About this workshop series

Mobile applications have become a staple of everyday life. There are over 1.4 million apps in the App Store, and iOS developers have earned a total of more than $25 billion since the first iPhone launched in 2007. Many of us have had ideas for mobile apps float through our minds, and it’s entirely possible one of your ideas could turn into something great — but without the knowledge of how to create, design, and market your new app, it’s impossible for your idea to come to fruition. This workshop will teach you about the process of designing an app from start to finish — from the inception of your idea, to learning about iOS design, and applying these design rules in a wireframe you design from scratch.

With the release of the iPad and Apple Watch, knowledge of Swift is an increasingly in-demand skill. This weekend workshop will also give you a taste of what it takes to build an iOS app in Swift. You'll learn the Basics of Xcode, Interface Builder, Playgrounds, and the Swift language. By the end of the day, you'll build a small calculator app.
