Senior vice president of Apple Retail, Angela Ahrendts, today tweeted out an announcement for a new "Today at Apple" session focused on app prototyping for aspiring developers. News of the session arrives as Apple's annual Worldwide Developers Conference comes to an end today, after first kicking off with a keynote in San Jose, California on Monday.
Ahrendts describes the new program as a way to help app makers get started with prototyping, which she describes as "one of the most important steps of the design process." The session itself is based on a popular talk from WWDC, and events for the prototyping lessons will begin at Apple retail locations later in June.

You can find Today at Apple sessions near you by visiting the company's website, although it appears to be too early for the new prototyping sessions to be listed.

Other comments blame her for the features of the iPhone X, which she likely had zero input on (it's not her area), and suggest that she doesn't know how to code (based on what, that she's a woman? that she's blonde? you don't appear to have much other information to work from) - neither you nor I have any idea whether or not she knows how to code, and knowing how to code isn't necessary in order to simply understand that knowing how to code is a useful skill (I don't know how to do brain surgery, but I'm quite aware that it's an extremely useful skill).
Her part in this is, she oversees Apple's stores, and she's announcing classes at Apple's stores - that seems infinitely reasonable: she's not going to teach the classes, she's arranging for them to be taught at Apple stores.
Way to go, MacRumors Forum Mob, your work here is done.
