The Research Park is pleased to announce the second introductory class to iOS mobile development. We had great response to our first class last Spring, and based upon input from the instructor and participants, we’ve kept the best and made adjustments to make it even better.
As before, this offering will be an eight-week, Wednesday-night, class, meeting from 6:00-8:00pm, with light dinner provided. Classes will begin on Wednesday, October 3, and run through the end of November. The class will include an introduction to the Xcode 4 environment, Objective C, and application development for iOS devices. The Fall class will be a mixture of lecture and hands-on labs to reinforce learning. Unlike the first class, we will not be working on projects for outside departments or companies, but we will work on developing sample apps for purely pedagogical value. We are happy to announce that our instructor will once again be Mike Haberman, a University employee with years of professional iOS development experience, assisted by our MBA/IT intern at EnterpriseWorks, LJ Wong, who, among other applications for iOS, developed the recently released Research Park app for iOS. The cost of the eight-week class will be $150.
Once again, enrollment will be limited to enhance the learning experience, and we expect to have a lot of applicants for this class, so anyone interested should apply on-line at http://go.illinois.edu/iosclass, by the end of October 1. Because the goal of this class is workforce development, we will give highest priority to those interested in working in the mobile application space as an entrepreneur or an employee of a company developing mobile applications. We strongly suggest applicants have some programming experience, with object oriented programming experience being particularly valuable.
