Justin Beck, the developer that made the Parallel Kingdoms game will be talking about his experiences developing for the iPhone. This is to be at the University Wisconsin Madison on Thursday, May 7th at 4pm.
This is a go for the fall semester.
It will be held on Monday nights. Prerequisites would be 2nd semester Java or .NET, or consent of the instructor. I don’t know cost. It will be in a Mac lab, of course, and students will have access to iPod Touches for testing their applications.
It’s not official, and I asked my contact if it was ok to spread the word, but he never gave me a direct no. So I took it upon myself to say that they are attempting to implement a Developement for Mobile Platforms class. Excuse the title, but it will be something similar. Basically they’re wanting to put an iPhone Development class together. This will teach folks how to develop, share, and deploy iPhone apps. The title of the class will be mobile platform development of some kind which will allow them to change the curriculum of the class to other platforms of mobile computing.
This is not in place…yet. My source is reliable and I’m not making this up. Timeline is for fall of 09.
