOS: You will need a Mac computer running OSX 10.7 or later, with Xcode 4.5 or later. Please install Xcode from the Mac App Store before you arrive.
