The iPhone is a watershed device -- it democratizes the mobile computing platform, enabling developers worldwide to write and deploy mobile applications. Never before has it been so easy to deliver an application to a large audience. It also boasts a really powerful set of toolkits, simplifying mobile UI and eye candy alike.

In this talk, you'll watch the development of a simple iPhone app from project creation to testing on the device. Along the way, Patrick will highlight some of the features and challenges you may run across working with the Objective-C, iPhone SDK and Apple's App Store.
