DevWeek 2014 talk: "iOS developer overview"

So, you're a developer, but you have never worked with iOS? In this session, I provided a head start on how to plan, build, debug and release iOS 7 apps.

The talk covers a wide range of topics, including:

  • the App Store ecosystem;
  • the nature of an app;
  • iOS 7's new UI and how to migrate from iOS 6;
  • interface design; dev tools (Xcode IDE, Simulator, Instruments & docs, etc);
  • design patterns;
  • debugging and optimisation;
  • App Store and ad-hoc distribution;
  • ... and what makes an app successfully.
