  • Introducing iOS Programming

    by Gun Makinabakan

    In this session, we will be creating a really simple iPhone application from scratch. We will learn the basics of developing in Object Oriented C, using XCode 4. This session will also include some tips on Mac and XCode environments in order to improve the development experience. After this session, we will realize that developing for iPhone isn't as hard as some developers tend to believe like a CodeStock attendee stated in his/her feedback last year; "I had never seen XCode or Objective C before and I walked away from this session believing that it was within reach."

  • Ubiquitous App development with PhoneGap

    by Andrew Glover

    You’ve been tasked to build an app for your company that does x,y, and z. You’ve also been informed that it needs to work on iOS and Android. You think “no problem!” -- that’s what HTML 5 is for! But then you find out that the app needs native features like GPS and a camera. What are you to do? PhoneGap is an innovative framework that allows you to build mobile apps in HTML 5 that have access to device features reserved for native apps. Simply put: with PhoneGap, you can build HTML 5 apps that can use device features like geolocation, the accelerometer, and even a camera, for example. In this session, you’ll learn how to build a web-based mobile app using HTML 5 and JavaScript that is able to live inside the PhoneGap container and take advantage of native features, such as GPS. You’ll see that with PhoneGap the same web app can then be deployed onto an iOS device and an Android one. One app. Multiple device platforms. Job done.

  • Preparing for Release to the App Store

    by Geoffrey Goetz

    This presentation will take on the perspective of the independent developer and what needs to be considered prior to releasing an App onto Apple’s App Store. While the information shared will be useful to larger companies and corporations, the assumed actor will be an individual one person does it all perspective (as larger companies would need to involve communications, marketing and legal representation for many of the steps to a successful launch). The presentation will include such topics as setting up a relationship with Apple, preparing for a web presence, and how to handle user feedback and suggestions. It will also go into device provisioning, pricing, and the use of promo codes when getting people to use your App for the first time.
