Sat., July 9, 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.: Intro to iPhone Development for Programmers at NYC Resistor
Are you a programmer who has yet to take the plunge into building your own iPhone app? Would you like a whirlwind tour to help you get up and running? This class is for you. NYC Resistor will help you get going, and avoid pitfalls common to those getting started in iPhone Development.
Previous object-oriented programming experience. Basic understanding of objects and classes.
Laptop Requirements: You MUST have a macbook or borrow a macbook running Snow Leopard.
Before class: Sign up for the free Apple developer’s program( http://developer.apple.com/programs/register/) and make sure you have the iPhone SDK 4.3 (4.2 is also fine if you already have 4.2).
You can download 4.3 here.
Note: This is a massive file and you will not have time to download this during class, so please be sure you do this in advance.
In this three-hour class they will cover:
* An overview of the Objective-C language
* Important concepts to iPhone dev, including: Memory Management, Properties, Protocols, and Delegates
* The toolset (XCode, Interface Builder, Instruments)
* Details about Views and View Controllers, the cornerstone of most apps
* Dos and don’ts to keep in mind as you begin
This class will be taught by Resistor members Chris Beauvois and Alexis Goldstein
