One of the iPhone's limitations is that 3rd party apps don't have access to the iPhone's calendar contents using the iPhone SDK.  By using the Google Data APIs and Google Sync, you can now bridge that gap!  In this presentation, Dan will show how to use Google's Objective-C client libraries to create, retrieve, update and delete iPhone calendar events.  His open source code for this demo is available at http://code.google.com/p/iphone-gcal.

If time allows, he will also demonstrate how to use the Google Spreadsheets as a database in the cloud in your apps, whose web interface is then easily embeddable into websites.  You can see an example of this at http://square-master.googlemashups.com, which shows his iPhone game's leaderboard.

Dan (http://www.DanBourque.com) is a technical leader at Cisco and is the creator of the Square Master iPhone game (http://info.SquareMasters.com).

Meetings are open to the public and are free of charge.
