All-inclusive, 5-day training course on the underpinnings of Mac OS X. Taught by Mark Dalrymple, author of "Core Mac OS X and Unix Programming."

Find your Core Values: Core Mac OS X Bootcamp June 13-17, 2005. Afficionados of the Big Nerd Ranch way will celebrate the latest offering of Core Bootcamp for Mac OS X. The bootcamp offers a richer and more intensive study of Unix programming by examining the underpinnings of the OS X operating system. In five short days, students will review Daemons, Multiprocessing and Multithreading, Rendezvous, FileManager, Performance tools like sampling and CHUD, and networking with Berkley sockets, TCP/IP and UDP. Its section on the debugger is one of the highlights of class, allowing students to fully utilize the debugger in their application development efforts.

Instructor Mark Dalrymple said, "Core Bootcamp delves into the nuts and bolts behind Mac OS X and Unix. Many Unix-based classes will give an overview, but this is an opportunity for students to really understand the conceptual framework through which applications are developed and function on a network. It doesn't get much better than this."

The course textbook, a joint project between Mark Dalrymple and Aaron Hillegass, is Core Mac OS X and Unix Programming. This book has been hailed by critics as one of the fundamental texts available on advanced Mac OS X programming. The course follows the basic outline provided by the book, providing an overview of key elements of programming in this environment, while also addressing potential snafus that might arise during development.

Mark Dalrymple has been a Mac programmer since 1985 and a Unix programmer since 1990. As a Mac developer, Mark contributed to the AOL 3.0 client and served as chief architect of an internal publishing tool for Mac AOL. As a Unix developer, he contributed code and developer documentation to the Galaxy cross-platform toolkit. Currently, Mark co-locates and manages a Linux server and is the author of the BOLTS technical columns at MacEdition.
