Post-WWDC thoughts — User Interface Design, Internationalization, and Entrepreneurship and 360iDev Denver September 27-30th

I gave a brief presentation on my post-WWDC 2009 thoughts entitled “User Interface Design, Internationalization, and Entrepreneurship” to the NYC iPhone Software Developer’s Meetup Group on June 22 which can be downloaded here. These three topics cover a lot of ground but I chose them as the result of:

  1. attending sessions with guest developers such as the development teams of Things from Cultured Code and Convertbot from tapbots;
  2. lunch time talks by Dr. Ge Wang creator of Smule and Neil Young co-founder of ngmoco;
  3. talks at the Cocoaheads meeting at the Apple Store by Joachim Bondo creator of Deep Green (a chess game), Dirk Stoop from Sofa on going indie, and a great talk on selling software by Will Shipley dressed formally in a tux;
  4. and talking to fellow iPhone developers.

Sure the new 3.0 APIs are important but without spending at least as much time (if not more) on creating a great user experience, internationalizing your app to take advantage of Apple’s world wide distribution mechanism, and learning about different aspects about being an entrepreneur your app may not sell as much as it could. It’s impossible to do these three topics any justice in a brief talk but I thought it would at least give those who couldn’t make it to WWDC one man’s partial take away thoughts.

I expect the upcoming iPhone developer conference 360iDev Denver to provide all of us with knowledge not only of iPhone APIs but with ideas on:

And that’s only a fraction of the sessions you can choose from! If you are going make sure you register for 360iDev Denver before prices go up on September 1!
