Chris has been programming for Apple's platforms for over 3 decades, starting with assembly language on an Apple II+. He has contributed to dozens of high profile applications including Postage, the 2009 Apple Design Award winning iPhone app. In addition to his development work, Chris is the co-host of The Record podcast with Brent Simmons.
UIKit Dynamics is an exciting resource from Apple that can bring charming interactions and behaviors to your iOS applications. In this talk we will take an advanced look at the framework and see how to solve common problems in the application of dynamics to real-world interfaces. During the session we will dissect a sample iPad application that makes heavy use of UIKit Dynamics. We will cover common counterintuitive notions and a variety of issues to avoid as well as useful work arounds. Finally, we'll learn how using dynamics often requires a unique perspective. A basic familiarity with UIKit Dynamics is assumed.

Along with the boom in practical applications for artificial intelligence, the popularity of Neural Networks for machine learning has exploded. At the same time, the iPad Pro is the first iOS device to support a native stylus. This makes today a unique and exciting time to explore handwritten user interface methods in your apps.
We'll cover the basic concepts and then discuss some of the challenges and art in building neural networks. We'll use a demo iOS app to demonstrate the feasibility of using machine learning to recognize and categorize hand-drawn shapes such as circles, squares, and triangles.
