Atlanta, Ga (PRWEB) August 30, 2012
Big Nerd Ranch today announced that it is bringing its immersive courses in mobile app development to a new Ranch in the Rocky Mountains.
The first course taught at the Denver-based Ranch will be the popular Beginning iOS Bootcamp, held Oct. 27-Nov. 2.
“Yes, you read it correctly, Big Nerd Ranch is opening a permanent Ranch in Denver,” said Aaron Hillegass, Founder and CEO of Big Nerd Ranch. “We are now able to offer students in the U.S. a choice of retreat locations, each within an hour of international airports, to focus on learning how to program.”
“Big Nerd Ranch West will host all the courses we teach at our Atlanta-area Ranch, including Android, Cocoa, Advanced iOS, Advanced Mac OS X and HTML5.”
Big Nerd Ranch West is the third full-service Ranch, joining facilities in Atlanta and Amsterdam. Big Nerd Ranch also hosts commuter courses in the Washington D.C. area and in select cities based on demand.

The new Ranch is located just outside of Denver, in a stunning AAAA-rated resort accessible to the city via light rail. The Inverness Hotel and Conference Center offers a full-service spa and fitness center, 18 holes of championship golf, indoor and outdoor swimming, tennis and five gourmet restaurants.
The setting may be a resort, but Big Nerd Ranch West is all about learning. Nerd instructors will immerse students in development, host after-class Q&As and spend one-on-one time with students to help them understand course materials.
Beginning iOS Bootcamp
The Beginning iOS Bootcamp course is one of the most popular courses at Big Nerd Ranch and focuses on teaching the beginning programmer how to write apps for iPhone and iPad. In seven, hands-on days, students will focus on the fundamentals of Objective-C and Foundation Framework before diving into UI, Core Graphics and Animation, Xcode and multi-touch event handling.
Tuition for the course includes room and board for the week, gourmet meals, training materials and transportation to and from the Denver Airport. Plus, a coveted completion certificate and gifts only Big Nerd Ranch graduates can earn (the ultimate in bragging rights among Nerds). Learn more and sign up at bignerdranch.com/locations/denver.
