With the Professionals’ Choice, students get 12 original applications complete with sample code; step-by-step instructions on how to build Mac OS X applications; and audio lectures that include advice from Apple engineers who helped develop Mac OS X and Macintosh developers who use Mac OS X development tools professionally. These classes were built in collaboration with the ADC and Apple engineers. The track also features O’Reilly Networks’ Mac OS X developer books, including “Learning Carbon” and “Learning Cocoa.”
The two new Mac OS X courses in the Professionals’ Choice are:
Advanced Coding for Java and Mac OS X: This class picks up where the introductory Java coding class left off. Written entirely for Mac OS 10.2 (“Jaguar-ready”) and covers such topics as Swing and integrating other object-oriented programming elements into Java applications. The class should take students, familiar with Java development, about 40 hours to complete. In the class, students will be able to develop an original application and will have access to Java code for download.
The New Mac OS X Developer’s Seminar: Designed as an overview of the development opportunities and languages available in Mac OS X, this interactive class is also Jaguar-ready. It takes students through a 2-5 hour journey of Mac OS X’s development tools, including Interface Builder and Project Builder. The course also offers real-world examples of Mac OS X code and applications.
Both of these classes are available at MediaSchool for separate purchase, as well as part of the Professionals’ Choice package. To sign up, or for more info, visit MediaSchool.
