So you want to build an iPhone app: Learn how

, CoFounder PeopleHunt

Learn the steps involved in shipping an iPhone/iPad app with experienced iPhone app developer, Adrian.

This class is designed for you to get a clear understanding of the steps required to see your app in the app store, and we will hold a brainstorming session at the end to discuss app ideas and challenges.

About Us

I have built and shipped six fully featured iPhone apps, including which was built in six days and pitched at the NYTechMeetup, and PeopleHunt, my current startup. 

I also designed and taught an 8 week iPhone workshop in the hackerspace I was a founding member of, 091Labs, in Galway, Ireland.

I have extensive experience with paper prototyping, user interface design, user experience design, graphic design, and the iOS SDK, including geolocation functionality, notifications, chat, photo uploading, Facebook and Twitter integration, as well as fully fledged backend support. 

You should have an awesome iPhone/iPad app idea that you want to work on. Maybe you have already started to build it, or you have questions on what you need to get started/finished.

    Over the course of the session you will learn the skills and steps required to get an app into the app store, from idea to reality.

    This includes

    - paper prototyping

    - idea refining

    - chunking the idea into code pieces

    - understanding the database and backend requirements

    - app store requirements

    At the end we will have a brainstorming session to challenge your app ideas and learn from others.

    You will have the chance to ask any questions about provisioning, distribution, testflight, and other app store issures.
