About the iPhone Boot Camp

The iPhone Boot camp is the leading training workshop for professional iPhone development. We employ top level developer-trainers to teach iPhone development and related iPhone development tools, such as Cocoa, Objective C and Open GL ES.  To date we have trained in six cities in two countries over 100 developers who have developed dozens of apps in the app store, from indpendent developer to Fortune 500 companies, including IBM, AOL, genentech, SRI, Thomson Reuter, AP,, Crate and Barrel, Shure, HBSC,etc.

What should I bring with me?

  • An Intel Macintosh laptop computer.
  • A limited number of MacBook Pro laptop computers will be available for rental at reasonable rental rates.
  • XCode and the iPhone SDK installed on your Macintosh laptop 
  • An iPhone or iPod Touch, if you have one (optional) 
  • Basic programming knowledge, including object-oriented programming experience, such as Java,, NET, C,  Visual Studio
  • Familiarity with the Mac

Who should attend?

  • Experienced programmers interested in iPhone application development
  • People new to Mac development and iPhone development

Why take a workshop when I can read books, attend a lecture watch videos and webinars?

Most people, even those with extensive experience in programming, find the SDK difficult to master. Books and video are great to prepare for a workshop but there  is sitll no substitute for a small hands on workshop with other developer, where you can ask questions to an experienced instructor looking over your shoulder as you go through the episodes step by step. Basically it saves you month of time and money.
