What really sets the iPhone apart from laptops and PCs is its use of onboard sensors, including those that are location-enabled. This concise book takes experienced iPhone and Mac developers on a detailed tour of iPhone and iPad hardware by explaining how these sensors work, and what they're capable of doing.

With this book, you'll build sample applications for each sensor, and learn hands-on how to take advantage of the data each sensor produces. You'll gain valuable experience that you can immediately put to work inside your own iOS applications for the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.

This book helps you focus on:
  • Camera: learn how to take pictures and video, create video thumbnails, customize video, and save media to the photo album
  • Audio: use the media picker controller and access the iPod music library in your own application, and enable your app to record and play sampled audio
  • Accelerometer: write an application that uses this sensor to determine device orientation
  • Magnetometer: learn how this sensor verifies compass headings
  • Core Motion: use this framework to receive motion data from both the accelerometer and the vibrational gyroscope
This short book is part of a collection that will, along with new material, be compiled into a larger book, iOS Sensor Programming. The other books in this collection are Augmented Reality in iOS, Geolocation in iOS, and iOS Sensor Apps with Arduino.

What are the ingredients of robust, elegant, flexible, and maintainable software architecture? Beautiful Architecture answers this question through a collection of intriguing essays from more than a dozen of today's leading software designers and architects. In each essay, contributors present a notable software architecture, and analyze what makes it innovative and ideal for its purpose.

Some of the engineers in this book reveal how they developed a specific project, including decisions they faced and tradeoffs they made. Others take a step back to investigate how certain architectural aspects have influenced computing as a whole.

With this book, you'll discover:
  • How Facebook's architecture is the basis for a data-centric application ecosystem
  • The effect of Xen's well-designed architecture on the way operating systems evolve
  • How community processes within the KDE project help software architectures evolve from rough sketches to beautiful systems
  • How creeping featurism has helped GNU Emacs gain unanticipated functionality
  • The magic behind the Jikes RVM self-optimizable, self-hosting runtime
  • Design choices and building blocks that made Tandem the choice platform in high-availability environments for over two decades
  • Differences and similarities between object-oriented and functional architectural views
  • How architectures can affect the software's evolution and the developers' engagement

Go behind the scenes to learn what it takes to design elegant software architecture, and how it can shape the way you approach your own projects, with Beautiful Architecture.

  • The underground economy for personal information: how it works, the relationships among criminals, and some of the new ways they pounce on their prey
  • How social networking, cloud computing, and other popular trends help or hurt our online security
  • How metrics, requirements gathering, design, and law can take security to a higher level
  • The real, little-publicized history of PGP

About the Authors
Andrew Stellman
, despite being raised a New Yorker, has lived in Pittsburgh twice. The first time was when he graduated from Carnegie Mellon's School of Computer Science, and then again when he and Jenny were starting their consulting business and writing their first project management book for O'Reilly. When he moved back to his hometown, his first job after college was as a programmer at EMI-Capitol Records--which actually made sense, since he went to LaGuardia High School of Music and Art and the Performing Arts to study cello and jazz bass guitar. He and Jenny first worked together at that same financial software company, where he was managing a team of programmers. He's since managed various teams of software engineers, requirements analysts, and led process improvement efforts. Andrew keeps himself busy eating an enormous amount of string cheese and Middle Eastern desserts, playing music (but video games even more), studying taiji and aikido, having a girlfriend named Lisa, and owing a pomeranian. For more information about Andrew, Jennifer Greene, and their books, visit http://www.stellman-greene.com.

Jennifer Greene, has spent the past 15 years or so building software for many different kinds of companies. She's worked for small start-ups and some huge companies along the way. She's built software test teams and helped lots of companies diagnose and deal with habitual process problems so that they could build better software. Since her start in software test and process definition, she's branched out into development management and project management. She's currently managing a big development team for a global media company and she's managed just about every aspect of software development through her career. Jennifer founded Stellman & Greene Consulting with Andrew Stellman in 2003, initially to serve the scientific and academic community. They have worked in a wide range of industries including finance, telecommunications, media, non-profit, entertainment, natural language processing, science and academia. They do speaking engagements, provide training on development practices, manage teams, and build software. Together, they've written two highly acclaimed books on project management Head First PMP and Applied Software Project Management, Head First C#, and most recently just finished up Beautiful Teams.
