Apple has announced the creation of Europe's first iOS App Development Center in Italy, to give students practical skills and training on developing iOS apps.
The iOS App Development Center, to be located at a partner institution in Naples, will support teachers and provide a specialized curriculum preparing thousands of future developers to be part of Apple's developer community.
In addition, Apple will work with partners around Italy who deliver developer training to complement this curriculum and create additional opportunities for students.
Apple added that it expects to expand this program to other countries around the world.
"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," said Tim Cook, Apple's CEO. "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."
Apple says that in Italy, over 75,000 jobs are attributable to the App Store.
