A one-day crash course in making iOS games.

The day will be made up of a mix of discussion, deep dives, examples, and plenty of opportunities for audience Q&A. Session content will include an introduction to the iOS platform, crash courses in Cocos2d and Unity3d, popular/essential iOS APIs for games, and a deep-dive on game architecture selection and best practices.
