Big Nerd Ranch Announces iPhone Bootcamp for April 20-24, 2009

Just weeks on the heels of its sold-out March iPhone training class, today the Big Nerd Ranch announced another offering of its iPhone Bootcamp for April 20-24, 2009. Big Nerd Ranch, Inc., which has developed a reputation as a premier provider of intensive, high-quality training classes for programmers, web developers and system administrators, sets the standard for iPhone and iPod touch training with iPhone Bootcamp.

"Few technologies have excited the imagination of developers in the way that development for mobile devices has, particularly when it comes to the iPhone," commented iPhone instructor, Joe Conway. "iPhone and iPod touch challenge developers to think in new ways about designing applications, with even greater emphasis on efficient processing, interface usability, and seamless integration with tools like email and geographic positioning."

The class is ideally suited for experienced Cocoa or other developers with a background in object-oriented or C programming who want to diversify their skill set and begin developing applications for iPhone or iPod touch. At the end of five days, students will be fully equipped to begin developing sophisticated iPhone applications with elegant user interfaces. For those needing to brush up on their Objective-C skills, the class begins with a condensed review of Objective-C, the basis for much of iPhone development.

Other topics include:

  •      Drawing and animating graphics with Core Graphics, OpenGL, and Core Animation
  •      Using the Accelerometer and mastering orientation
  •      Integrating databases into applications with SQLite
  •      Leveraging web services as part of the application with NSURL and NSURL Connection
  •      Dealing with multi-touch events and multiple views
  •      Integrating the camera and recording sound

The Big Nerd Ranch incorporates intensive training classes for Unix and Mac OS X programmers in a retreat setting outside Atlanta, GA. Class price of $3850 includes lodging, all meals, original instruction materials, 24-hour lab access, and transportation to and from the Atlanta airport. Students are encouraged to bring independent projects to class, allowing for input from classmates and individual instructor attention. For more information, call (404) 527-6211 or visit
