Dive into Cross-Platform Objective-C

A session at Reflections | Projections 2013

Saturday 12th October, 2013

11:15am to 12:15pm (CST)

The vast majority of mobile devices today are running either Apple’s iOS or Google’s Android operating system. Top developers cannot afford to ignore either platform. Increasing, they are choosing Objective-C as their cross-platform language of choice. In the short time span of this talk, we’ll show how to create a physics-based “Angry Birds” style game from scratch using only free, open source Objective-C tools. And if you thought Objective-C was only for Apple devices, you’re wrong -- using Apportable, the game will run equally well on both iOS and Android.
