It’s not hard to spot the iOS students on the Devmountain campus—they have a swagger. They are as passionate as other developers, but it looks like they get out of the house more.
If you’re someone who is obsessed with using technology to make the world a better or more interesting place, yet you never lose track of design, you’ll be right at home with the unorthodox individualists in our iOS program.
Out in the wild, they often work with product teams—sometimes including other devs, a UX designer or two, some QA help, and a marketing manager who uses words like viral or scalability. Though some iOS developers have more of a lone-entrepreneur vibe, and just like to start their own companies.

XCODE + SWIFT
What is the iOS Development Course Like?
Over 13 demanding weeks in our iOS development bootcamp you’ll find out what it means to be an app developer. Using tools like Github and Xcode to collaborate, and languages like Objective-C and Swift to create, you’ll prepare for a career in tech. At the end of the course, students work with Software QA and UX Design students to create an app for Apple products.
Typically classes are Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m (MST). There is often homework on the evenings and weekends.

Where Is the iOS Development Course Taught?

What Happens if I Apply for the iOS Course?
The application process isn’t about you proving yourself to us, rather it’s about you making sure the course will meet your needs and you have a reasonable chance at succeeding.
If you complete your application successfully, you’ll be admitted. If you’re no longer interested, then don’t pay your deposit and there will be no commitment. If you want to move ahead, then pay the deposit and get ready for class.
The consultation is a 20-30 minute chat with an admissions counselor about you, your goals, and your questions.
The skill review is an opportunity to try a little work with iOS concepts before you commit to the program.
How Can iOS Development Help With Your Career?
Some people are looking for their first real career-level job and others are looking to move ahead in the career they already have. The iOS program is great for both. You’ll learn enough for many entry-level positions, or, for the more experienced, it will add a whole new dimension to what you’re able to do. (You could become the go-to iOS dev on your team.)
But wait! There’s more!
Our iOS students get access to our outcomes team—a dedicated group of career services professionals who can (and will) help you with resumes, LinkedIn profiles, portfolios, interviewing tips, and more. They’d love nothing more than talking to you about your career goals and aspirations, and help you make a plan for the future. (They really, really seem to like that sort of thing.)
