iOS Programming Using Objective C

Students Will Learn:
  • Installation and Configuration of iOS Development Tools
  • Objective-C Language Syntax
  • MVC Architecture in Practice
  • The ARC System (Introduced in iOS 5)
  • Usage of the Most Common Views and View Controllers
  • Storyboard Development for Multiple Platforms
  • Use of the NeXTStep Objects
  • Data Persistence Using CoreData and iCloud
  • How to Use the Camera, GPS, Microphone and Accelerometer
  • Creation of Icons for Both Regular and Retina Displays
  • Threaded Programming Support
  • Web Services Support
  • How to Develop Interfaces for Multiple Platforms and Resolutions
  • Basic Graphics and Game Development

Course Description:Participants in this hands-on course will learn about and gain practice developing iOS applications for the full line of Apple mobile devices. As part of the course participants will create an example application which will demonstrate a majority of the iOS features as well as take advantage of a number of hardware systems and features.
Attendees will learn all the basics needed for iOS development, from installation of the Xcode editor to the Apple approval process. The Objective-C language is presented and used in hands on exercises to learn how it interacts with the hardware systems.
The exercises develop a business-oriented app from the ground up, which eventually incorporates all the major systems and concepts needed for most iOS apps. In addition the course introduces some important game development concepts.

Course Prerequisites:Prior programming experience in an object-oriented language such as Java, C# or C++.
