ITCS 2500 - Introduction to Mobile Development

Credit Hours: 3.00


Prerequisites: ITCS 1140  or ITCS 1950  

ITCS 2500 provides students with a practical hands‑on introduction to mobile application development. Students will learn about the mobile development framework and the fundamental concepts of classes, objects, menus, lists, buttons, services, XML, messaging, debugging, life cycle events, and data storage. Students taking this class should have a good working knowledge of programming (loops and decision structures) and design (flowcharting and pseudo code).

Billable Contact Hours: 3
