The Developer Academy is a training center created in a partnership between the Centro de Informática of the Universidade Federal de Pernambuco (UFPE) and Apple. Our program proposes a world-class interdisciplinary training in iOS, watchOS, tvOS. The program recruits UFPE undergraduates from all areas. The project aims to enable its students to solve real problems through the use of technology, with particular emphasis on the iOS platform ecosystem.
We teach the Swift programming language at the academy to students of all areas. Students are also encouraged to learn the Objective-C language, Software Engineering practices, and other technologies necessary to make their solutions come to life.
The projects are based on the principles of the design thinking methodology. The students can explore the world, talk to people to understand their problems, and create a solution that fit their needs, providing a great user and visual experience.
Students will work on interdisciplinary teams and develop a business for their apps. On the Academy, they will learn how to define a business model, get user traction and pitch business and products to investors and a broader audience.
