Virginia Marti College of Art and Design in Lakewood, Ohio announces a cutting-edge, two-day course on mobile application development featuring Appcelerator "Titanium" - designed to turn student programmers from zero to hero in one short weekend.
LAKEWOOD, Ohio, Feb. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- With the future of mobile applications skyrocketing due to smart phones and other mobile technology developments, Virginia Marti College of Art and Design announces a two-day course in mobile application development specifically for the modern web designer living in northeast Ohio. A very affordable price tag of $199 for the Friday/Saturday course is designed to allow students, recent graduates and anyone in the NEO web developer community to take advantage of the rapid changes occurring in mobile technology today, with the hopes of empowering the entire NEO region with the ability to meet the current and emerging mobile development demand.
"There's just so much more demand for mobile applications than there are developers," explained Phillip Williams, owner of Bafmin LLC – a mobile applications development company operating in northeast Ohio. Williams, who will be leading the course at the design school on Friday the 18th and Saturday the 19th of February, will be one of the world's first certified trainers for Appcelerator and is excited about helping to develop the region's Tech economy.
"As someone interested in sustainability and the NEO region, it just seemed like the right thing to do for this region and the community by helping to development the exploding mobile applications industry," he confessed. "In 1992, it was the development of websites that was phenomenal. Today, it's the growth of mobile applications, which we've barely begun to tap into as of yet. Appcelerator is offering this course itself later in the month, at $2,000 a seat, so this is an incredible opportunity for young developers to learn about the future of programming development at a low, low price."
The two-day course, which features work with Appcelerator's Titanium Mobile software for mobile application development, will enable developers to learn how to create applications quickly and efficiently that can be used to prototype and complete mobile apps. Students completing the inexpensive course will develop a working application that can be distributed at the Android Marketplace or Apple's iTunes store. Participating students will receive a free 8G USB drive pre-loaded with software for mobile apps development.
The course, running Friday, February 18th from Noon to 8 p.m. and Saturday, February 19th from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., will be held at Virginia Marti College of Art and Design at 11724 Detroit Avenue in Lakewood. Interested developers can register today at www.mobile.vmcad.edu or contact 216. 221.8584 for more information.
