Our Android Bootcamp will immerse students in the Android platform, leveraging their existing Java expertise, and allowing them to walk away from the class ready to build efficient, responsive, well-constructed mobile applications. From Cupcakes to Marshmallows, the world has a sweet tooth for Android. Our Android bootcamp will immerse you in a mobile development platform unlike any other. If you’ve already conquered Java, get ready to build efficient, responsive, well-constructed mobile applications in just a matter of days. On the first morning of bootcamp you’ll be up and at ‘em—and writing your first Android Activities. Through the rest of the week, you will be introduced to all the code confections the little green robot has to offer—implicit intents, fragments, touch interaction and more. You will apply this knowledge by working through code every step of the way. Get ready to work hard and learn even harder in this intensive five-day introduction to programming with the Android platform.

The beginning is a great place to start. If you're an iOS developer who wants to build applications that run on the iPhone or iPad, our Beginning iOS Bootcamp, fully updated for iOS 9, is just what you need. Kick off your quest for knowledge with two days devoted to learning Swift, then dive headfirst into our five-day iOS bootcamp. In just seven challenging days, we’ll have you building your first iOS application. You'll become an active participant in the iOS programming community, allowing you to continue learning even past day eight, when you emerge a better, stronger Nerd. This is the fun stuff, but there’s hard work involved. After two days of learning the Swift language and Foundation framework, we delve into important toolchains and the classes that make up the iOS UI framework. Learn how to lay out interfaces using Auto Layout, tackle multi-touch event handling and take on custom drawing and animations. We’ve taught this bootcamp for Facebook, Cisco, AT&T, SAS and many more. We’d be delighted to bring it to you, too.
