Following on the success of last year’s app dev courses, our second session has come to a close. Partnering with akosma software’s Adrian Kosmaczewski, we toured the app dev circuit in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban and with the encouraging feedback, it looks like we have exciting times ahead.
Adrian and immedia Head of Development, Kishyr Ramdial conducted the courses. The first of what we hope to be a quarterly initiative has allowed us to connect with a brand new batch of learners, who are honing in their skills and are ready to turn the South African development world on its head.
Underpinning this initiative is the desire to enhance mobile app development skills amongst the dev community in South Africa. Application developer, Mohamed Osman, who attended the iOS Beginners training course said, “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.”
Software engineer, Riyaad Miller, who attended the Mobile Web App Development course added, “You’ll never believe how long I’ve been looking for a course that provides this content locally. It was very beneficial and I can certainly see myself using this in aid of my development efforts. Adrian is clearly an expert in his field…”
As a quarterly initiative, these courses aim to create and amplify app dev skills across the country and we are hoping that our touring band of trainers and strategists will be instrumental in bridging the knowledge gap between traditional training received in school and tertiary institutes and internationally relevant application development.
Our next App Dev Training session takes places from 10 – 24 April.
