It's a UNIX system, I know this!

A session at CocoaConf DC 2013

Saturday 23rd March, 2013

2:45pm to 3:45pm (EST)

Cocoa provides a rich API for app development, but sometimes we forget there's UNIX underneath it. Understanding how to use the UNIX foundation can be a huge help when trying to solve problems Cocoa doesn't seem to have a good answer for. This talk will cover parts of UNIX that can come in handy for a Cocoa app developer. What's an inode, and how does it relate to hard links and symlinks? What is file locking and how can it be used within an app? How can all those little UNIX utilities be helpful in your Mac app? Can your iPhone be used to stop an attacking velociraptor? The power of UNIX is strong; come learn to wield it.
