Big Nerd Ranch was founded by Aaron Hillegass, whose lifelong interest in programming was honed at NeXT, where he was a developer and trainer. Later, Aaron delivered Cocoa and WebObjects training for Apple. He used this expertise and the training approach developed over time to found Big Nerd Ranch in 2001.
Since then, we’ve brought our deep expertise to app development consulting and training. We’ve been leaders in iOS and Cocoa programming from the beginning, and today we offer a variety of services from our headquarters in Atlanta.
