App Development Course Melbourne

Learn to code anything! I’m putting together a 12-week course and my aim is to teach you how to stand on your own, and be able to create anything you can imagine after going through the 12 classes.

Everything will be approached from a 100% practical point of view – the only requirement is that you bring in your own laptop.

Quick intro about myself, I’ve been a Software Developer since the early 2000s, mainly working with clients in eCommerce. Now I run my own business, serving clients world-wide.

The language in focus will be… JavaScript! Why? Because JavaScript is the most versatile language there is today for the web and apps. Every website you come across will have some kind of JavaScript running on it and not only that, you can use JavaScript to create mobile apps, servers and IoT devices. Even NASA has been known to use JavaScript.

Meteor will be the framework of choice. It’s an isomorphic, JavaScript based framework – isomorphic means you write the same code on the client-side as well as the server-side. And once you write code in Meteor, the same code can be used on a website or a mobile app. I truely believe it is the best and fastest way to create what you want to create. The code will be compatible for both iOS and Android.

At the end of the course, you will have yourself a web app or a mobile app (or both) built on top of your idea. And you will understand how to continue developing it at your own pace, in your own time.

Here is the course outline:
