Letter from the Technical Chair


Enterprise iPhone in New York City!

"With the iPhone more than earning its place in the consumer market, it is now being adopted by enterprises. In fact, many believe that the iPhone will be the most adopted enterprise device in 2009. So the next time you see the hottest device around, it may be in the hands of colleagues or competitors, giving them the edge over you! This adoption is being driven by such factors as the multitude of general applications available via Apple’s iTunes AppStore. But ask yourself....What do I need to know for wide-scale enterprise adoption?

Come join us at the next iPhone Developer Summit on June 22-23, 2009, in New York City - either as a delegate, a sponsor, an exhibitor, or a speaker. I look forward to meeting you there!"

Creating On-Demand Enterprise Applications for the iPhone

The arrival of the iPhone has heralded a new era for Internet-enabled devices; however, the device wasn't designed with the enterprise user in mind. To be successful, enterprise apps need to be optimized for the user experience and fit business requirements. In this session, Dave Carroll will demonstrate how developers using a modern Model-View-Controller (MVC) development approach provided by the Force.com platform can shape the presentation of data to a specific context and use standard web development technologies—including HTML, and AJAX—to create on-demand enterprise applications. With these technologies developers can easily add the iPhone to provide mobile access to their enterprise.

Speaker Bio: Dave Carroll is Principal Platform Evangelist at SalesForce.com. His focus is on growing the developer community and inspiring developers to think creatively about using various Web 2.0 technologies with the company’s Force.com on-demand platform and AppExchange marketplace.

 

iPhone in Action: Web Development or SDK?

There are two distinct ways to develop applications for Apple's iPhone, the top tech gadget of the year. Programmers can choose to create optimized web applications using web languages, or to write native programs using the iPhone SDK. Rather than seeing this as an either-or proposition, developers should consider the choice a continuum and pick the right tool to create each individual program.

With iPhone web applications, programmers can enjoy all the advantages of the Internet, including ease of development and deployment, speed of updating, and off-line server access. Meanwhile, with iPhone native applications, programmers can immerse themselves in a sophisticated development environment, dig deep into an object-oriented language, and access the iPhone's built-in utilities, like its accelerometers and its GPS. This session will highlight the advantages and disadvantages of each style of programming and discuss ways to hybridize them, creating integrated projects that utilize the best of both worlds.

Speaker Bio: Christopher Allen is one of the leaders of the iPhone developer community. He is the host of iPhoneWebDev.com, which is the largest independent community of iPhone-based web developers, and manages its mailing list.
