A new Kickstarter project promises to teach iOS development to absolute newbies, all from within a Web browser, for as little as $25. Already, the project has passed its funding goal of $50,000 with 25 days remaining, meaning potential backers can be absolutely sure that their pledge will secure them a place in the course – as, technically, it’s already “funded.”
The project, “Try iOS: iPhone App Development Course,” will teach prospective students iPhone app development under iOS 6, which is expected to launch around October. Because of this, “Try iOS” will be available to backers from November, 2012. As outlined on the Kickstarter page, here’s what you can expect from the course:
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 (see the video above for a demo).
To get access to “Try iOS,” all Kickstarters need to pledge is $25 – though higher pledges come with additional perks. To enroll yourself in the course visit its Kickstarter page now, make a pledge and start thinking-up ideas for your first iOS app before November.
