The LSU Center for Computation & Technology will host for the first time the LSU iOS Application Boot Camp August 1-12 (10 day camp; not including weekends) on the LSU Campus. This new educational experience offers LSU undergraduates the opportunity to gain knowledge while enhancing their entrepreneurial spirit. Participants will work in groups to create their own operating App and have it loaded on their personal device by end of camp. Included is post-camp group knowledge sharing meetings.
“Imagine how courses across the University might be transformed and the entrepreneurial spirit of students might be enhanced if every LSU freshman arrived on campus with the ability to develop their own iOS app,” said Joel E. Tohline, Director of the LSU Center for Computation & Technology.
During iOS Boot Camp, participants will work hands on in groups and will:
- be introduced to the Macintosh operating system, iOS software development kit, X code
- learn various iOS application development, processes and techniques
- test and improve upon their new developmental skills
- create an application that will be deployed on their own iPhones, iPods, or iPads
- be introduced to mobile applications’ business market, trends and opportunities.
