ValleyRocket.com Announces a New iPhone and iPad App Development Initiative Offering Summer Internships to Local High School Students(June 30, 2012)
Greenville, SC (PRWEB) June 30, 2012
ValleyRocket.com interns will benefit from working in a company atmosphere, where they will be given deadlines and get to work on actual projects such as the Daily Commute iPhone App, not just basic housekeeping tasks. Daily Commute is built for the iPhone allowing commuters to gather statistical information about their commutes and arrive to work on time. The interns will learn all aspects of the development process, and will be trained in mobile app and web development.
The internship work will directly contribute updates to apps already launched such as the Alpha Calc iPhone Calculator App. The interns in this program will gain a new perspective on what it takes to build or update software applications in a team environment where code is written and shared amongst other members. This is not quite as easy as one person writing a small application by themselves and submitting it to the App Store. Merging code and communicating with the team can be a very difficult task. By working together the interns will gain a new perspective on how to accomplish these tasks and successfully build mobile applications for the general public to use.
The internship program is in place to offer a unique opportunity to train the next generation of software and mobile app developers. ValleyRocket.com believes that the next big idea is out there waiting to be discovered, perhaps by a teenager who was given the chance to be inspired. By allowing young minds to be creative and express their ideas, these internships provide a platform for growth and innovation.
ValleyRocket.com was founded on the premise of having fun while building quality mobile applications. Company President and co-founder, Bobby Wilson, says that The key to our success is working with positive people who love what they do.
Launched in 2011, and almost one year old, ValleyRocket.com has positioned itself in the world of mobile app development with success in an extremely competitive market. What sets it apart from similar companies is the vision of hiring quality interns, who learn and grow with the company. They get an opportunity to learn the business side of company operations, while enhancing their skills as programmers.
