Conference & event app platform
We’ve been hard at work lately, enhancing our conference & event app platform, which can help events organisers and venues deliver an electronic event programme for visitors and delegates.
Creating an app for your conference or event
Organising a conference, scientific congress, exhibition can be a daunting task – with an immovable deadline and a multitude of suppliers, exhibitors, speakers, venues and delegates to manage, there is often little time to spare for creating a really useful app for your event attendees.
We can help create the perfect app to accompany your event, using the existing assets and data you have, and deliver it to your delegates and attendees in time for the opening day.

Taming the Lion – Mac OS 10.7 first impressions
Right, so the latest incarnation of Mac OS X has finally been unleashed. I installed my update yesterday so I thought I’d share my first impressions after a day’s use.
Apple reports record profits in third quarter – ready to uncage Lion
Apple have just reported a massive increase in profits in their third quarter results – with net profits in excess of $7bn. Sales of iPads are up with a staggering 9.25 million sold in the last three months alone. Given their impressive sales figures recently, to increase profits by 125% is quite an achievement. Reports are also rife that Lion, the latest release of Mac OS X, is about ready to ship and could be released in a matter of days, perhaps even hours.
Why coffee and iPhone development don’t mix
I’ve been having strange warning messages appear in my project every time I add a new class for quite a while now – I had hoped upgrading to XCode 4 would resolve the problem, but unfortunately it did not.
The error message that occurs is this:
[WARN]warning: no rule to process file '$(PROJECT_DIR)/Project.xcodeproj/ProjectHeader.h' of type sourcecode.objj.h for architecture i386
As it turns out, it actually was nothing to do with XCode itself, rather my choice of coffee…
Keyboard shortcuts for dialog boxes in Mac OS X
Since I switched to Mac OS X from Windows over a year ago there have been a few little things that have been bugging me with the UI and keyboard. For example, in Xcode keyword completion was done with the escape key, and I had been used to using CTRL+SPACE with Visual Studio. Apple have now resolved this in Xcode 4, and you can use either keyboard shortcut.
Similarly, in Windows, if you had a dialog box appear you could easily use the keyboard to select your preferred option. With Mac OS X I found I had to use the mouse. I hadn’t realised you can use the keyboard, and you just need to enable the feature.
