Course Description

CodePath’s iOS Mobile Development course is a ten-weeks long project-based exploration into iOS mobile app development, focusing on the design and implementation of RESTful API clients. College students from computer science or software-related majors are welcome.

Classes meet every Saturday mornings for lab and working sessions. Students strengthen their technical skills by completing coding labs and building three fully functional app assignment projects using the APIs of popular apps like Tumblr, Yelp and Twitter.

During the second half of the course, students will participate in a group project and apply everything they've learned into conceptualizing, designing, and architecting their own functioning mobile apps from scratch. Teams will be given the chance to present their apps at CodePath's Demo Day and receive feedback from professional software engineers.

Past judges and alumni have included Steve Huffman (Reddit CEO & Co-Founder), Alan McConnell (Head of Live Engineering at Instagram), Tina Schuchman (Director of Engineering at Facebook), and other industry leaders

Many of our students have shipped their iOS apps to the Apple app store, launched their own start-ups, or built their own portfolios to show employers.

Hear from Our Alums

My experience at CodePath was by far the most significant experience I’ve had in college. Before CodePath I had no idea what I wanted to do with tech I just knew I wanted to be in it. The future was still very hazy and I was getting anxiety because I was worried I wasn’t going to succeed despite being at a great university. After CodePath, I continued working on my final project for that class and applied to be part of The Basement at UCSD’s summer incubator program where I evolved my project into a startup. I have never been more confident in what I want to do now, and it’s all thanks to CodePath.

I got a first hand view of what software engineering and app development looked like. CodePath’s iOS course gave us the tools needed to create an app, from the design and planning stages to the actual implementation of the app. I am grateful for the learning opportunity given to me and hope to apply those skills as an engineer.


Morgan State University

The CodePath iOS course was structured in a way that facilitates learning while providing the support needed. Concepts covered in the course are mostly fundamental to iOS development and were frequently employed in iOS apps. Overall, it is a valuable learning experience in which you can learn through hand-on activities.

CodePath is everything I wished normal school would be. The course provided great instruction with enough ambiguity to make you work hard for yourself.
