|Ask HN: Can anyone really learn iOS in 8 weeks?|

|People continue to be in disbelief when I tell them we took five amazing people who have little to no experience with code and helped them become employable iOS developers in 8 weeks during our pilot program this past fall at the Mobile Makers Academy (http://mobilemakers.co)|
I've had this conversation with so many people and the feedback is typically "iOS is so much harder than Ruby on Rails, you need more than 8 weeks". I'm assuming this comes from the lack of experience with compiled languages, memory management, etc.
What are your thoughts on being able to learn iOS in 8 weeks and becoming a jr. developer? Is it possible?
