West Africa Apple Development


Published on

Most of us carry with us much more than a phone. These little machines can not only call people, but also send text message and emails, browse the internet, give away geo-location information, plan your life in an electronic calendar, etc, etc… These devices are commonly known as smartphones (blackberry, iphones, and others). If you do not already have one, you soon will!

This young technology is completely changing the way human kind interacts. Indeed, we are smarter than ever before. Yet, we are just starting to see what the technology can do for us.

It is now obvious that the next greatest entrepreneurs will be pioneers in finding ways to benefit from smartphones. Our presenter, Maria Marin, would like to share these opportunities with us. Her presentation focuses on the latest development library (SDK) for Iphones proposed by Apple, which has already created a revolution in the programming industry.
