iPhone App Development Class

Event Description

Learn to build an iPhone app that uses U.S. Global Positioning System (GPS) data!

This three-hour course will cover how to build an app by taking a hands-on approach to learning. We will discuss the basics of app design and then build an app that utilizes GPS. Other features such as gestures and data input will be discussed and added to the app as time allows.

To get the most out of the class, the following items will allow you to build and run an app: 

1. A modern Apple computer with wifi running the xCode program (free download),
2. An iPhone with a charging cable. 

However, these items are not required. Even if you don't have this equipment, you can still join us to learn about building apps! Pizza will be provided by the Los Alamos/Northern New Mexico IEEE Section. For questions please contact Mike Ham at mih0001@gmail.com.

This class is designed for ages 13 and up and is limited to 20 participants. Registration is required. If registration is currently full, your name will be placed on a waiting list and you will be notified by email if a spot opens for you.
