Intro to the Salesforce Mobile SDK: Building iOS Apps Webinar


Published on

Salesforce Platform Mobile Services provides developers with tools to easily create mobile applications while leveraging existing skill sets like Visualforce, JavaScript and HTML 5. The open-source Salesforce Platform Mobile SDKs give you the flexibility to build native, web and hybrid apps for iOS and Android. This webinar is the second in a series focusing on the new Mobile SDK 2.0 features, and will demonstrate how to create your own native iOS mobile applications that interface with the Salesforce Platform. The webinar walks you through the development of a simple native iOS application that retrieves records from Salesforce Platform and displays them in a master-detail view. You will then implement the means to update a record’s details and send the updated results back to the service.

Key Takeaways:
Learn how to build iOS apps quickly with the Mobile SDK 2.0

See how to interact securely with Salesforce API’s using Objective-C

Intended Audience:
Developers experienced with Salesforce Platform and have a working understanding of Objective-C
