Toronto, Canada – Training provider Infinite Skills is now offering a tutorial video course designed to make becoming an iOS Developer easier than it ever has been before. Presented by author Tony Bove, Learning To Build Apps For iPhone and iPad takes viewers through the standard app development cycle using the iOS SDK and Xcode all the way to submission to the App Store.
“The iPad and iPhone have established themselves as the premier mobile platforms for the future,” said Colin Boyd, sales director for Infinite Skills. “People want to create apps that are as elegant and useful as the devices themselves, and we’re offering the basic building blocks needed to get started.”
The course focuses on two central app development projects, so that the viewers can follow along and build the apps themselves, piece by piece. Throughout this hands-on process, author Tony Bove provides relevant technical information and key background details as they directly apply to the tasks being shown. Viewers learn about specific hardware features and limitations of both the iPhone and the iPad, with tips on how to make development decisions accordingly, and learn how to work with the iOS SDK, XCode and the App Store framework to build and release their application to a wide audience. Even basic programming concepts and techniques are included for viewers who have never created their own code.
The iOS App Development Tutorial Video series includes 105 separate lessons, with a total running length of 12.5 hours. In addition to covering the basic steps of creating an app for the iPhone and iPad, it also includes point-by-point tips for animating menus, incorporating iAd banners within an app, personalizing user controls through gestures, troubleshooting bugs and creating Universal apps that can be played across all iOS devices.
“While there are a standard set of options most users expect to find in an iPhone or iPad app, as a developer you’ll also want to add your own personal touches,” said Chris Johns, content specialist for Infinite Skills. “What’s great about this tutorial is that Tony teaches you the skills to do both.”
The author of more than a dozen books, Tony Bove has years of experience as a consultant and speaker throughout the technology industry. Bove uses his perspective to help viewers position iOS app creation within a greater context of usability and data accessibility, while maintaining a clear, jargon-free tone developed during years of writing beginner-friendly books, Johns said.
