The LSU Center for Computation & Technology will host the LSU iOS App Boot Camp for its second year, July 30-August 10, 2012 (10 day camp; not including weekends) on the LSU Campus. This educational experience will offer participants the opportunity to gain knowledge while enhancing their entrepreneurial spirit.

Post-camp programs to expand and hone new skills will also be available.
During the iOS App Boot Camp, participants will work hands on, individually, and in groups.

Prerequisites: Understanding of general computer use (Windows, Linux or Mac); interest in learning and creating new technologies. Prior programming experience is beneficial but not required. Click here for a listing of pre-bootcamp guides and/or tutorial information.
Registration and Cost: $300 for LSU undergraduate students; $600 All Others. Participants are encouraged to bring their own Mac laptop to class, as well as their iPhone/iPod/iPad. The CCT will provide loaner laptops for in-class use to participants who do not bring a Mac on a first-come first-serve basis.

none. I learned so much and can't wait to keep
coding. Every group had a working app at the
end, which for a group of non-computer majors
and no programming experience was an absolutely
incredible experience." Anonymous
