Media release: Stevenson College Edinburgh hosts iPhone apps course

ON Thursday 18 and Friday 19 November, Stevenson College Edinburgh hosted a course in writing iPhone applications.

Approved by Apple and sponsored by Scotland’s Colleges, the course was delivered by iPhone apps expert, Gordon Eccleston, from Robert Gordon University.

Says a spokesperson: “The course was attended by 20 computing lecturers from across Scotland who have been given comprehensive classes covering all aspects of designing and programming applications for use on iPhones, iPads and iPods.

“Applications for Apple products represent a major growth market with over 300,000 applications available for download through the ‘App Store’ on Apple’s website. It is estimated that over seven billion downloads have been made from this site since it opened in July 2008.”

Computing lecturer at Stevenson, Debbie Meharg, said: “In today’s fast-moving computer market, it is vital for both students and professionals to be trained in the latest technological developments.

“At Stevenson, we are keenly aware of this and are very proud to be able to offer training like this.

“This class has been hugely successful and we look forward to hosting similar events in the future.”
