Apps, apps, apps! The whole world is talking about apps. Whether you are looking to promote your business or have a great idea which could be the next million selling smash, our 101 workshops are a great way to learn how to create Apple iOS apps suitable for the iPhone and iPad. We will guide you through the process of planning and creating apps in a simple, uncomplicated manner and provide help to distribute and generate income via the App Store.
The workshop will be delivered by Craig Lockwood (@craiginwales), a seasoned Apple developer who has had top ten chart success with a number of his apps. Craig also makes regular contributions to tech blogs and magazines and has spoken at various conferences in the UK about apps.
The day starts at 9:30 although rumour has it that if you arrive for 9:00 you will be greeted with a light breakfast and coffee. Lunch is included as well as copious amounts of coffee throughout the day. The workshop should end around 4:00pm.
This one day workshop is perfect for anybody interested in how an app is constructed. Whether you are a designer looking to take your first step into iOS development, or if you pitch the idea of apps to clients, this workshop is a fantastic insight into what is possible in the world of mobile app development.
Previous workshop attendees have included designers, PR agencies, marketing staff, web developers, students and teachers.
Nobody could learn a new programming language in just one day, but this workshop will give you the knowledge to acquire the correct tools and resources to start building iPhone and iPad apps immediately. We will actually be building an app from scratch together throughout the course of the day.
By the end of the workshop you will know how to plan your app, build an app, and publish your apps to the iTunes App Store.
Everything is provided for the day so you just need to bring a smile and a willingness to learn.
Feel free to bring along a laptop or iPad to take notes but a computer isn't essential as you will be working in groups with others.
*Bring along plenty of business cards as there will be lots of time for networking with other like minded souls.
