Looking for this year's event? Check out the 2015 RIT iOS App Challenge.
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.
$8,391 in prizes
13" MacBook Air 256GB for each team member (up to 3)
128GB iPad Air (Wi-Fi) for each team member (up to 3)
128GB iPad Mini with Retina display (Wi-Fi) for each team member (up to 3)
