Lets Build iPhone Apps

2/20/2013 10:00 AM - 9:30 PM

What You’ll Learn

Do you have an idea for an iPhone app? Maybe you have the idea all sketched out, or the dataset ready, but keep procrastinating, or getting stuck?

Come spend an intensive day working on your dream iPhone app idea in the company of an expert iOS app developer.

This one day workshop is designed for you to get closer to shipping an iPhone app you can be proud of.

To make sure you get all the attention you need, it's strictly limited to 3 individuals or teams.

On the day, depending on your level, you will:

- Share your app ideas in a group brainstorming session

- Identify the core features of your app

- Simplify your idea, and create a realistic product roadmap

- Get to work on your app with hands on help whenever you get stuck

- Go home with a scaffold or working prototype with clear next steps so you can be excited about working more on it.

Intermediate Level

You should have some basic programming skills. Ideally you have an awesome app idea that you want to work on, or even better, you have already started to build it. You will also need: - An Intel Macintosh laptop computer - Latest version of XCode and the iPhone SDK installed on your Macintosh laptop - An iPhone or iPod Touch, if you have one (optional)
