Practical Course: iPraktikum WS16/17
In this course (formerly known as iOS Praktikum) you develop a mobile application in the context of a larger system architecture. Depending on the project, you work with application servers, smart sensors such as iBeacons, intelligent clothing, wearables like the Apple Watch or micro-controllers such as the Raspberry Pi or the Intel Edison.
You get to know the background, tools and skills required to develop these applications. In particular, you learn Swift, Apple's new programming language. In addition to software engineering concepts like object oriented analysis and design, you learn key concepts of usability engineering and continuous delivery.
For this course, industry partners provide real problem statements. You get real team and project experience while using real data and working tightly together with a real client towards a real deadline.
