Alex Persian will be giving a presentation on Metal (https://developer.apple.com/metal/), an API for GPU-accelerated 3D graphics. If you are interested in making games and/or optimizing your graphics-heavy app, then this talk is for you! Metal is widely used in mobile games, including such titles as Vainglory (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/vainglory/id671464704?mt=8) and Asphalt 8: Airborne (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/asphalt-8-airborne/id610391947?mt=8).
