Andria Jensen: iOS tools overview

Title: iOS tools overview

Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nI9lA6YEwDE&feature=youtu.be

Speaker: Andria lives in Nashville, TN with her wife, daughter, and two dogs. She used to own a small iOS development shop, but is now a lead iOS developer for the largest hospital corporation in the nation (HCA). Andria is an avid runner and hiker, which often takes her to many of the local parks for exercise. She loves dogs (especially pit bulls) and volunteers regularly in the community to help people and animals in need.

Abstract: There’s more to iOS development than Xcode and there are many other tools that you will likely find yourself needing on a day to day basis. We’ll do an overview of what tools may be useful for iOS developers to get things done, and dive into some specific features of a few that will help you work more efficiently.
