The latest generation of smart phones, such as Apple's iPhone, have a growing range of in-built sensors, large screens, and a (near-)ubiquitous data connection. They would make an excellent hub for a distributed sensor networks, however interfacing to them can be challenging. This session will present several methods for connecting iOS devices to external hardware using serial connections.
In this presentation we demonstrate how an Android application can be cross-compiled to other smartphones such as the iPhone or Windows Phone 7. We will give a technical overview of the cross-compilation process based on the Open Source project XMLVM.
Learn how to remain true to your open source ideals, as well as the open source community at large, when developing and designing software for Apple’s iOS. This talk covers the ins and outs of open source iOS frameworks and libraries as well as licensing pitfalls and tips.
