Last week I went to San Francisco to attend Apple’s World Wide Developer’s Conference – mainly to find out more about the iPhone and get some answers to some questions I had about the programming on it.
Amazing conference – over 5000 people and 1000 Apple Engineers to actually look at your code and help you out! Unique opportunity.
I’m not even going to post an update on the novelties about the new 3G iPhone simply because there are thousands of news articles about it already. In any case here’s a short list of what I thought was most relevant to me:
– 3G meaning faster internet connection on the cellular networks
– GPS for more accurate geo-coding
– Application notifications – the ability to push notifications to your application on the iPhone even if it is not running.
On Thursday Moran and I took a break from the conference and went to see the Golden Gate. Here are some photos:
