This session is from NSScotland 2014. Tickets are currently available for the 2015 conference at ti.to/nsscotland/2015
Find yourself working with URLs and HTTP connections? You're a Cocoa developer, of course you do!
Sadly it's all too easy for us to muddle our way through the handling of these important standards, until one day a nasty edge case trips our code up. I know, I've been there myself.
This session will guide you through the basics, looking at what's really going on, and finishing up with how this all maps onto the Cocoa APIs.
Mike Abdullah "found" Karelia while studying for a Master's degree in Integrated Engineering. Hired on originally to write documentation for Sandvox 1.2, Mike joined Karelia full-time shortly after graduation. Completely unbeknownst to Dan or Terrence at the time, Mike was and is a spectacular Cocoa developer.
Quickly moving up through the ranks, Mike is now technical lead for Sandvox and manages Karelia's open source repositories on GitHub. When not coding, Mike can often be found rock climbing or karting. He is also an accomplished musician, playing both trumpet and percussion for notable garage bands and orchestras around London. Mike holds a Master's in Integrated Engineering with honors from the University of Reading.
