About Objects has trained hundreds of iOS developers, including programmers from Apple, Adobe, Genentech, DoD, eBay, Intel, MIT, NASA, and Yahoo! The company helps instructors and students stay in touch through an invitation-only social networking site, which also enables About Objects to provide updated lab exercises and examples after the training has ended.
Here's what recent attendee Phil Komarny of Seton Hill University had to say about the experience of attending a series of About Objects classes:
"To take Seton Hill University's iPad deployment (an iPad for Everyone) to the next level we selected About Objects for training. After spending two weeks in Reston with Jonathan we are better equipped to build the next 'great' app for education. Coming from the education world it was very exciting to have a trainer with such a deep background and the skills to transfer that knowledge to such a diverse class of students. Excellent content, excellent trainer, excellent results."
Another recent attendee, Wendy Kastner, summed it up this way:
"The classes fulfilled a much-needed bridge for those of us who needed to come up to speed quickly. As steep as the learning curve was, learning ANSI/Objective-C from the ground up is absolutely the way to go!
"I will definitely be able to make better design decisions as a result of the programming knowledge I have gleaned, and I highly recommend it to any UX professional."
