Programming is exciting and constantly changing. If you love to learn and you love technology this is the right field for you. Mobile Development will enable you to bring your ideas to life. New ideas for apps are talked about everyday among friends. Developers are always thinking of new ways that they can innovate to make everyday processes easier with apps. Apple trademarked the phrase, “There’s an app for that”. There are apps for everything, because of developers. New technologies are enabling new kinds of apps to constantly be built. This class will teach the fundamentals of Mobile Development and give students opportunities to build a large code base. These experiences will enable students to release personal apps to the Apple App Store and the ability to land a job as a Junior Developer. This class will always adopt the newest technologies and stay up to date in order to best prepare students for the job force.
