I’m going to be speaking at CocoaHeads NY next month (December 5th) (as one of a couple of speakers). I’m planning on doing an introduction to iCloud for developers. What I’d like to do is work on pieces of this presentation here so that I could get some feedback during this.
I am currently in the finishing up stage of an application that I am building – a storyboarding application for the iPad (StoryBuild). I am incorporating iCloud into this app partly as a learning experience and partly as a mechanism to sync the storyboards between different iPads (eventually I plan to port this application to other devices, but the iPad was my inspiration for this app). Some of the topics I plan on covering in this tutorial are (in no particular order):
- How to set up an application to use iCloud
- Using NSFileManager and friends with iCloud
- UIDocument and iCloud
- Core Data and iCloud
- Gotchas and failing gracefully
I only have a 30 minute presentation slot, and this is an ambitious list. While I plan on referencing code I’m using in StoryBuild, I plan on having a separate project that will be available to download for you to try. As to the format, I’m planning on following the same format I used in my Introduction to Cocos2D presentation from 360|iDev Austin in November, 2010.
