Workshop Description

This workshop from RailsBridge Hawaii and members of HICapacity is intended to reach out to women who are interested in learning iOS Development. Men are welcome to come if you find a woman who wants to learn and come together. Our events focus on increasing diversity in tech, so that people of all backgrounds can feel welcome and comfortable in our industry.

To take part in this workshop, you will need:

1) to bring a Mac computer running OSX 10.9.3 or later or later (needed for X-Code 6).

Do your best to do the following before Saturday morning.

2) Download X-Code 6 Here you will be asked to create an Apple Developer account (you only need the free version, if you already have an Apple ID, you can sign in with this)

3) Download Cocoapods
Note: If you are downloading CocoaPods using the “stock” Ruby on your computer (meaning you haven't downloaded a different version of Ruby on your computer), then from terminal you should run:
sudo gem install cocoapods

If you are running “rvm” (maybe because you went to a RailsBridge event and installed this version), then from your terminal you should run:
gem install cocoapods

Unsure which version of ruby are running? Type ruby -v into your terminal, press enter and then which ruby and press enter again.

In this workshop, we'll take you through building a complete iPhone application using Objective-C and X-Code. At the end of the day, you will have developed an application on the internet that connects to a database and reads and writes information.
