Simplilearn, global provider of online training and professional certification courses, today announced the launch of its Apple Watch Application Development course. Intended for both aspiring and professional developers, the course is designed to equip individuals with the knowledge and skills to develop any iWatch app they can dream up and aim to create. Additionally, the course will be available free of charge through December 10, 2015 to anyone eager to dive in and learn how to create leading Apple Watch apps, and increase his or her understanding of fundamental smartwatch and wearable technologies.
By 2018, the global wearable device market value is estimated to reach $12.6 billion, which has an implicit effect on the need for wearable device and app development skills. Simplilearn’s 16-hour online self-learning course provides developers with hands-on experience to master the concepts of today’s innovative watch application development, and an opportunity to create nine real-world Apple apps along the way with Swift 2, Xcode IDE, Watch Kit, and Watch Connectivity in iOS9. Inclusive of the course, developers can build popular everyday apps like Watch Calculator, Daily Quote, News Reader XML, Speed Reader, Memory Master, What If?, Camper’s Watch, Lucky Numbers, and Random Cuteness. Additionally, developers will learn application programming interfaces, and how to add video, images, maps, locations, glances, notifications and menus to apps.
“With the Apple Watch opening the door to an entirely new ecosystem of apps, it’s essential for anyone with interest in app development to not only understand the basics of how to create them, but create them well,” said Ankur Arora, Head of Category, Simplilearn. “It’s always been our goal to offer the most up-to-date short-term certification courses in the latest groundbreaking technologies. Through the iWatch course our instructors won’t simply walk students through lessons but challenge them to create real-world apps along the way. We’re confident that it will provide developers around the world the opportunity to experiment and hone new-gen skills to be successful in the app development arena.”
No prerequisites are required to take the Apple Watch course, and it is not limited to any one level of developers. Installation of Xcode 7, Watch Kit and iOS9 are required for course participation, and are all free to download. Apple Mac computers are not necessary. Upon training program completion, individuals not only receive a certification for Apple Watch application development, but a professional smartwatch app portfolio, and the ability to successfully build their own iWatch apps.
