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.
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
Developing for the iPhone and iPod touch is exciting and the amount of information can be overwhelming at times. Objective-C is a simple superset of C and XCode is powerful and comprehensive. Cocoa Touch frameworks are new but based on mature elegant technology with roots in Mac OS X and NextStep. Well talk about tips and strategies to best learn your way around Objective-C, Cocoa Touch and the XCode development tools.
Speaker Bio: Julio Barros has been developing iPhone software since the SDK was released, and has been involved with a variety of projects for the iPhone. Prior to focusing on the iPhone, he worked on commercial software projects for almost 20 years in Colorado, New York, and Washington DC. He is a consultant, freelance programmer and trainer.
Break The Mold - iPhone for the Mobile Enterprise
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.
Speaker Bio: Senthil Krishnapillai is director of product management at Sybase iAnywhere. Senthil's mobile communications group, part of the Information Anywhere suite, is responsible for the designing and bringing future generation of Mobile collaboration products to the market.

He is a member of various consortia including OMA-DS and CTIA.
Combining REST and Context for Killer iPhone Apps
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. He has been working on mobile, and mobile context-aware computing threads since 2004 and has developed on J2ME, Maemo, and iPhone platforms.
Mastering View Controllers
In this session we take a detailed look at best practices for leveraging the various view controllers bundled with the iPhone SDK. We start off with a quick review of the critical role view controllers play in the development of iPhone applications then dive into best practices for integrating multiple different types of view controllers together to support specific application needs.
Speaker Bio: Ernie Svehla, Chief Architect of IntelliObjects Inc., has been developing iPhone applications for the health care industry since the SDK's release. He has over 20 years experience in developing software products most recently in the web and mobile space..
