"From complete beginner to junior developer in three months"
Our iOS 8 immersive course teaches the tools needed to develop iPhone and iPad applications for iOS 8. Along our journey, we will learn the syntax of Swift, the language used to develop for iOS, as well as important design patterns and best practices for developing mobile applications. By the end of the course, you should be able to understand and recreate many of the features seen on popular iOS applications and extend that knowledge to making apps of your own.
We believe students learn by building. You will learn by buiding 14 apps during the course, with the final app being a full featured dating app with multiple users, direct chat, and complete profiles.
"I must say that so far, this course is awesome. Having the challenging assignments, daily discussions and feedback from the instructors, has been the missing piece that I have been looking for. I have read a handful of books, watched hours of video & typed in a bunch of tutorials, and finally, having to work through tough assignments and applying what I have been learning, it is all starting to click - Finally!" - Mark S.
"This course is by far the most elaborate and best taught iOS course I have seen online yet. It's good structured and covers a lot of topics in-depth." - Christoph Zamaitat
“Bitfountain's discussion board is one of the best resources for a beginning iOS developer. So much help being offered" - Omar S.
"Great course for total beginners, but also a lot of tricks and tips for those with experience. Also good seeing how others code and tackle problems. A great learning tool what ever your skill level." - Mazza1111
“I've just completed the iOS course, which I thought was a great intro to the XCode environment... I feel it's been well worth the investment. " - Herdy H.
"I am about a quarter of the way through this course and have no previous programming experience. I have found this course to be well presented and structured with everything explained clearly. This is a difficult topic and you have to work hard understanding the concepts if you are new to it, but it is easy to go back over an area to pick up anything you might have missed first time round. The guys are constantly improving it and adding to it and seem committed to getting it 100% right. Recommend it....but be prepared to work hard!!" - Tony McDonald
“Can't reiterate it enough how this course is helping me with my iOS dev skills. I think using protocols and delegation is finally becoming second nature. Fingers crossed :-)" -Alex P.
“I am really loving the class. I have taken classes at Code School & Treehouse and both were missing a key element. The ability to ask questions as you complete a section and get an answer. “ -Lisa A.
“Your training is the best out there so far. I wish I had the time away from regular job to follow along." -Christian S.
“Im loving this.. I have been through at least 5 books, and many online deals. Yours is super so far. Finally, i can get from start to finish on a lesson without wondering why on "Everything" thank you. Cant wait to do more.. “ -Kevin R.
Why take this course and how much time does it take to complete?
iOS development, and software development as a whole, is a booming career. The demand for new developers at all levels far outweighs the supply. Barrier to entry is not as high as one would think - though passion and hard work are necessary, a degree in computer science or any other technical field is not required.
We aim to take you from complete beginner to junior developer in three months. The apps you create in this course can be used on your portfolio so you have something to show when you apply for jobs.
