Lead Instructor: Alex Cone, CEO,Codefab Alex Cone has over 20 years' experience designing and implementing large-scale, mission critical systems for leading Wall Street firms and has also been working with Cocoa since its infancy - when it was still called NeXTstep and late at Apple hq in Cupertino, California. When the iPhone SDK came out he brought together all his developers for an in-house "kitchen" on iPhone coding. CodeFab has been doing iPhone consulting ever since. Alex is a recognized expert in WebObjects, Web Services, enterprise scale financial systems and iPHone development and has lectured at Apple and OpenBase developer conferences.
The workshop includes over three hundred pages of course material specifically written for the workshop by the instructor Alex Cone, refreshments and lunches.
