This past weekend I attended a one-day workshop to learn how to create applications for iOS devices using Open Frameworks. During this intimate session led by ITP veterans Amit Pitaru and David Nolen we covered a lot of ground, though of course we barely scratched the surface of the iceberg (if I may mix my metaphors).
We started the day by getting an overview of Apple’s iOS Model View Controller (MVC) model, and how Open Framework applications fit into this framework. Then we dove into xCode to get OF and the iOS SDK up and running. The last half of the workshop was spend working on iOS apps, which involved little more then touch tracking.
I have created a nice 8-page presentation using my notes from the workshop. These slides focus on how to get Open Frameworks set-up so that you can create applications for iOS devices in five relatively easy (though not necessarily quick) steps. [download a pdf version here]
I plan to write a post about Apple’s implementation of the Model View Controller framework in the next couple of weeks, as soon as I have my head wrapped around it better.
