Presentation: TweetGoing Universal: iPad Lessons Learned at ING Mobile
One month before we went live with the ING Mobile Banking app, the management team told us that we also had to support the iPad. After shouting "can't be done!" a few times, we got some extra developers and went to do it anyway. We did get it done in time but along the way we ran into lots of problems, took a lot of wrong turns, produced some unwieldy legacy code, and generally made life hard for our future selves. This talk will show you what we did right, what we did wrong, and what we did to fix it.
Keywords: iOS, iPhone, iPad, Development, Lessons Learned
Target Audience: Developers familiar with the the basics of the iOS platform who are curious about what it takes to turn an iPhone app into a universal app with iPad-specific features.
