Big Nerd Ranch Announces March 2004 Training

Atlanta, GA – February 27, 2004 – Batter Up for Spring Training: Big
Nerd Ranch Announces Cocoa Bootcamp on Panther/XCode in March 2004.

Big Nerd Ranch announces the return of its popular Cocoa Bootcamp training
class for March 22-26, 2004. This course, one of the most well attended
classes offered by the Big Nerd Ranch, was revised in the fall of November
2003 to incorporate XCode IDE and the new bindings mechanism featured in
the Panther release of Mac OS X. The enhanced course, instructed by Big
Nerd Ranch founder Aaron Hillegass, is targeted to provide Mac programmers
with the skills they need to master the emerging technology of XCode.

“I spent a week at Big Nerd Ranch. An amazing amount of material, crammed
into way too little time. Yet somehow it all worked. I came away
remembering much of what was taught, but more importantly, I had enough
resource material to recreate anything.”

– Dave Mark

January 2004 Cocoa Bootcamp

The course lives up to its name by providing intensive training to assist
students in writing complex applications for Mac OS X and mastering
Interface Builder, frameworks and design patterns used in Cocoa. Students
attending the March class will receive the edited draft of the second
edition of Hillegass’s “Cocoa Programming for Mac OS X.”
