HOW TO PREPARE FOR THE IPHONE BOOT CAMP
You must have a basic understanding of computer programing to develop iPhone applications. Ideally you should know Objective-C although a knowledge of any objective oriented programming language such as Java, .Net, C or C++ is sufficient. We are not training in computer languages but iPhone application development using the most recent iPhone SDK.
If you do not have a basic knowledge of computer programming we recommend that you read the following books before taking the training. books should get your up to speed in about a month.
We recommend that you study the following material to prepare for the iPhone Boot Camp Master Classes and Workshops

NECESSARY GEAR TO CREATE IPHONE APPS
Intel based Mac with the latest version of the SDK. You must have an Intel Mac to develop iPhone Apps, so you should consider buying or renting one for the workshop, preferably a laptop. All new Apple laptops have the Intel chip
It is not necessary to own an iPhone or iTouch as you can test your programs on the simulator although some aspects of the accelerometer such as shake don’t work on the simulator. If you have an iPhone or iTouch you can test your application on the phone tethered to your Mac.
The workshop teaches the latest version of the SDK.You must be a registered iPhone Developer to download the SDK. Apple charges $99 to join the developer program and we strongly recommend doing so if you are going to develop iPhone Applications.
