Justin Domnitz - Advanced Building Apps for Apple Watch
The Apple Watch no longer depends on the iPhone to make its network requests. The Watch can make and handle its own network requests including OAuth2 and any other authentication pattern you can build for iOS. Apple has made significant improvements in getting and using data in the Watch Complications. We’ll develop a basic Complication and push a data schedule to it. We’ll also enable “time travel” so the user can navigate forward and back along the Complication’s schedule. The Apple Watch is the smallest screen you’ll ever develop for. We’ll look at how iOS UI elements you already know are leveraged on the smaller real estate. We’ll look at animations and other tricks for leveraging this tiny screen. Having a basic understanding of Swift programming and Apple Watch development is a recommended prior to attending this talk.
