iPhone Application Development - Ian Baird

Video: http://ignitephoenix.blip.tv/file/1460087/

Event: Ignite Phoenix 2
Event Date: October 29th, 2008

I’ll discuss the ins and outs of iPhone app development and a bit about Cocktails. While a lot of technical details are covered by the NDA, I think that I could give a high-level talk that would still be interesting to the audience.

  • Very good presentation about iPhone. It is an excelent platform to develop some very useful (and marketable) apps. There is quite a learning curve but I think it will pay off.
    I also like your skpsmtpmessage iPhone app. It is a good example of a simple but useful snippet that can be added to a lot of iPhone apps. I was able to get it working quickly but I am getting corrupted JPEG attachments. Can you help? I posted my problem on the issues page on the skhsmtpmessage issue page.

  • Very interesting ppt. The research indicated PPT only contains 30% of information; therefore the 70% valuable information comes from the presenter himself/herself. soEZLecturing.com provides you a chance to record your voice with your PowerPoint presentation and upload to the website. It can share with more readers and also promote your presentation more effectively on soEZLecturing.com.
