Posted: Feb 17, 2012 5-DAY iOS (iPHONE & iPAD) DEVELOPMENT BOOTCAMP
Source: New Media Manitoba
In the last 4 years the app economy has produced 500,000 new jobs, a staggering amount when you consider how few people were considered "app developers" in 2008.
In anticipation of this massive mobile growth we launched the iPhone Development Bootcamp to prepare Manitoba developers to meet the need for new app development contracts.
I regret to say, we've fallen short.
Even after offering 2 sold out training sessions on app development for the past two years running there are still not enough experienced mobile app developers in Manitoba to meet the demand we receive from clients locally and abroad.
Manitoba desperately needs to increase the number of iPhone and iPad app developers in the province or we will continue to see app contracts go to Vancouver, Montreal, the U.S. and overseas.
I don't know how to be any clearer in saying that there are hundreds of thousands of dollars going to other regions to develop apps when the work could be done by capable developers here in Manitoba.
We have a potential solution, but it relies heavily on innovative freelancers and companies understanding the larger opportunity they can generate for themselves.
On March 5, 2012, we will offer our last 5-day iOS (iPhone and iPad) development bootcamp led by the most recognized iOS Trainers in the world: Big Nerd Ranch.
Big Nerd Ranch offers their world-reknown, 5-day development training, in their hometown of Atlanta, Georgia. This is THE course you take if you work at companies like Pixar, Apple, Google, AOL, and Adobe.
The cost to take this course at Big Nerd Ranch (when it's not sold out) is over $6,000.
The EXACT same Big Nerd Ranch course, with the EXACT same Big Nerd Ranch trainer, offered HERE in Manitoba is just $1,500.
That's 75% off what everyone else pays.
Now that may not beat free kolbassa in a glass from Domo but it comes pretty darn close.
This will be the last time we offer this course as it takes a great deal of co-investment, sponsorship and planning, not to mention Big Nerd Ranch is in huge demand by clients worldwide.
We have only 8 seats that we can accommodate for this rate and once they are gone, that will be it.
If you understand the value of this course but have other things going on during the week of March 5, then I encourage you to rethink your other plans.
You will NEVER find this course offered at this price anywhere else in the world except Winnipeg, MB, on March 5, 2012, and this is the LAST time we will be able to offer it at this drastically reduced rate.
We are extremely fortunate that the Province of Manitoba understands the importance of training more mobile app developers here and has partnered with us to make this happen.
We need YOU to step up and show that you have the right attitude and the desire to be one of our go-to app producers.
