SQT Training partners with iPhone app developer

29 Jan 2010

SQT Training, the Limerick-based firm that provides Lean Six Sigma, online marketing and other forms of education and training, has teamed up with iPhone application development firm OS3 to run another term of App School.

App School is the brainchild of Daniel Heffernan and Patrick Collison, the co-founder of start-up Auctomatic, which was acquired for US$5 million in 2008.

Partnering with OS3, SQT and App School will see OS3 CEO Damian O’Suilleabhain as the tutor on the upcoming course running next month in Dublin from 15-19 February.

The course is aimed at developers looking to design, create and publish iPhone, iPod touch and iPad apps through the App Store and will take attendees through everything “from writing their first lines of Objective-C to publishing their app in the iTunes App Store”.

The five days includes hands-on tuition, with course material designed by successful iPhone developers, and also looks at the marketing and sales end of mobile application development.

App School also covers the non-obvious tricks of the trade, like how to maximise sales and distribution.

The five-day course costs €1,500 with a 50pc discount available for students and those unemployed. A full course outline is available online.
