Learn Objective-C and make an iOS App in less than a week then present it to the RIT community while competing for awesome prizes.

If you're interested in learning Objective-C or improving your existing knowledge, this is the coding competition for you.  We're planning training sessions to provide you with a crash course to learn the language and Xcode.  We'll have Apple engineers on-site in the evenings for office hours if you get stuck or have technical questions.  This is also an awesome opportunity for you to add a project to your resume and then get your resume reviewed by an Apple recruiter.  The top team will win a MacBook Air for each member of the team.

If you don't want to participate but instead just want to watch the final demos and awards ceremony, reserve a ticket.
