Today was the first day of SYS-CON's iPhone Developer Summit, in the
Roosevelt Hote in NYC... and I'm pleased to report that the first day ROCKED!
We had an average of 65+ attendees in the 5 sessions today, concentrating &
listening to our technical presenters. Some attendees were already iPhone
Developers, some newbie's and some just here to understand what the
excitement is all about for developing for this cool device.
So basically a real cross section, which makes for a exciting conference!
I'm sure they wre not disappointed, as the first presenter to kick off the
conference was Julio Barros giving an cool overview of Getting Started
Programming with Objective-C and the iPhone, followed by Senthil
Krishnapillai of Sybase, who presented a very nice overview on Sybase's view
of Breaking the Mold - iPhone for the Mobile Enterprise.
Straight after lunch followed Jaso... (more)
This is the last in a series of five initial articles, in which I'm going to

The design cornerstone of the Sybase's MEAP the Sybase Unwired Platform is
the Mobile Business Object (MBO). The MBO encapsulates the business process
logic and data into a reusable unit that can be accessed from a variety of
The development can take two approaches, firstly the Top-Down approach,
which creates the MBO based upon how the client wants to use it... eventually
binding to the data source. Secondly, the Bottom-UP approach which uses the
data source to automatically bind and create the MBO. Both use the Unwired
tooling and are easy to create, with similar ste... (more)
In a traditional modern enterprise, information can be a key factor in
delaying business process control, as people who own information can own
control over the process. Mobility is challenging this traditional process
control hierarchy by making it easier for decision makers (this means
