      Angry Nerds ~ App Development Camp (2)

      Angry Nerds presents Attack of the Apps! A practical, one week course on app development for beginners. Together with a team of aspiring nerds, under the tutelage of an experienced developer, with the guidance of a team coach, you'll pick a challenge in your daily life to face off with. Then you'll design a simple solution in the form of an app, then prototype, test and build it, making your life just a little more awesome. By the end of the week, you'll have mastered the basics of iOS/Android app development, the fundamentals of design thinking, and have an app/play-store ready app you can show off to all your friends, or all your cats, whatever... (Optional €100 app/play store publisher fee not included in course fee).  Who Is It ForThis course is designed for regular human people with little-to-no development experience. You should be a curious individual, who like getting your hands dirty and doesn't mind going toe to toe with the establishment if the weather is nice enough. Think this might be for you? Join the mass of angry nerds railing against the injustices of our digital overlords. Now is your chance to arm yourself! Take control of your future! Change or die!!! p.s.
