Adult Workshop: Introduction to iOS Development (SOLD OUT)

  • Odecee 6/15 William Street Melbourne, VIC, 3000 Australia (map)

Ever wanted to learn how to make your own iOS app? This workshop will guide you through the many stages of doing just that and by the end of it, you will have a working app that YOU built. You’ll learn how to pull data from the internet, store it offline and present it in a beautiful way to users of your app. The approach to creating apps is very different to how you would go about creating a website, so don’t worry, we will guide you through that too!

This workshop is part of our Professional Series which target women who have some coding experience or who currently work in the tech industry (front-end/back-end developers, testers, QA, etc.)
