August 4th – 8th on the University of Vermont campus

Mobile App Development

The future is mobile

Join local Vermont app developer Justin Kuzma to spend a week learning the basics of iOS mobile app development. Over the course of the week, you’ll be working with Apple’s Xcode application and the Objective-C language, and learning how its language constructs interact with the iOS mobile operating environment.

Using a variety of tools, campers will learn what it takes to begin developing beautiful apps for the iPhone and iPad.

 

Kuzma worked with a team to develop "Country Perfume" during the 2012 Vermont Hackathon, now available on the app store for iPhone and iPad.

In addition to learning Objective-C and the X-Code development environment, you’ll look at:

  • What makes a good app? Testing / reflection / discussion / response
  • Creating design mockups
  • Lifecycle of an app (an idea –> mockups –> build –> test –> refine –> test –> release -> maintain)
  • iOS and the Apple Store’s evaluation system
  • Using media to enrich an app
  • App Developer responsibilities and relationships

Please note: campers will create a basic functional app using X-Code, but this course does not enable campers to automatically have their apps on the Apple App Store. For additional questions, please get in touch.
