Event Details

Secret Lab is Australia's most amazing iOS development studio. Learn iOS development from the best!

Secret Lab iOS developer training

Every programmer needs a great platform to write their amazing apps on, and iOS 6 is the next evolution of the world's most advanced mobile app platform. How are you going to be positioned to compete in the fast-paced App Store?
Come join us in Sydney for three action-packed days of training and tuition, where you'll learn all you need to create amazing apps for iOS 6.

We cover everything an existing programmer needs to get up to speed developing iOS apps for iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, iPad mini and beyond!

You'll learn:


  • How to design an app that your users will love
  • The ins and outs of Objective-C, the programming language used in iOS
  • How to use Xcode 4 to its full potential
  • How to work magic in the App Store for your product's success
  • How to take advantage of the incredible new developer features introduced in iOS 5 and iOS 6
  • How to let your user use their data anywhere with iCloud


You'll get the most out of this course if you've developed software before, but you don't have to have written apps for iOS yet. If you have, that's great too - iOS 6 brings so much new stuff to the table that you'll be learning heaps, no matter your background.
By the end of the course, you'll be fully trained in developing advanced applications using iOS 6 technologies, and be ready to apply them to whatever problem you're trying to solve. You'll also receive an exclusive digital copy of our Secret Lab iOS Field Manual, so you can continue your learning from the comfort of your own sofa.**
