iOS App Development Course

If you want to learn a new skill, take up a hobby or even change your career, then perhaps learning mobile app development will interest you. We’ll soon be running a free iOS App Development Course open to all residents in Wixams which will be held weekly in the evening in Lakeview Village Hall.

Topics

App development is a huge subject so we’ll be covering all the topics needed to get you started and the know-how to take it further if you wish.

Some of the topics we will cover:

  • Introduction to the Swift programming language
  • More programming techniques
  • Introduction to Xcode (the tool used for building iOS apps)
  • Building user interfaces
  • Downloading content from the internet and displaying it
  • Saving data
  • Using libraries to enrich your app
  • Debugging (finding & fixing bugs)
  • Introduction to Android development

Entry Requirements

To take part in this course you must be at least 16 years of age and have a Mac laptop you can bring to the course and use in your own time. Not everyone has a Mac but unfortunately this is a must for iOS development to run Xcode.

Experience in programming is not essential but will be helpful. If you have no programming experience you might be asked to do some extra learning in your own time, we can recommend some videos which will help.

How to Apply

Please email us at community@wixams.org for more information and to reserve your place.Please let us know if you have programming experience and any related qualifications.

Due to the social distancing restrictions in place in the village hall the course will be limited to 14 people so book early to avoid disappointment. Because of this limit we will also prioritise those people with programming or technical experience, please contact us and we can discuss this further.

Please note: The course will not start until the current ‘Rule of 6’ restrictions are removed.
