Portable Homes in Chicago

Portable Homes in Chicago
Event on 2014-01-18 19:00:00

Attention: People With Body Parts, a body-positive collective based in Central Europe. Our project Portable Homes involves collaboration with survivors of domestic violence and intersecting communities of those who experience political violence and embody histories of occupation and uprootedness. Through book-making, dance, workshops, and other collaborative art projects, Attention: People With Body Parts works to increase the accessibility of control of borders and boundaries, celebration, and space for connection to and from body parts. 

To make our Portable Homes project in solidarity with survivors more accessible, we will have a 14-city tour crossways the United Says and Canada in Jan 2014. Our tour consists of writing and movement workshops in partnership with grassroots organizations at apiece of our tour stops. All of these designated safe-spaces work with communities of survivors, ranging from centers for kids who have incarcerated parents to rape crisis centers to transition homes for domestic violence survivors.

Part of the mission is to give life to the letters and issues that contributors address. Our tour will feature night-time performances with spoken word, contact improvisation dance, and media and visual art from the writers of our upcoming book. This portion of the tour gives survivors dominance over how their bodies enter the public space in choosing how to having their pieces represented within a performance space. This form of control and party of body parts showcases the many ways in which survivors can move forward and into a body that feels a tiny more like home.

Here's the scoop for Chicago! 

Workshops: 1/18 from 1-3pm @ The Awakening Center and Gallery
**Free and for survivors and folks in solidarity with survivors. 
**All participants will have guaranteed access and opportunities for participation in our performances

Performance: 1/18 from 7-9pm @ The Ribcage 
3036 N. Lincoln Ave # 3B 
**Doors open at 6:30

Chicago iPhone/iPad Boot Camp – Certificate 3 Day Intensive Introduction to IOS 6 Workshop

Chicago iPhone/iPad Boot Camp – Certificate 3 Day Intensive Introduction to IOS 6 Workshop
Event on 2013-03-22 10:00:00

Read the Blog Posting about the iPhone Boot Camp Experience

If you want to develop apps on the iphone you need this intensive workshop. Don't try this on your own, unless you have a couple of months to spare ” —Craeg K Strong – lead developer, Arielpartners.com 

iPhone Boot Camp Featured on Chicago NBC News

The training was worth each penny spent, each minute attended, and each mile driven (400 miles total).  I was very happy with Arek.  He did a great job.  He's very knowledgable with  good presentation and training skills.  I'll be interested in advanced sessions in the future, please keep me posted – Mazen Neffakh,  attended March 2011 Chicago iPhone Boot Camp

“If you want to develop apps on the iphone you need this course. Don't try this on your own, unless you have a couple of months to spare ” —Craeg K Strong – lead developer, Arielpartners.com, attended Jan 2009

The opportunities for iPhone applications developers has never been better. Apple has paid out over 5 billion dollars to developers with App in the iPhone app store. iPhone developers' work-for-hire is the highest paid in the software industry.

The iPhone Boot Camps are arguably the most inexpensive and experienced iPhone application development workshops. Our rates are often half the price of other workshops and our trainers the most experienced in the field, with apps in the top ten in the iPhone store and/or authors of favourite books on iPhone development.

Since 2008 we have trained over 1,000 developers in over sixty workshops in the United States, Canada, Australia and the UK . The training range from on-site training sessions for Fortune 500 companies such as IBM, General Motors, Bank of USA and 3 and 6 day intensive workshops for developers enrolled from companies and independent software developers.

We are the only iPhone training to offer advanced workshops and a full money back guarantee after the first day of the workshop if you are not absolutely satisfied with the training – no questions asked. Keep in mind that if you do not have a basic understanding of Object Oriented Programming (OOP) the workshop will be extremely challenging.

We specialize only in iPhone application development training. No other iPhone workshop has trained as many developers and we've learned a great deal from all our training sessions. Our workshop use proven course materials developed and tested over time and we instruct the latest versions of the SDK/Xcode – currently IOS 6. The workshops are all hands small workshops with one-on-one hands on instruction under the supervision of the trainer. 

At the conclusion of the workshop we offer an industry recognized certificate and membership in our vast network of iPhone Boot Camp alumni to further advance your career in iPhone development, including job postings from our alumni and other companies. Frequently after the workshops developers follow up their training with the trainers and partner on developing apps and if we have space acquirable in our other workshops we offer you the opportunity to take the workshop over at no additional cost. 

Our mission is to train you to develop iPhone apps on your own and most developers are healthy to so after completing the training. In fact iPhone Boot Camp alumni now have apps in the top ten in the Apple store with millions of downloads.

Developers only include trainers Eddie Marks and saint Anthony (co-founders Inedible Software, developers of the ideal selling game "Shotgun"), Ben Sgro (senior software engineer and development manager, Elephant Ventures) , Charles Gamble (founder, Percula Software) and Oz Michaeli (co-founder, Spiralstormgames.com)

What should I bring with me?

  • An Intel Macintosh laptop computer
  • Latest version of XCode and the iPhone SDK installed on your Macintosh laptop
  • An iPhone or iPod Touch, if you have one (optional)
  • Basic programming knowledge, including object-oriented programming experience, such as Java,, NET, C,  Visual Studio

Why take a workshop when I can read books, attend a lecture watch videos and webinars?

Most people, even those with extensive experience in programming, find the SDK difficult to master. Books and video are great to prepare for a workshop but there  is still no substitute for a small hands on workshop with other developer, where you can ask questions to an experienced teacher looking over your shoulder as you go through the episodes step by step. Basically it saves you month of time and money.
