About the iPhone Boot Camp

The iPhone Boot camp is dedicated to teaching iPhone development and related iPhone development tools, such as Cocoa, Objective C and Open GL ES. It is arguable the largest, longest running and most reputable iPhone workshop. To date it has trainings in over twenty cities and to date has taught over 200 developers who now have dozens of apps in the app store,  from indpendent developer to company training for IBM, AOL, genentech, SRI, Thomson Reuter, AP, and more.


Our instructors are all long time iPhone developers and experienced trainers with numerous apps in the app store, such as Jeff LaMarche, author of "Beginning iPhone Development. Exploring the SDK" and Stephan Kochan, author ten textbooks on Objective C programing, including the bestseller "Learning Objective C. Programming"

What should I bring with me?

  • An Intel Macintosh laptop computer
  • 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.

And it's Affordable and Fun too?

Most iPhone workshops charge double what we charge for our early bird. Included in the workshop are lunches, refreshments and a 200+ pages course book especially prepared for the workshop. And did we mention that we try to find interesting places to have our workshop, not the same old same old sterile meeting room in a hotel. We've held boot camps so far in a beautiful hilltop plantation houses in Austin and at the iPhone Mansion, an old Victorian House, our San Francisco  hq. It use to be the residence of Steve Jobs.
