This is just a quick note to let you know that our popular iOS 101 workshop is coming soon to the MacTech 2013 conference.
iOS 101 is day-long workshop that consists of several lectures and live coding demos followed by hands-on labs. It covers the following material:
- A crash course in Objective-C
- Making your first iPhone app
- Using common UIKit controls, such as buttons, sliders, and text fields
- Using the Storyboard editor
- Transitioning between view controllers with segues
- Using Navigation Controllers
- Using table views to display lists of data
- (Time permitting) Saving data to disk
- (Time permitting) Introduction to iPad development
This workshop is a high intensity crash course where you’ll learn a lot, code a lot, and (if you’re lucky) leave with some epic loot at the end! :]
By the end of the workshop, you’ll have developed several iOS apps by yourself, from scratch, that are actually useful! You’ll leave with a firm foundation of iOS skills that you can use to make the most of the rest of the conference.
We have taught this workshop several times through the years at 360iDev and other conferences – each year we update the workshop based on previous feedback and to feature the newest version of iOS. This year, it’s all about iOS 7!
My co-worker Brian Moakley will be teaching the workshop this time. Don’t heckle him too hard! ;]
MacTech 2013 is a 3-day technical conference (plus an extra day of pre-conference workshops including iOS 101) for Apple IT Pros, Enterprise, developers, and programmers organized by the creators of MacTech magazine.
It includes two separate tracks: one focused on programming / development, and the other on IT/Enterprise and consulting. Sessions will focus on both desktop and mobile, as well as OS X and iOS.
You can see the full list of sessions here.
