iOS Game Development Using Unreal Engine

This will be a whirlwind tour of Unreal Engine and how to use it to develop an iOS game. We will cover many features including:

  • IDE overview
  • Blueprints
  • Compiling the engine from source
  • iOS integration and deployment

Promises and MBaaS: A Natural Fit

As iOS developers, there’s continual pressure on us to deliver solutions bigger, better, and faster in the same or less time frame.  Swift frameworks like PromiseKit aim to streamline the development and test cycle by condensing complex asynchronous code into a manageable step-by-step way to structure your code without getting trapped in the callback pyramid of doom. Since so much of our asynchronous code is due to calling server-side network requests, we’ll also cover using Amazon Web Services as a Mobile Backend as a service provider and how PromiseKit and AWS fit together. I’ll demo these two concepts with a new app feature I’m building into my MobiLinc home automation products. — Wes Filleman
Wes Filleman is an independent iOS app developer since 2008 focusing on the connected home with the MobiLinc line of iOS/Android apps.

Mobile Backend as a Service Discussion

With the recent news that Parse’s days are numbered, let’s discuss our experiences with it and other MBaaS options.
