Appsterdam Guru Session: Introduction to Gestures on iOS

Appsterdam Guru Sessions are informal, very hands-on workshops to share a technology or a technique between App Makers. Explanation from your peers, open discussion and practical experience are key to these sessions. Best of all, we'll provide the pizza and beer!


Christian Apers from Touchwonders will introduce you to Gestures on iOS.
Gestures form an essential part of your user interface. Using gestures in the right way can really enhance the user experience of your app. 

The session will cover all the basic gestures: tap, pan, swipe, pinch, rotate, double tap, etc.

We will also touch slightly more advanced topics that allow you to combine multiple gestures.

By the end of the session, you'll be able to use those gestures in your own apps. 
Already experienced with gestures? Feel free to bring your own code, there will be time to discuss the problems you are running in.


- basic Objective-C and iOS knowledge 
- you can work with Xcode
- you know how to put a UIView on the screen

    Christian was kind enough to send me the slides and a demo project from last weekend session. For those of you interested, please email me [masked] and I'll forward them to you.

    Thanks Christian

    It was very informative and hands on. I learnt a lot. Pity not more people could make it. But then we wouldn't have had such individual attention. So their loss was our gain.

    Can't make it coming Saturday, but I'm very much interested. When will be the next one? Will there be a repetition of this session?

    I have been looking for exactly these gestures c.q. how to use the objective code that makes them possible. A guru session would certainly help me along. I'll be present.

    Sorry, can't make it after all :(
