The release of iPhone SDK has made it possible to create powerful native applications for the iPhone/iPod Touch. Based on Objective-C and Cocoa frameworks, the SDK provides a rich programming environment to quickly develop native applications. This presentation will introduce Objective-C/Cocoa to Java Developers and show how Java developers can get productive with the technology very quickly. Rakesh has developed a Sudoku game for the iPhone for a customer and is working on another game for the platform. Starting without any real Objective-C/Cocoa exposure, Rakesh was able to develop the core for the application in a very short time. Rakesh will share his development experiences with sample code to help the audience understand the language and framework.
Rakesh is the owner of Sans Pareil Technologies, Inc a Java and iPhone development and consulting company. Prior to starting SPT company Rakesh worked as a developer, designer and architect for Tribune Media Services. Rakesh has developed a Sudoku game for a customer, and is now starting work on the first of three additional games for the iPhone for the customer.
