The iPhone is transforming the Web as we know it and compelling every Web designer to consider handheld portable devices

The iPhone is transforming the Web as we know it and compelling every Web designer to consider handheld portable devices.

This is the background to the iPhone Developer Summit session "Developing AJAX Applications for iPhone and iPod Touch " to be given in March by Aptana's Chris Williams. The session will cover various aspects of iPhone and iPod Touch development. It will include tips and tricks as well as best practices to follow. Williams also covers how to use an integrated development environment (IDE) for building iPhone and iPod Touch applications and how to use the iUI library to easily build iPhone applications - the free, open source, cross-platform, JavaScript-focused Aptana IDE.

iPhone Developer Summit - March 18-20, 2008 New York City
Could Apple iPhone become a viable portable gaming solution (like PSP or NDS) one day? If the iPhone does as expected and takes a decent chunk of the growing smartphone market then will malware writers start to give OS X some serious attention as the overall penetration of OS X skyrockets? How does a developer decide whether to create a web app or an iPhone native application using the iPhone SDK?  How does the iPhone SDK stack up against Windows Mobile 6.0/.NET Compact Framework 3.5?

These are among the dozens of questions to be asked and answered at the iPhone Developer Summit being held in New York City in March - an intensive and content-rich two-day program designed to satisfy the growing hunger among software developers and IT professionals for a broad spectrum of sessions informing developers what kinds of development options and opportunities the iPhone provides.

The Technical Chair of the event is Kevin Hoffman, editor-in-chief of iPhone Developer's Journal.

In the two-day Summit, to be held March 18-20 at The Roosevelt Hotel in midtown Manhattan, developers will hear from industry experts about the impact the iPhone is having on delivery of rich content to mobile users. Technical sessions will explore a world of web development opportunities on the iPhone including building applications using the new ASP.NET MVC framework, building social applications, and developing high-quality, iPhone-style web-based GUIs for your applications. Additionally, more than a dozen expert faculty speakers will help delegates learn about issues such as when to use the iPhone SDK and when to develop web applications, and how Google's Android differs from the iPhone SDK and iPhone safari development?

Attending delegates will leave the iPhone Developer Summit with resources, ideas and examples they can apply immediately.
