These days it seems that everyone wants to develop for the smartphone generation. And that’s a smart plan considering how integrated smart phones have become in our lives. We can check the weather, order baseball tickets, find the stadium, and listen to the best announcers play-by-play at the stadium while ordering another brewsky with our phone- and that’s just for starters.
So, who needs an app? Any company that would like customers. Or anyone who has a fun idea for a game. Or anyone with a useful idea for our lives. One little teeny tiny problem: who can develop it? At Zimmdot, we have a couple really great iOS developers and they are booked continually. (If you are looking to make the next great game, we do contracting- so call us! We are currently booking for September development).
We’d love to build our staff up, but can’t find too much great talent out there for iOS. Most of our friends in the software, gaming, and entertainment fields feel the same way. I bet you are looking for someone who knows iOS or wishing you knew iOS well enough to jump into this growing market. Well, friend, you are in luck!
This summer, Zimmdot is hosting several classes for professional development, including 3 mobile development classes, 2 Unreal Engine classes, and one class for graduating seniors looking to get hired.
Register today for these great classes. All are reasonably priced, and include extensive resources. Classes are 3 weeks long and will provide a solid foundation of knowledge.
Are you looking for work in one of these areas? We promise to teach you everything you know, and at the end of the class, we’ll put you in touch with our many friends in the industry looking to hire.
Want to work for Tripwire or Hi-rez, two of the premier gaming studios in Atlanta? They both use the Unreal Engine and both are hiring. Take the UE3 Art class, taught by Tripwire’s own senior art director, David Hensley! Or take the UE3 programming class taught by Zimmdot’s own Dayle Flowers.
Or perhaps you are looking to build business friendly apps with The Weather Channel? Better know iOS inside and out- take our Advanced iOS classes!
If you are just graduating, it will be hard to get a foot in the door with companies who have their choice of experience programmers. A friend of mine recently told me “if I have to teach another intern SVN, I am going to put my head through a wall!” (Oof) But take the Zimmdot’s Agile development class, and you will have a leg up on your classmates. Plus with Zimmdot acting as your recruiter, we will be able to put you in touch with our contacts all over Atlanta. Big companies, small companies, gaming companies, entertainment companies, there’s a lot of openings out there.
I promise you won’t be disappointed!
We're a new studio based in Atlanta, Georgia. Our team has a passion for programming. We want things done right, the first time, and every time.
Come along for the wild ride! We'll share all our tips and tricks, successes and failures, all that we learn from bootstrapping, every Tuesday and Thursday.
Bootstrapping: "To promote and develop by use of one's own initiative and work without reliance on outside help" (from Dictionary.com)
