Atlanta, GA – August 23, 2002 – The Big Nerd Ranch announces a new class –
Core Mac OS X Programming. Following the success of Big Nerd Ranch Cocoa
training, a class is now available for programmers interested in taking the

power of Mac OS X’s Unix foundation.

For the week of November 11-15, 2002, Aaron Hillegass, Cocoa instructor and
author of “Cocoa Programming for Mac OS X,” is teaming up with Mark
Dalrymple to teach the new class. As with Cocoa classes, the Big Nerd Ranch
intensive training methods will guide students’ progress. Mark Dalrymple
joins the Big Nerd Ranch after 17 years as a Macintosh programmer and 12
