Looking for practical, hands-on training on iPhone development taught onsite at your organization? Look no further! These courses are personally developed and taught by leading iPhone developer and instructor Jason Fieldman. No contract instructor regurgitating someone else's materials! Jason was the lead iPhone developer for a Silicon Valley startup, did iPhone consulting for several California companies, and was the course designer and instructor of the iPhone programming course in the Stanford University part-time program.

If you have a group of at least eight interested developers (10 for courses outside the US or Canada), contact coreservlets.com to arrange a course at your location. Onsite courses are easier administratively, are better for clients since the topics and pace can be customized, are more cost effective for students since no travel is required, and are more convenient (for companies in the Baltimore/Washington area) because the schedule is flexible (e.g. afternoons or evenings instead of n consecutive days). However, if you have too few developers for an onsite course, check out our upcoming iPhone programming course in Maryland (co-sponsored by the Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals program).
