iOS and Mac Network Programming LiveLessons provides Objective-C developers with a practical introduction to writing high performance, robust networking code on the Mac and iOS platforms.
In this training course, DeVoe starts by explaining technologies fundamental to network programming, including packets, protocols, TCP, UDP, REST, and JSON. He then explains networking layers and shows the viewer some tools that can be used to see and interpret networking traffic. The video then builds on this fundamental training by covering more specific iOS and Mac OS network programming topics, including how to work with NSURLRequest, NSURLConnection, and NSURLSessionTask. The video then moves on to covering key networking frameworks and security topics.
