  • Introduction to iPhone Game Development Using Cocos2d Framework

    by Mohammad Azam

    In this session Mohammad Azam will introduce the Cocos2d framework for iPhone game development. The session will cover the basics of Cocos2d Framework which includes actions, particle effects, animation etc. By the end of this session you should be able to make a simple game for iPhone. This is a highly code intensive session with minimal slides. Enjoy!

    At 9:15am to 10:30am, Saturday 20th August

  • Concurrent and Asynchronous Programming with GCD on Mac OS X and iOS

    by Nathan Eror

    Multicore has officially come to iOS devices, and taking advantage of those cores in your apps is simpler than you might think. Concurrent programming is never easy, but GCD makes it a whole lot easier. In this session, you will learn the ins and outs of GCD and how to use it to effectively. We will cover topics like:

    • Concurrent and serial queues
    • Creating your own queues
    • Synchronizing access to shared memory without locks
    • Using semaphores to keep execution under control
    • Using dispatch sources for asynchronous data access
    • Using Instruments to profile and optimize your concurrent and asynchronous code

    At 1:15pm to 2:30pm, Saturday 20th August

  • Building Fun and Touchable Interfaces for the iPhone and iPad

    by Nathan Eror

    Touch and animation are at the heart and soul of iOS. Good use of both make an app feel natural and organic. Apple has consistently raised the bar for such interfaces as the latest incantations of iMovie and Garage Band show. In this session you will learn how to take full advantage of UIKit, Core Animation and Gesture Recognizers to create stunning and touchable interfaces. This is an advanced, "roll up your sleeves" kind of session with a lot of code. By the time we are finished, you will think differently about how you build your interfaces, and your apps will be better for it.

    At 2:45pm to 4:00pm, Saturday 20th August
