Apple is one of the world’s largest tech companies. The company has renowned software such as OS X, Safari browser, iOS, and iTunes. In addition, it also has the App Store for the iOS ecosystem. Now the Cupertino has announced it will open an iOS App Development Center in Naples, Italy, which is its first-ever developer center in Europe.
The new developer center will provide training for iOS app development. The App Store’s expansion has provided a great platform for European developers, so it’s not surprising that Apple is now expanding app development centers to Europe.
Apple stated that the center would, “support teachers and provide a specialized curriculum preparing thousands of future developers to be part of Apple’s thriving developer community.”
Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook said, “Europe is home to some of the most creative developers in the world, and we’re thrilled to be helping the next generation of entrepreneurs in Italy get the skills they need for success. The phenomenal success of the App Store is one of the driving forces behind the more than 1.4 million jobs Apple has created in Europe and presents unlimited opportunities for people of all ages and businesses of all sizes across the continent.”
Some great apps have been developed in Europe. Among them is Quarami, a ticketing app that enables users to book requested services. The app’s developer, Roberto Macina stated, “Apple’s continued innovation inspires us to create the best mobile experiences and make our customers’ lives just a little bit easier. Apple’s app ecosystem is the anchor for our business, and developing across Apple’s operating systems has enabled us to easily and quickly bring the Qurami experience to iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch users.”
This is not the first app developer center established by Apple. The company first set up an app development center in Brazil. In addition to this, it is also committed to establishing more development centers across the world. So Apple’s new app development center in Italy could be a blueprint for further centers in Europe.
