Big Nerd Ranch West
Big Nerd Ranch West is the third full-service Ranch, joining facilities in Atlanta and Amsterdam. The new Ranch is located about an hour south of San Jose, in a secluded retreat surrounded by natural beauty. Asilomar Conference Center offers hiking, bicycling and a heated outdoor pool, as well as access to scuba diving, golfing and wine tasting.
Courses at the California facility will initially focus on iOS development, but all Big Nerd Ranch courses will eventually be taught there.
Beginning iOS Bootcamp
The Beginning iOS bootcamp is one of Big Nerd Ranch’s most popular courses and focuses on teaching the beginning programmers to write apps for iPhone and iPad. In seven hands-on days, students will focus on the fundamentals of Objective-C before diving into UI, Core Graphics and Animation, as well as multi-touch event handling.
Tuition for courses includes accommodations, shuttle transportation between San Francisco International Airport or Mineta San Jose International Airport and the facility, all meals and training materials, access to alumni forums, and a completion certificate.
