Details

Sprite Kit is a 2D graphics and rendering system built into iOS 7. It supports animations, sounds, physics and particle systems to help you quickly and easily develop fun games.

In this intro we'll talk about the basic concepts and then build avery simple game together so bring your laptop with Xcode 5 installed.

This is aimed at people with some Objective-C experience but we'll all work together so complete beginners are welcomed also.

You may want to review Apple's Xcode and Objective-C guides as well as the Sprite Kit Programming Guide (https://developer.apple.com/LIBRARY/IOS/documentation/GraphicsAnimation/Conceptual/SpriteKit_PG/Introduction/Introduction.html#//apple_ref/doc/uid/TP[masked]-CH1-SW1). Also I wrote a brief tutorial available at E-String.com (http://e-string.com/articles/create-simple-game-using-sprite-kit/) based on my AppForCats (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/app-for-cats/id371300692?mt=8&uo=4&at=11lbZX).
