Big Nerd Ranch today announced the Objective-C Mini-Bootcamp, which takes place February 11-12, 2006 in Atlanta, GA. “If you are not a programmer, but would like to write applications for Mac OS X, this is the way to start. Stay for two days, and go home an Objective-C programmer. Stay for five more days, and go home ready to write full-featured Cocoa applications.” The instructor for the class, Steve Kochan, is the author and co-author of several bestselling books on the C language, including: Programming in C, Programming in ANSI C, and Topics in C Programming. The Objective C Mini-Bootcamp can be taken on its own for US$1,000 or can be taken in conjunction with the Cocoa Bootcamp that runs February 13-17 for a combined discounted cost of $4,300.
