iPhone Developer Summit - June New York City
With the iPhone more than earning its place in the consumer market, it is now being adopted by enterprises. In fact, many believe that the iPhone will be the most adopted enterprise device in 2009. But while developing for the iPhone and iPod touch is exciting, the amount of information and outstanding questions can be overwhelming at times.

Can an iPhone to provide context to RESTFUL web services? How can the various view controllers bundled with the iPhone SDK best be leveraged? What tools are currently available to help code perform as expected? Why (and how) are more and more business users are actively embracing the iPhone and bringing it into the enterprise?

These are among the dozens of questions to be asked and answered at the iPhone Developer Summit being held in New York City in June - an intensive and content-rich one-day program designed to satisfy the growing hunger among software developers and IT professionals for a broad spectrum of sessions informing developers what kinds of development options and opportunities the iPhone provides.

The Technical Chair of the event is Ian Thain, editor-in-chief of iPhone Developer's Journal.

In the one-day Summit, to be held June 22 at The Roosevelt Hotel in midtown Manhattan, developers will hear from industry experts about the impact the iPhone is having on delivery of rich content to mobile users. Technical sessions will explore a world of web development opportunities on the iPhone including building applications using the new ASP.NET MVC framework, building social applications, and developing high-quality, iPhone-style web-based GUIs for your applications. Additionally, more than a dozen expert faculty speakers will help delegates learn about issues such as when to use the iPhone SDK and when to develop web applications, and how Google's Android differs from the iPhone SDK and iPhone safari development?

Attending delegates will leave the iPhone Developer Summit with resources, ideas and examples they can apply immediately.

Topics to be covered in New York City will include the most timely aspects of iPhone development as well as iPhone applications, and the day's program will include sessions such as:

Getting Started Programming with Objective-C and the iPhone

Business users are actively embracing Apple’s iPhone and bringing it into the enterprise - both through the back door and the front door. iPhone developers have a significant opportunity to help businesses gain a competitive advantage by empowering workers with a true mobile office – secure email, mobilized business processes, and seamless access to back-end enterprise systems. In order to achieve this vision and help companies truly realize the power of the iPhone in the enterprise, a mobile infrastructure is needed that enables enterprises to move away from single ‘one-off’ applications to a more strategic mobile platform.

Combining REST and Context for Killer iPhone Apps
Jason Christensen

With the advent of the multimodal nature of iPhone, it's possible to be connected anywhere and everywhere. But did you know that it's possible for your iPhone to provide context to RESTFUL web services  to create the next generation of killer applications. We will look at using web services, cloud computing, and the sensors on the iPhone to create applications that exceed what could previously be done on mobile devices. With this architecture, the sky is truly the limit on the capabilities you can provide to the users of your application. We will create an application that can use RESTFUL web services in combination with the GPS sensor on the iPhone to create a context-aware chat client. 

Speaker Bio: Jason Christensen has over 15 years of industry experience providing technical direction in some of the world's largest companies. He regularly speaks at conferences regarding the use of advanced technology, and has worked as a technologist, lead-architect, and developer on high-profile, cutting edge projects throughout his career.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic • Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it’s a mix of architectural style...
