The Apple Developer Academy has published the call for the selection of new students. Almost 400 places are available for future developers and entrepreneurs who want to participate in the free one-year course that helps participants acquire practical skills and training on how to develop apps for the world’s most vibrant app ecosystem. The course has been specially designed by Apple training experts, and all students will be equipped with the hardware and software needed for their studies, including iPhone and Mac.
Since the Academy opened in 2016, nearly 1,000 students have been trained. Students from Italy as well as from around the world are welcome to take part in the new call. The current course includes students from 30 different countries including Austria, Belgium, France, Finland, Germany, Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Switzerland and the UK. 35 Academy students have just been selected to attend Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference in California in June, where the world’s most creative developer community will meet with Apple teams to learn about the latest news on Apple platforms.
The Academy aims to attract a broad mix of students interested in working in the app economy. With a strong emphasis on collaboration, students gain extensive hands-on experience, coding and software development skills, as well as courses designed to gain knowledge and confidence about startup creation and app design. Over 400 app ideas have been developed by Academy students. Hear Me Well (an app that turns your iPhone into a hearing aid) is one of over 50 apps already available in the App Store.
Students also have the opportunity to participate in an “Enterprise Track”, which provides in-depth training over the entire lifecycle of an app, from design to implementation, cloud usage, security, troubleshooting and data storage.
The Apple Developer Academy aims to help future developers reach their potential and is part of Apple’s ongoing commitment to making coding accessible to all. In 2016, Apple launched Everyone Can Code, a comprehensive program and curriculum to help students learn how to code to create opportunities and prepare them for the world of work. Hundreds of educational institutions in Europe are adopting the Apple Everyone Can Code with Swift program.
Tests in international fora will take place: Monday, July 1 in Paris, Wednesday, July 3 in London, Friday, July 5 in Munich.
