In New Survey Developers Pick Android Over iPhone

Posted by Karey Westfall in "Android News" @ 10:00 AM

http://www.digitaltrends.com/mobile...prefer-android/

"A new survey from Vision Mobile and Bluevia finds that Android is the most popular mobile platform amongst developers, with 67 percent of mobile developers indicating they're developing for Android in 2011-that's an 8 percent improvement over 2010."

We have a winner, folks! A new survey just released from Vision Mobile and Bluevia found that Android is the most popular platform for developers! But not far behind is development for iPhone. Does this mean that Android is slated to be the market leader in years to come?

Stanford Offering iPhone Development Courses Via iTunes

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (iPhone/iPod Touch)" @ 12:00 PM

"Like it did last year, Stanford University has posted the complete lecture and presentation slides for the Winter 2010 term's iPhone Application Development course. If you aren't in school or your local center for higher education hasn't jumped on the bandwagon and offered its own course, the Stanford course may be a good substitute."

I watched some of the lectures they produced in April of last year (they have since reissued the slides in iTunes) and they really are well done. This series just started and is available now in iTunes [link]. The course is taught by Paul Marcos and Alan Cannistraro, both Apple employees. This series includes APIs from the latest iPhone 3.1 SDK and also have closed captioning. But, unless you are actually enrolled in the course you can't get any help from the instructors via email so don't even try. With 4.4 million downloads from the last series, I think you can see why.

360|iDev iPhone Conference Announced

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (iPhone/iPod Touch)" @ 08:00 AM

"iPhone developers who weren't able to make it to this year's WWDC are in luck -- the 360 | iDev Conference is planned for September 27 - 30, 2009 at the Curtis Hotel in downtown Denver, Colorado."

From the 360|iDev website: "360|iDev is the premiere iPhone, iPod Touch developer conference in the world. We bring together the best speakers and sponsors in the industry under one roof!" So if you weren't able to make it to WWDC, this sounds like it might be a good place to go if you are interested in, or already doing, programming for the iPhone. And it is in glorious Colorado (yes, one of my favorites). So if you are free, and interested, better hurry as they are limiting attendance to 400.

Developing Your First iPhone App

Posted by Vincent Ferrari in "Apple Software (iPhone/iPod Touch)" @ 01:00 PM

http://www.tuaw.com/2009/04/27/ipho...ello-world-app/

"In the last iPhone Dev 101 post, I told you a little about creating your first project using Xcode; however, in this post, I want to show you how to create your first application that will run in the iPhone simulator. In honor of staying with the classic way of teaching programming, we'll create a "Hello World!" application as our first one."

10 Print "Hello"

20 Goto 10

Run

That's the extent of my programming chops. Okay, that's an exaggeration but after this excellent tutorial, I think it's time to update my knowledge a hair. Cory does a great job of making it easy to understand and gives just the right amount of handholding to get your feet wet. When I was first learning MS SQL, I was utterly lost and now I'm damn good at it. All it took was some confidence building.

What are you waiting for? Go get started!

O'Reilly Offering iPhone Development Workshops

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (iPhone/iPod Touch)" @ 10:00 AM

http://www.ilounge.com/index.php/ne...ment-workshops/

"O'Reilly has announced it will be holding four iPhone development workshops in locations across the U.S. this spring/summer. The O'Reilly Workshop: Build, Compile, and Run Your iPhone App in 2 Days will be helmed by iPhone app programmer Joe Heck, and is aimed at helping both experienced and novice programmers get up to speed on the basics of iPhone development, including the Cocoa programming environment, the Xcode suite of tools, the Objective-C language, and Instruments."

Unfortunately, if you are interested, it will only be offered in four cities: May 16-17 in San Francisco, June 27-28 in Chicago, August 8-9 in LA and September 19-20 in Seattle. At $1200.00 USD ($200.00 USD discount if you register early) it is expensive unless you are sure it is something you want to do and need a hands on experience.
