The program will provide students with practical skills and experience to help turn their app ideas into reality and bring them to market on the App Store. The successful applicants hail from 11 different regions across Italy and include students from Latvia, Germany and the Netherlands. In total, 200 students will join the center during this academic year. Next year, the academy plans to double in capacity to 400 students.
Apple is also announcing the addition of a new iOS Foundation Program in the Campania region of Italy that will collaborate with at least five additional universities. The new program will offer students three- to four-week courses on app design for iOS, and is expected to benefit over 800 students in the first year alone.
During the iOS Developer Academy’s first semester, courses will enhance and improve students’ software development skills on iOS. During the year, students will attend courses on the creation of startups and app design, and collaborate on the creation of apps which can be submitted to the App Store.
