IOS developer course for Windows user

Hi! Is the IOS development techdegree course for students with Mac Computers only? I'm worried that the tools used in the course cannot run on Windows and I don't have a Mac computer right now.

Unfortunately yes. There is a way you can spin up a virtual instance of MAC OS on a Windows machine but it requires a copy of the image.

There are a few companies where you can hire a MAC in the Cloud, but I'm not sure of the cost of this on a long term basis.

Why don't you look at a refurb? You wont need the latest and greatest MAC Pro. I'm using a Macbook Pro from 2010 and its fine.

Hope this helps.
