Stanford Podcast Teaches iPhone App DevelopmentApr 2nd, 2009 | By Elisabeth Lewin | Category: Educational Podcasts, iPhone, Podcast Quickies, Podcasting, Video Podcasts
Official, for-credit enrollment in the class is limited, but the public may “audit” the class via podcast for free. Required “school supplies” for the class include an Intel-powered Mac, and optional-but-recommended supplies would be an iPhone.
The ten-week podcast series will publish the class lectures on developing for the iPhone and iPod touch within a couple days of the each class meeting.
The Apple Insider’s Prince McLean says of the development class (and its podcast):
“Last summer, Sanford’s announcement that it would begin offering an iPhone development course raised eyebrows among pundits who were busy worrying that Apple would use its iPhone development NDA [non-disclosure agreement] to stop the classes. Instead, Apple assisted Stanford, relaxed its NDA terms, and is now working help the school reach an even broader audience.”
