Apple in collaboration with Michigan State University (MSU) has announced the opening of its first Developer Academy in Detroit to 100 students aged 18 to 60 for a 10-month "comprehensive app development and entrepreneurial training" program,
Apple made the announcement in a newsroom post on Friday. The bespoke venue for the training is located in the First National Building in downtown Detroit.
Apple noted that enrollment is free and that students don't need any previous coding experience. "Students in this year's class bring a breadth of personal, professional and academic experience to the program," it said.
The Academy is designed to run two courses. The first is a 30-day introductory program, and the main, 10-month course teaches iOS app development and associated fields, such as design and marketing.
