When it comes to making iPhone apps, everyone has to start somewhere.
More often than not learning a new skill is a challenge and this is never more true than when that new skill is learning a new language, be it French, Italian or, in this case, Lua.
Corona lets us use Lua to create iPhone apps, it’s a magical thing.
As you likely know already if you’ve come across this page, the official Apple SDK relies on Objective C, which I, (like many others,) have found almost impossible to learn unless you are willing to dedicate months upon months to it, only to be able to make the most basic of iPhone applications.
Many new developers find Ansca’s Corona SDK is a great tool to use; this is because not only is it something that you can pick up with zero prior coding experience but also because it is powerful enough to make almost any app you can imagine. (For the iPhone, iPad or even for Android devices!)
You can start learning about Lua and Corona by yourself using tutorials (I have a lot of good ones up, all free) and reading through the sample code available in the Corona program folder, or you can fast track your learning experience by having some private training sessions with me.
What I Offer
I can provide you with one on one training to get you from the “What’s Lua? How do I use Corona” stage to the point you have a solid understanding of all the basics and everything you need to know to make your own app in a very short period of time. (I can’t offer an exact time frame, it really depends on the individual.)
