Second to views, networking is the hardest part of iOS programming. And it’s several orders of magnitude more difficult if you plan to persist a local copy of the data in Core Data, and keep it in sync with the server. Nevermind the tricky theoretical issues of local cache invalidation and conflict resolution, it’s hard enough to get Core Data set up in the first place! At least all of this was true before AFInrementalStore came around. Come learn how AFIncrementalStore works, and in doing so, get a deep dive into Core Data itself.

Apple has provided some truly remarkable language APIs in its frameworks. It’s almost unfair how good they are, considering how most languages struggle just to handle Unicode correctly. From tokenizers and part-of-speech taggers, to transcription, data detectors, and document classification using latent semantic analysis; this session will cover the APIs as well as the linguistic theory behind them, so that you may leverage these insanely powerful technologies in your application.
The changing nature of work - Future Tense - ABC Radio National (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)
What impact are new design practices and changing technology having on not just the physical office but also on the way we think about work itself? Is the idea of the individual office a thing of the past? In this program we explore the physical, social and cultural trends affecting the changing nature of the office and the way we work in the 21st century.

We are the makers of the new everyday things. We design and develop the virtual pens, telephones, newspapers, calendars, and door-handles that people interact with every single day. We are the virtual architects and the products that we design and develop have the power to determine whether people have a good day or a bad day.
In this session, Aral Balkan will outline the important role that user experience design plays in the making of virtual products and inspire you to see that it is your job – regardless of whether you make web sites, mobile apps, intranet systems, or ticket machines – to make this new world that we are crafting together not only usable and accessible but beautiful, fun, inspiring, pleasurable, delightful, and – dare I say – magical.
