WG: Apple Deployment In-Depth
Arek Dreyer, President, Dreyer Network Consultants, Inc.
Kevin White, Apple Authorized Trainer, Macjutsu, Inc.
Apple's iOS devices have ushered in a new era of computing that prioritizes ultra-easy-to-use interfaces in an ultra-portable format. Further, as the working population becomes increasingly technology-savvy, we have seen a huge increase in bring your own device (BYOD) workplaces. This has resulted in a significant influx of Apple devices into organizations both large and small. Despite this, many administrators are still unfamiliar with appropriate techniques for deploying and managing iOS devices and BOYD systems.
It would seem that many administrators are still trying to apply legacy PC-style management practices to contemporary Apple devices. However, just as mobile devices are heralding in the new "post-PC" era for end users, administrators likewise need to forget their PC-style management practices. It's time to welcome the brave new world of iOS and BYOD management.
This session will focus on all aspects of iOS deployment from planning and initial setup to over-the-air management and app installation. You will also learn how many of the same techniques can also be applied to management of Mac OS X devices. Throughout this session techniques will be discussed for both single-user deployments (e.g. an individual's iPhone) and shared-use deployments (e.g. a K-12 lab of shared iPads). Further, this session will primarily focus on native Apple-sourced tools and solutions, but will also cover third-party items when appropriate.
WH: XCode for IT Admins: Exploring iOS and Cocoa
John Soward, Research Initiatives Manager, Dataseam
John Sterling, Senior Developer, Volar Video
John Turner, Chief Technologist Assistronics
Get your code on. Learn the basics of App development using Xcode. After a quick introduction to Xcode and some core concepts, we'll start building an App, and progressively add features and complexity, working through some of the tools in the Apple developer's tool chest, as well as tackling a few commonly desired tasks, such as interfacing with enterprise web services and sending push notifications. To get the most out of the session, attendees should bring an OSX system running 10.7 or 10.8 with the most current version of Xcode from the App store installed. A developer account and iOS device is optional. Basic programming knowledge is expected -- variables, arrays, branching, looping, simple data structures, syntax, etc. Knowledge of Object Oriented programming concepts as well as the syntax of a C-like language (C++, java, php, perl) will also be helpful.

WC: iOS Development for Beginners
Matthew Purcell, Teacher, Canberra Grammar School
Ever wanted to learn iOS app development but don't know where to start? The popularity of iOS apps has taken the world by storm - the 650,000 apps available on the App Store, combined with over 30 billion downloads, highlight the popularity of this platform. Many people have some great app ideas, but much fewer people have the technical knowledge and expertise to take that idea through to producing an actual app. While iOS app development is technical, it is also certainly within the reach of those who have the interest and perseverance.
