PARKERSBURG - West Virginia University at Parkersburg will offer a three-day Apps Academy this month for students wanting to learn how to develop applications for iPads.
The program will be offered June 18-20 and will run daily from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Workshop participants will work with Apple senior system engineer Rick Bettencourt as they engage in creative design and innovative app production, organize content into units for mobile app delivery and develop applications for the iPad.
"The academy will actually show attendees how to develop their own applications for the iPad through the development of scripts at the beginning level," said Rhonda Tracy, WVU-P senior vice president for academic affairs. "We are excited about the entrepreneurial aspects of this development activity as well as the opportunity to acquire new skills in technology."
Space is limited and the cost is $150 a person. Those wishing to take part in the class must register by no later than June 15. iPads will be provided to individuals who do not have their own. To register or for more information, call 1-304-424-8277 or email Deborah.firstname.lastname@example.org.
