With the iPhone more than earning its place in the consumer market, it is now being adopted by enterprises. VoIP-enabled applications on the iPhone present a number of challenges to application developers.
According to Jan Skoglund, "Trying to cobble a VoIP solution is likely to cause developers severe headaches, time delays and frustration." Skoglund will be presenting a 45-minute breakout session at iPhone Developer Summit 2009 West, being held November 3rd, 2009, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in conjunction with SYS-CON's 4th International Cloud Computing Expo (November 2-4, 2009).
Titled "Key Steps to Developing VoIP-enabled Apps for the iPhone," Skoglund's session will discuss the four most challenging components to consider when working to ensure a quality VoIP application for the iPhone.
His session is just one of a sequence of breakouts that will be featured at the one-day iPhone Developer Summit. The other sessions and speakers on November 3 in Santa Clara are:
