As part of a world tour, Sydney- and Melbourne-based developers are being offered a free day of tutorials to be led by Apple's evangelists and engineers.

According to the Apple developer Website, the day will include:

  • An introduction to the iPhone
  • Introduction to Objective-C and Cocoa Touch
  • Getting started with iPhone web applications
  • iPhone development tools overview
  • iPhone game development
  • Developing iPhone applications with UIKit
  • Integrating iPhone with IT
  • Submitting to the App Store using iTunes Connect
It's an important time for Apple to gain developer mindshare in the mobile market ahead of the anticipated release of Google's Android platform and the dominance of existing smartphone and mobile platforms.

Apple has recently showed it is starting to take developer angst seriously. Just last week, the company dropped its non-disclosure agreement (NDA) attached to software that has been released for the iPhone and made tweaks to the app store in response to developer concerns.

Developers interested in attending the day need to register at the Apple developer site.
