Do you have an idea for a mobile app? Does computer programming seem impossible? Do you want to change career paths?
iPhone app development is exploding and as an app developer you have options. You can choose to either make your own app idea or earn a fantastic salary. Look for yourself, iPhone developers are making $97,000 - $137,000 in New York (Indeed.com, May 2013).
This class is designed for non-geeks and people without any programming experience.
Remember how you learned to ride a bike? You might have tumbled a few times, but you kept going until you made it down the street. In the same way you can learn to create iPhone apps. In my iPhone course you'll be able to code apps from scratch and learn fundamental programming concepts.

As your programming coach, I will guide you through a full iPhone app from start to finish that will be on its way to the App Store. I will provide source code for all examples so that you can see how an experienced developer works. During the class, I'll create a utility app for you to follow along step-by-step. But more importantly, you can apply everything in this class to your own projects.
Check out this short video on the sample project called "Mat Border Calculator." It's an app to help photographers and artists frame and mat their artwork.
