iPadDevCamp Chicago logo

Chicago hosted a satellite location for iPadDevCamp this weekend, and I had just as much fun as the iPhoneDevCamp I attended there two years ago. I had the privilege of speaking about Core Animation there, a talk where I crammed too much information into a one-hour space. My Keynote presentation is available for download here. The source code for the sample applications I showed off, NanoSpores for iPad and ReplicatorDemo for iPad, is also available for download.

I had also referenced my Advanced iPhone Application Development class for MATC. The final course notes for that are available for download here in VoodooPad format. UPDATE (6/29/2010): The final video for my class on Core Animation can now be found as part of my class on iTunes U.

Thanks for organizing the event go to David Kinney, who pulled the entire thing together despite having a busted MacBook Pro. He proved that the iPad really can be a work device. It was also extremely generous of TechNexus to allow us to use their very nice facilities for the weekend.
