Introduction to iPhone Development

WRK11 Workshops Track



Designed for developers, this hands-on workshop will focus on building both Web and native applications for the iPhone OS platform. Learn the basics of Dashcode -- a powerful tool for building graphical user interfaces for iPhone Web apps using HTML and JavaScript -- and Xcode and Interface Builder -- tools for building native applications in Objective-C for the App Store.

Attendees should have some familiarity with software development and are required to have signed up for the free iPhone
Development program. See: An Intel-based Macintosh with the latest version of the iPhone SDK / Xcode is required. See:

We will have some equipment available on a first come first served basis. An iPhone / iPod Touch is not required as we will be using the iPhone simulator for our testing.
