Discontinued Program: iOS App Developer

The following update is for partners that offer the iOS App Developer program in their catalog.

Due to a few recent changes in the industry, ed2go is removing the iOS App Developer program from the catalog until it can be updated to ensure that students are receiving the best possible training experience. Students who are interested in application development may consider the Android App Developer program or the Web Applications Developer program. Both courses provide a great foundation for a career in software development.

Students enrolling in the Android App Developer program will learn application development on the Android operating system (which covers about 88% of the global smartphone market) and can lead to many job opportunities. Students enrolling in the Web Applications Developer program will learn marketable skills they can include on their resume such as HTML5, CSS, JavaScript, SQL, PHP, XML, and Ajax.

 The iOS App Developer program will be removed from the catalog effective 6/30/17.
