By this time of January, most people have started to add caveats to their well-intentioned New Year’s Resolutions. I won’t drink on weekdays. When there’s a full moon. Unless I hear a dog bark. But if your plans for 2014 extend to something slightly more ambitious then digital education start-up Steer have just the thing for you.
Starting next month, Steer is running an iOS development course during which participants will learn how to create an iPhone or iPad app from scratch. Designed for beginners, the course comes at a time when mobile app use is growing 115% year on year, and many employers are hungry for staff with these kinds of skills. This course also covers Xcode, Apple’s suite of tools for creating iOS and OS X apps, and Objective-C, the object-oriented programming language that is used by Apple and their developers to create their apps.
Our director Will Hudson went along last year to pop his coding cherry and was blown way by the way he was walked through this brave new world.
Places are limited for this course which runs from 3-7 February; for more information visit the Steer website now!
