Coruse Discription
The iPhone and iPad are the latest revolutionary mobile platforms for digital entertainment and touch-screen convenience. This course will use innovative iPhone SDK Xcode and Interface Builder along with the principles of Cocoa development to introduce you to universal object-oriented programming skills that can carry over into any other programming language. You will learn an in-demand job skill while digitally connecting with friends, creating games, experimenting with the visual technology of the on-board camera and the accelerometer, and using touch-screen technology to interact with a touch-recognition user interface.

This course provides the groundwork for realizing your creative potential for deploying business-related apps, making graphics with animation or building fun games. We will build original projects and work from prepared source files to understand the inner workings of professional iPhone and iPad applications.

Please note if students desire to test on an iPhone/iPad device they should bring their own personal device to class. In-class work will be done on an iPhone simulator.
