If you haven’t been able to get to Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) but you’d still like some practical help coming up to speed with iPhone development, Apple’s iPhone Tech Talk World Tour 2009 may be able to help.The events happen over the course of a single day, in North America, Europe and Asia from October 29 to December 15, in locations including New York, San Jose, Seattle, and Toronto; Paris, London and Hamburg; and Beijing and Tokyo. What’s more, they’re free. All you need to do is register, and be part of Apple’s iPhone Developer Program.
The iPhone Tech Talk agenda is the same in the four cities in North America and three cities in Europe where the events are being offered. Included are hour-long sessions teaching about how to work with technologies like OpenGL ES, working with Core Data, maximizing performance, networking, preparing and delivering video, and audio development tips. Three separate tracks are being offered over the course of the day, along with an all-day long technical Q&A that puts you in the room with Apple engineers and evangelists, to receive help coding, troubleshooting, desigining an interface, and using the technology and tools that make the iPhone what it is.
Sessions in Japan and China are somewhat different, so if you’re planning on attending the Tokyo or Beijing events, make sure to look at the schedule.
