2016 has been an important year for Apple’s iOS app developer academy as it expands around the world with centers in Italy, Brazil, India, and Indonesia.
Apple’s academies will provide a specialized curriculum preparing thousands of future developers to be part of Apple’s thriving developer community. The company will also work with local partners to develop training opportunities to complement Apple’s own curriculum and create additional opportunities for students.
Announcing its second-ever app developer academy in Naples, Italy — the first in Europe — Apple’s CEO Tim Cook said the company expects to bring the program to other countries around the world.
