iPhone Dev Camp is in the process of wrapping up even now. During the course of the camp, we were all able to share some valuable lessons. Here I will share some links to some of the interesting libraries and tools that were discussed:
MonoTouch - A development environment for creating iPhone apps in C# with .net
App Vis - A place to download a visualizer for your iPhone Apps status.
Five Second Test - Interface feedback
Squeezing every drop of performance out of the iPhone - A slideshow by someone who really tried to get a smoothly operating app.
Anti-Crack - piracy prevention for your iPhone Apps
Pinch Media - I've talked about them before in this blog, but they came up a bit during the camp. A website for a great library to learn about how users are using your application.
iPhoenix Fund - A fund for developing 133 iPhone apps
I myself gave a keynote today, about Cocos2D and developing games quickly. Although I do not think it has as much value without someone speaking to it, it has been requested that I share the keynote presentation. For those interested, a link to it exists at: this link.
As I type this, those participating in the app track are finishing up development on their app. They gave a demo of what they had a couple hours ago, and it really is amazing how quickly they came up with an app idea and began to implement it. If I understand correctly, the app is actually going to be used at the Calgary Science Center.
The camp was a lot of fun and overall a large success. If you are in the Calgary area, interested in iPhone development, and missed out, I urge you to attend the next one. I will post with details in my blog about it when I know them, instead of the day before like I did this time.
Thanks again to Michael Sikorsky for organising and hosting the event!
