ClassroomM, a company specializing in training and programming solutions for Mac, iPhone and iPad, announces the addition of online iPhone and iPad training from one of the world’s leading authors and instructors in the field, Stephen Kochan. Divided into three courses and starting with the important basics, the training teaches the aspiring developer how to write iPhone and iPad applications. Featuring more than 28 hours of live instruction, the training is available to everyone and is delivered via live webcasts divided into lectures, two times per week.
“Students can now take advantage of the latest technology to learn in their home or office for a fraction of the cost of a university or training company class. I’ve been delighted by the response from my students, who take my classes from all over the world. I’m looking forward to expanding our offerings over the course of this year,” says Stephen Kochan, CEO and President of ClassroomM.
Kochan is the author of more than 10 books on C, Unix, Mac and iPhone programming, including the Amazon.com bestseller “Programming in Objective-C 2.0.” In his new iPhone and iPad training course, Kochan provides step-by-step instructions using webcasts so that students can participate live or view the recorded lessons in the convenience of their home or office. The online course provides students the time to read the text and try exercises before the next class. If the student misses a webcast, he can always view the recorded webcast, which is available for review up to six months after completing the course.
Unlike other iPhone/iPad training courses, Kochan’s course focuses on teaching Objective-C, the programming language for iPhone and iPad. Most other courses teach iPhone/iPad SDK and tutorial programs directly, without tapping into the depth of Objective-C language fundamentals and Foundation Framework. While many find it easy to follow the sample codes provided in other courses, when it comes to programming one’s own iPhone app, students often find that their shaky Objective-C background makes it hard to implement any customized feature.
Kochan’s iPhone and iPad training course is divided into three parts. Students can register for individual parts based on their experience, or for all three. The first part teaches how to program in Objective-C 2.0. In this part, Kochan, assumes some basic programming background and guides students through live demonstrations on how to write programs in Objective-C.
Using the knowledge from part one, in part two, Kochan teaches the Foundation framework in Objective-C. The Foundation framework defines a base layer of Objective-C classes for working with objects such as numbers, strings, arrays and dictionaries. Understanding the Foundation framework is critical to becoming a successful iPhone developer. In addition, part 2 of the course features an entire lecture devoted to memory management, a critical topic to understand in order to write leak-free applications.
The third and final part of the iPhone and iPad training course is designed for the programmer who knows Objective-C and covers the iPhone SDK. In this part, Kochan teaches how to create basic iPhone/iPad applications
Kochan’s training courses are already being well-received by students:
“I can honestly say the content Steve has put here is well worth the time and energy if you’re dedicated to being successful at this. No other author has put forth so much effort in providing quality content. For that I thank you, Steve.”
“I was blown away. It makes such a huge difference to have someone explain the concepts and answer questions as you go! I now understand everything I read previously.”
The amount of live instruction from a world-leading teacher and author provided in Kochan’s iPhone and iPad training course is an incredible value that shouldn’t be missed. And at only $200 for all three parts, the course is affordable for everybody. For more information or to start leaning how to program iPhone and iPad applications, visit http://ClassroomM.com.
