iPhone App Development Study Group

How would you like to learn iPhone App Development this summer? Me too. That’s why I decided to organize a group to watch the video lectures from the Stanford class together. We can work thru the assignments together. Learn together, get to know each other, figure things out, etc. It’s going to be awesome. Here are the details:

What: a free iPhone App development “class” where we watch the Stanford lectures together and do the assignments with help from each other
When: Mondays & Thursday nights from 7-9pm, May 31st-August 12th.
Where: Gumbo Labs, 4820 Banks St. Studio #5, New Orleans, LA 70119
Who: Anyone interested. I’ll be the organizer and video projectionist. I wont be the “teacher” though. I’ll be learning this along with everyone else.
Registration: To sign up, just introduce yourself on this forum thread. Also, add the App Dev Forum RSS feed to your newsreader to keep up with discussion on the forum.

Other Notes:

  • I’m going to try and get a Mac set up at Gumbo Labs with the iPhone developer tools installed for those folks who are interested, but don’t have a Mac. But it would be best if you had your own Intel Mac laptop.
  • These lectures were recorded for iPhone OS3. Even though iPhone OS4 beta is out now, I suggest sticking with iPhone OS3 for this class.

    Is there any way to get around the Dev Program requirement that you pay the Dev fee to test on your own device? I’d love to learn, but not actually being able to interact with a physical device could be a large roadblock for me.

    @Dylan If you want to test on a physical device, there’s no way around the $99 fee that I know of. Well, maybe if you jailbreak your phone. Maybe if enough people are interested, we could buy one $99 developer fee together under the Gumbo Labs umbrella. Ten people put in $10 isn’t too bad…

    I’d pitch in! I’m going to see if there is a way around that fee with jailbroken devices.

    A google group was set up for the auditors of the Stanford CS193p Winter iTunes class. Besides the discussions it has some useful information like indexes for some of the videos where what is discussed at what time.

    There are two Thursdays that we wont be able to meet because the Ruby Bayou group already had a meeting planned: June 24th and July 29th.

    [...] GumboLabs is hosting sessions of the Standford iPhone development classes now through August. They’ve only viewed a couple of episode, so it should be pretty easy to catch up. http://www.gumbolabs.org/2010/05/06/iphone-app-development-study-group/ [...]
