iOS 11 & Swift 4
The curriculum for our Coding on the Beach bootcamp is developed by our team of app developers and UX designers and is based upon years of experience in the mobile app industry.
In this course, you will get a thorough introduction to the Swift language and Xcode.
If you want to quickly get up to speed on Apple’s iOS platform, this hands-on and project-based curriculum is the perfect one for you.
Note: No iOS, OS X, Objective-C or Swift knowledge is assumed.
Add value to your professional profile through our intensive training program:
Swift programming language
The powerful programming language that is also easy to learn.
Swift is a powerful and intuitive programming language for macOS, iOS, watchOS and tvOS. Writing Swift code is interactive and fun, the syntax is concise yet expressive, and Swift includes modern features developers love. Swift code is safe by design, yet also produces software that runs lightning-fast.
To develop iOS apps using the latest technologies, you need a MacBook running version 9 of Xcode. Xcode includes all the features you need to design, develop, and debug an app. Xcode also contains the iOS SDK, which extends Xcode to include the tools, compilers, and frameworks you need specifically for iOS development.
Companies today need people who solve issues. People who can create something. People who think in solutions and not in problems.
This working attitude is shaped during the bootcamp and will persist as a natural habit with our students.
During the Coding on the Beach bootcamp students build several mobile apps from scratch. They work in teams to produce various ‘proof of concepts’. These projects result in a great and professional looking app portfolio and helps landing your first gig.
Coding on the Beach offers a bootcamp away from everyday life. This is the perfect spot to immersify yourself and focus completely on obtaining new technical and professional skills.
Server-Side Swift with Kitura
Learn how to build on core Swift technologies and develop end-to-end applications in Swift with Kitura. Kitura is a new, modular, package-based and simple to use framework for building modern Swift applications. Create your app using Foundation APIs you already know, on MacOS and Linux.
Build more intelligent apps with machine learning.
Take advantage of Core ML a new foundational machine learning framework used across Apple products, including Siri, Camera, and QuickType. Core ML delivers blazingly fast performance with easy integration of machine learning models enabling you to build apps with intelligent new features using just a few lines of code.
iOS 11 introduces ARKit, a new framework that allows you to easily create unparalleled augmented reality experiences for iPhone and iPad. By blending digital objects and information with the environment around you, ARKit takes apps beyond the screen, freeing them to interact with the real world in entirely new ways.
After two months you will be able to work location independent for any projects that do not require you to travel back and forth to the same office every day.
Who knows, you might team with fellow students working on projects or even starting your own app development company?
Joining Coding on the Beach also means joining a world wide alumni community which connects you to international jobs, projects and new friendships.

Frequently Asked Questions
1. How many students are in each class?
Small class sizes result in more interaction between students and teachers. A low student to teacher ratio of 8:1 ensures that our students get the attention needed for project-based learning.
2. Are computers provided?
Coding on the Beach is a BYOL (bring your own laptop) course which means you have to bring your own Macbook along. This allows you to complete homework in the comfort of your own surroundings and continue learning beyond lessons in class.
3. Can't I just learn on my own?
Ultimately people are social learners, there is nothing that can substitute a classroom of students as eager to learn as you. It may take you years to learn something on your own without proper guidance. At Coding on the Beach we have industry experts that condense years of learning into a matter of weeks and provide resources to support you beyond graduation as well.
4. How do I secure my spot in the Bootcamp?
Your spot will be secured once you’ve completed the enrolment by sending us a signed and completed Course Agreement and after we have sent you a confirmation of enrolment including an invoice for the tuition via email.

8. Who is The App Academy?
Coding on the Beach is organised by The App Academy, the first mobile app developers academy in Europe offering bootcamp trainings in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Founded in 2013, The App Academy provides full-time iOS and Android app development bootcamps that cover all aspects of developing native mobile apps. Check The App Academy website for more information.
If you have a complaint about a Bootcamp (Training ‘On Open Enrolment’) organised by The App Academy you can address the board of directors of The App Academy. You can do so by post, email or telephone.
