We just got back from speaking at the YOW! Connected mobile and Internet of Things conference in Melbourne – it was lots of fun (and a nice successor to Swipe Conference, which we spoke at both years that it ran).
We presented two, completely different, sessions:
- How to build games for children – on the design and production of mobile games for younger children
- Building iOS apps for IoT devices: a case study of the Holiday by MooresCloud
The slides from the IoT talk are available on SpeakerDeck now, and the games for children talk will be available soon.
We'll definitely be at YOW! Connected near year – it was awesome!
Up next for us is /dev/world/2014 – Australia's oldest iOS and Mac developer conference. We're helping to organise /dev/world this year, and it's shaping up to be bigger and better than ever! It's happening later this month: September 29 and 30, in Melbourne.
We've announced three great feature presentations:
- Marc Edwards, from well known Mac and iOS developers Bjango, and co-host of Iterate, the mobile design podcast.
- Tom Greenaway, from Kumobius, developers of wildly successful mobile games such as Duet and Time Surfer.
- Paul Fenwick, science educator, public speaker, and occasional pirate, from Perl Training Australia (although he won't be talking about Perl!)
There will be workshops on the use of Xcode for development, as well as one on Swift, Apple's new language (we're running that one!)
As we said in our previous blog post, Secret Lab wouldn't exist without /dev/world – we've been attending since 2008, and it's part of what helped us build a company and learnt to design and create great software.
If you're in the developer community, and you're interested in iOS, Mac, Swift, or game or app development in general, you don't want to miss this conference.
