Conference attendees will learn how to build professional databases, extend solutions to the web, and deploy custom solutions for iOS devices.

Objectify launched in the Mac App Store
A new development tool capable of creating Cocoa classes based on JSON content has been released by Tigerbears. Objectify automatically builds customizable model classes based on JSON content imported from either a local source or web service, and can export these classes as Objective-C source code. These chunks of code can then be used to create both Mac and iOS applications in the developer's environment of choice. A single user license for Objectify is available for $20 and can be purchased from the company's website or through the Mac App Store.
