MapKit Best Practices

Ernie Svehla to discuss getting the most out of the MapKit framework within your iPhone application

 

With the iPhone more than earning its place in the consumer market, it is now being adopted by enterprises. This session will present best practices for getting the most out of the MapKit framework within your iPhone application.

According to Ernest Svehla, "I will include a quick review of key components then present best practices for displaying map customizations and annotations specific to your application needs." Svehla will be presenting a 45-minute breakout session at iPhone Developer Summit 2009 West, being held November 3rd, 2009, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in conjunction with SYS-CON's 4th International Cloud Computing Expo (November 2-4, 2009).

Titled "MapKit Best Practices," Svehlas's session will focus on the best practices for getting the most out of the MapKit framework within your iPhone application.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
