    About the Trainer

  • Course Duration: 4 Days

    Training Course Contents

    Day 1 is primarily focused on Objective-C and covers everything needed to start building iPhone applications. The day covers basic Objective-C syntax and constructs, use of the Xcode IDE as a development tool, the Foundation framework, building Objective-C classes, properties and methods, debugging using Xcode and GDB, and a thorough explanation of memory management on the iPhone. 

    Day 2 teaches the basics of iPhone application development and then covers the details of views and the iPhone view hierarchy, delegates, Interface Builder, view controllers and architecture techniques to ensure a scalable app, table views, navigation and navigation controllers.

    Day 3 covers custom table cells, resources and image handling, animation, touch, some more advanced Objective-C, an in depth look at the development and deployment process, iTunes connect, the App Store and marketing.

    Day 4 gives students a specification for a simple, but full iPhone application and the task for the day is to build it! All of the concepts needed for this will have been taught by this time but the specifics of how to build the app are available if needed. This is an invaluable opportunity to build a real world application with an experienced developer as mentor.
