The LSU Center for Computation & Technology (CCT) will host the LSU iOS App Boot Camp for its fourth year, August 4 - August 15, 2014, (10 day camp not including weekends), on the LSU Campus, Digital Media Center. This educational experience will offer participants the opportunity to gain knowledge while enhancing their entrepreneurial spirit. Participants will work in groups to create their own functional iOS app and have it loaded on their personal device by end of camp. The course will be taught by LSU faculty who push the boundaries of mobile applications in computer science and digital media fields. Post-camp programs to expand and hone new skills will also be offered.

During the iOS App Boot Camp, participants will work hands on, individually, and in groups to:

  • Be introduced to the MAC Operating System, iOS Software Development Kit, and Xcode.
Learn iOS application development processes and techniques while working on personal projects.

  • Test, refine, and improve upon their new developer skills.
Create an application of their own design that will be deployed on their own iPhones, iPods, or iPads.
Be introduced to mobile applications' business market, trends and opportunities.
