Event: Developing applications for iPhone, iPad and other iOS devices

There is an upcoming event in Edinburgh on the 9th March at 18:30 on the topic of “Developing Applications for iPhone, iPad and other iOS devices”

An introduction to iPhone development for beginners or those who are casually interested and want a leg up the learning curve

The iPhone, iPad and their iOS relatives are becoming an increasingly popular and important platform. More and more developers are looking into what the platform can offer and how to harness its power for
their products.

In this presentation, an experienced iOS developer provides a boot-strap in iPhone development. The talk is an overview of how to get started as an iPhone developer. You will gain an understanding of the platform, the tools, and the core technologies, including:

  • The main languages: Objective C/C++
  • Using the Xcode IDE, and various deployment/testing tools
  • Common iPhone/Mac OS design patterns, idioms, and practices
  • Becoming a native: how to "think in iPhone"
  • An overview of the libraries and facilities that exist
  • Limitations of the development environment.

We’ll see the pros and cons of iPhone development. You will leave with an understanding of how to deploy your applications on the device, and whether it is the right platform for you to target
