This week the London Flash Platform User Group ran an evening of iPhone developer talks. My talk, “iPhone Coding For Web Developers” seemed to go down well. As a web developer, I’ve found the iPhone development environment exciting in its power and possibilities, but also perplexing in its lack of basic facilities that I’d take for granted in a modern dynamic language. This talk (based on a previous blog post here) goes into some detail about how I use HTTP, JSON and other web-oriented tech in my iPhone work.

My esteemed former colleague Tom Coates has been giving a talk recently entitled Native to a Web of Data: Designing a Part of the Aggregate Web. It’s a tour de force journey through key issues and implications of the renaissance in web thinking that’s happening right now.
In his talk, Tom very kindly references a talk I gave at last year’s XTech conference. It’s based on a great deal of work he and I did together at the BBC, and endless conversations that we’ve had on the nature of the web. It’s called The Application of Weblike Design to Data: Designing Data for Reuse and hopefully those slides are some use to those seeking background for Tom’s narrative.
I’ve had a proposal for a paper accepted for XML Europe 2004. Yay! Looking forward to meeting lots of old friends and making new ones in Amsterdam in April. Let me know if you’re going to be there. Here’s what I submitted:
I gave a developer-oriented version of my semantic web “photos and metadata” talk at www2003 developers day. The slides are available online and there are a bunch of demos to look at.
This morning I did my talk (A Semantic Web Shoebox – Annotating Photos with RSS and RDF) at XMLEurope 2003. The slides are now available.
