Chicago, IL (PRWEB) June 29, 2014
Aspiring mobile app developers at Mobile Makers Academy will be among the first to learn how to make apps for the iPhone and iPad using Apple’s new programming language, Swift. Starting July 21, Mobile Makers, an 8-week, full-time iOS bootcamp, will integrate Swift into its curriculum.
App developers will discover advantages that make coding easier using Swift. Developers can now build apps more quickly with fewer bugs because Swift simplifies the coding syntax. Swift also enables developers to experiment and edit lines of codes in an interactive environment.
Although Swift is a significant update for Apple developers, Mobile Makers will teach Apple’s new coding language as well as Objective-C to its students.
“The introduction of Swift doesn’t immediately diminish the importance of Objective-C,” said Brandon Passley, founder and CEO of Mobile Makers. “Objective-C is still the underlying programming language for more than a million apps. Development shops and their staff will need to have an expertise in both coding languages, which are designed to work together seamlessly. Nevertheless, there will continue to be a big push for Swift once it becomes more widely known.”
As one of the few iOS-specific coding bootcamps, Mobile Makers’ goal is to prepare beginners for a career in iOS development. The academy provides more than 250 hours of guided instruction, creating a real-world learning environment with a full suite of learning tools. In addition, Mobile Makers’ curriculum includes specialty workshops and one-on-one mentorship in the academy’s online and on-site programs.
“Just as important as any language, coding schools need to equip students with the hard and soft skills that developers need to enter the job market,” Passley said. “Also, dev shops should encourage junior developers to continue learning and sharpening their technical knowledge in order to keep up with the industry’s fast pace.”
