CocoaConf is returning to Columbus August 9-11, 2012. They have a great line-up of speakers again this year and Light Year Software is proud to be a sponsor of this year’s conference.

It is common for conferences to offer a full-day beginner’s tutorial the day before the full conference begins, but being a beginner’s tutorial, there isn’t anything to draw in the more experienced developers. CocoaConf is trying something new this year. Chris Adamson, the author of Learning Core Audio, is doing a full-day deep-dive on Core Audio.

I’m returning to do a pair of talks on networking, expanding on last year’s single session. The first will cover NSURLConnection and other basic networking APIs, plus a discussion of tips you can use to make the best use of the network and keep your app feeling fast and responsive. The second session will cover more advanced material, including how to use raw TCP and UDP sockets with Cocoa and discover services on the network with Bonjour and GameKit.
