Fundamental Computer Science skills; Object-oriented programming basics; Basic experience in a programming language.
We do not provide a computer for the class. Please, make sure to bring your own computer with the latest version of Xcode already installed. You can download the latest version from the Mac AppStore or from the Apple Developer Website.
Our training days are typically eight hours long. Usually from 9am to 6pm with lunch provided. For each topic we are sure to be both informative and interactive. We cover the key concepts first and then complete exercises that engage what we have learned. We strive to make our training relevant and unique. Therefore we tailor each training classes to the needs of the students, creating variety from class to class.

We are passionate about iOS applications and enjoy sharing this passion with others. Our training is designed for developers interested in using the latest technologies to create innovative cutting edge applications that enhance the user experience. All of our training material is written in house and consistently updated. We also offer follow up consulting to all our clients to ensure that the material learned in training is used effectively. Ultimately, our goal is to provide an unparalleled tight knit learning environment that allows our clients to continue to push iOS development further.
