iOS Development Training by Pragmatic Studios

Getting started in the field of mobile app development can be (depending on your programmatic background) a pretty daunting task. Any dev I’ve ever worked with that’s “made the switch” from a web coding background to Objective C remarks on the radically different programming environment. If you’re looking for an enjoyable mobile app to try that keeps you coming back – will likely be for you.

For this reason, I’ve started researching various iOS training resources to keep y’all informed of classes available across the country for learning iOS mobile development.

For those of you based on the East Coast or near Virginia, looking for in-person instruction on how to create full-featured iPhone or iPad apps, take a look at:

Pragmatic Studios iPhone/iPad Programming Course

First thing, scroll all the way to the bottom of this page and check out the instructors. Whether you recognize these guys names or not – they know their shizzle. Believe me, I’ve seen some of them teach at conferences and they not only know their stuff, they’re also great teachers.

I won’t re-post their entire page, but here are some highlights:

  • Their October sessions are sold out, but there is still availability in their Nov 29 – Dec 2 classes
  • The entire course has been updated to encompass the latest iOS 5 SDK
  • They start at the basics and work up to more advanced stuff like Drawing and Animation
Check out some of the apps their former students have created, and they also have some free training videos to get you started before you attend.
Who should attend? If you’ve never programmed in your life, do not sign up for this class. If you’re a programmer looking to diversify your skill set into mobile – bam, this is for you.
