In May Patently Apple posted a report titled "Detroit's First National Building will House Apple's Developer Academy." Today, Apple revealed that the inaugural class of developers and entrepreneurs were welcomed to its Apple Developer Academy in Detroit this week.


The academy, which is Apple’s first in the US, will help prepare its students for jobs in the thriving iOS app economy. In addition to the fundamentals of coding, academy participants will learn design, marketing, project management, and more — with an emphasis on inclusivity and making a positive impact in their communities.


Lisa Jackson, Apple’s vice president of Environment, Policy, and Social Initiatives: "We believe apps for everyone should be designed by everyone, and that all aspiring developers and entrepreneurs should have the opportunity to be a part of the thriving app economy. Detroit has an incredible entrepreneurial spirit, powered by creativity and inclusion, and we’re thrilled to welcome this inaugural class of creators as we start classes at the Apple Developer Academy, the first of its kind in the US. Through the power of technology and innovation, we are proud to be helping prepare these innovators for new opportunities."
