Apple Developer Academy 2019
Since the academy first opened in 2016, almost 1,000 students have been trained.
The Academy is looking to attract a broad mix of students interested in careers in the app economy. With a strong emphasis on collaboration, students get extensive hands-on experience, learning coding and software development skills, as well as attending courses designed to boost knowledge and confidence around the creation of startups and app design. More than 400 app ideas have been developed by Academy students. Hear Me Well (an App that turns the iPhone into a hearing aid device), is one of over 50 apps already available on the App Store.

- Monday, July 1: Paris
- Wednesday, July 3: London
- Friday, July 5: Munich
The final stage in the process is an interview in one of four cities: London, Munich, Naples, or Paris.
