Searching for iPhone App Development tutorial courses, I came across one of Kickstarter’s projects the Try iOS, an iPhone App Development Course Project. Basically the course objective is teaching how to create iPhone apps in a fun and entertaining way.
The project features for the viewer to learn how to build iPhone apps by watching videos and coding in the browser, with no downloads needed.
The main objective of the project is to create Try iOS, a Code School course where you can learn to build your own iPhone apps. The course will use high quality screencasts, in-browser challenges, and some principles to make learning fun. Student’s need not to install anything, as they will build iPhone apps using Try iOS browser iPhone simulator.
The man behind Try iOS: iPhone App Development Course Kickstarter project is Eric Allam from CodeSchool.com. Eric is a part of the awesome team at Envy Labs, and is behind TryRuby.org, a Code School project that teaches Ruby programming language using an interactive Ruby ready website.
