2012 is the Year of Mobile! And every single person I know has that killer idea for an iPhone/iPad app but maybe not that skills to create it. This easy-to-follow, hands-on seminar will teach how to create full-featured iOS apps from scratch and, at the end of it, you will have the basic knowledge to start building your dream app. You will have learned how to work with Xcode 4 and Instruments and the extensive documentation, but most important, you will know how to continue expanding your knowledge and master the huge array of libraries and APIs in the iOS SDK. What will you learn: - Objective-C or, if you're already a developer, how to use your existing programming skills to master Objective-C - the frameworks, design patterns and tools available as part of the iOS SDK - why memory management wasn't that hard in iOS4 and how Apple made it trivial in iOS5 - user interface design and UX - how to use various iOS libraries for: data persistence (Preferences, SQLite & Core Data), web & location services, motion detection, create and use photos - how to develop an app from the idea through to research, wireframing, prototyping and final product - UX best practices - debug and optimise your apps Who should consider buying this course? - web developers looking to transit to the mobile platforms - all developers (especially those creating apps for the other mobile platforms) - designers - entrepreneurs wanting to expand their skills - anyone dreaming of creating their own iPhone or iPad hit app Prerequisites 1.
