Wyncode Academy – South Florida’s very first coding school, announced yesterday the addition of a 6-week, part-time iOS development course that will be aimed at teaching students how to build iOS apps using Objective-C, Xcode IDE, Parse APIs, and Apple very own Swift. The new program will begin Monday, July 6th at Wyncode’s Miami campus.
“It’s a great time to be learning iOS coding,” says Wyncode cofounder, Juha Mikkola, in a statement. “Apple is dominating app monetization, more and more companies are seeking coders that can build iOS apps, and the average salary for iOS developers is second only to coders proficient in Ruby on Rails; so it was crucial for Wyncode to adapt and offer courses in both languages to our students.”
The new course offered by Wyncode will take place three days a week and will be taught by YellowPepper‘s development and architecture director, Karl Goodhew, as well as YellowPepper iOS developer, Derek Miller. The course does require that participants have previous programming knowledge, as the curriculum will take experienced coders through everything from basic animation, debugging, and data storage, to geo-location, security and advanced object-oriented coding.
Wyncode’s emphasis on project-based learning has pushed it to become a notable force in the South Florida tech community. Earlier this year, the brick-and-mortar coding school joined the likes of Dev Bootcamp, App Academy, General Assembly, and the Flatiron School as members of the New Economy Skills Training Association (NESTA) to support initiatives preparing the American workforce for jobs in the new tech economy. In April, they announced an expansion to Fort Lauderdale.
Those interested in participating in Wyncode Academy’s new iOS development course can apply now on their website. Tuition is $3,500, with graduates from Wyncode’s intensive web-development courses receiving a $500 discount.
