I couldn’t be more excited to share that I’ll be attending the Spring 2013 session of Mobile Makers, a Dev Bootcamp for iOS in Chicago!!!
I’ve been considering learning iPhone programming for a while now. In fact, I gave it a big try back in September 2011. Now that I know Ruby on Rails, I feel like I’m in a much better place to learn iOS. I also like to learn what scares me, and, I have to admit, learning iOS definitely scares a little. I was also very scared of learning Ruby on Rails when I first started, and Dev Bootcamp really helped me build my skills and my confidence.
A few weeks ago, Manilla, the company I proudly work for, mentioned that they’re looking for iOS developers (if you are one, I encourage you to apply!), and they’d be open to consider anyone on the Ruby on Rails team. That got me excited again about iOS, and I knew the only way I’d be able to transition fast is if I did another immersive learning program, like Dev Bootcamp. I applied to Mobile Makers a few weeks ago, and got admitted. I’m really lucky to have Manilla sponsor me, and allow me to come back as an iOS developer upon completion of Mobile Makers at the end of June.
If you’re in Chicago and would like to meet up, let me know! I’ll be at Mobile Makers between April 29th and June 20th 🙂
