Local app dev studio immedia is running its second round of countrywide app dev training courses next moth to upskill South Africa’s developers.
April’s training sessions in a joint venture with akosma software will provide interested developers with the know-how to create their very own smartphone and tablet apps. These training courses will run in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban and provide participants with the knowledge to join the app revolution, empowering them to be part of the globally competitive digital community. These training courses will be headed by professional trainers from Switzerland to South Africa, who are all experts in their field.
Application developer, Mohamed Osman, who attended the iOS Beginners training course said that “The training was very good. We had a great intro and good insight into practical development. It is better than training videos in that respect because it wasn’t sticking to theory but looking at commercial implementation of Apple apps.”
