I was an iOS instructor at Flatiron School from May, 2015 to May, 2016 and then again from September, 2016 to December, 2016. In the last month of this program, students enter into project mode. They are placed in teams of 4 and are given one month to put together an iOS app, doing their best to get it in the app store.
I would perform daily standups with every team, help manage their expecations, debug & review their code, delegate tasks, and most importantly make sure the student is having fun.
These are some of the apps available in the app store made by these students as a result of project mode.
