As the iOS platform gains popularity, more and more people want to dabble in iPhone app development. If you happen to be one of those people, then the folks over at Code School want to be the ones teaching you how to do just that. Here, Code School wants to teach those interested in iPhone app development by utilizing a series of web-based coding courses focused on learning to code for iOS. The new set of coursework is called Try iOS and is now available for backing at Kickstarter. The whole concept utilizes video, in-browser activities, and a hands-on approach to teaching anyone how to code for the iPhone. Code School mentions the following on their Kickstarter page:
We want to create Try iOS, a Code School course which teaches how to build your own iPhone apps. Our course will combine high quality screencasts, in-browser code challenges, and gamification principles to make learning fun. There will be no need to install anything, since students will build iPhone apps using our in-browser iPhone simulator.
- The educational materials.
- The graphic design & branding.
- Coding up the in-browser challenges (usually the most expensive part).
- Building and scaling the simulator technology.
- The front-end development.
- Film production.
- Refining the course based on feedback.
- Ongoing support and hosting.
If we raise additional funding than our ask we’ll simply add additional levels of content, so please help us spread the word.
