The popularity of Apple's iOS platform is undeniable. In no small part, the popularity can be traced to the diverse ecosystem of applications available for the iPhone and iPad, all of which are sold and distributed via Apple's App Store.
For current and budding software developers, the lure of a exciting and potentially lucrative app market is intoxicating. Games, social media and business apps can be quickly developed and distributed using Apple's development tools. This talk will endeavor to introduce attendees to Apple's tools and technologies as they relate to writing applications for iOS.
The talk will include an overview of Apple's development tools, UIKit API, and several demonstrations building applications for iOS.
