About the Course:
Handheld systems, such as smartphones and tablets are now the most common way for people to access and interact with computing services.
The demand for application development skills is therefore growing at a breathtaking pace. These skills, however, are multi-faceted, requiring students to master computer science and engineering principles, to learn the details of specific mobile application platforms, and to design artistic and engaging user interfaces that respond to how, where and why handheld applications are used.
This course will cover the fundamental programming principles, software architecture and user experience considerations underlying handheld software applications and their development environments.
Classes will commence from 21st January 2014.
