In Berlin for the iPhone Tech Talk World Tour

Apple hit my soft spot! 🙂

A few days ago I flew to Berlin to attend the conference dedicated to iPhone developers which took place on november 10 at Freie Universität.

iPhone is the first target of the extention of the videoguide platform, so I couldn’t miss the event that also gave me the chance to visit the german capital for the first time.

As a player of WWII videogames, I attacked or defended Berlin a lot of times on virtual battlefields. Maybe the sort of reverential fear I initially had about Berlin was due to that, other than to my ignorance about the german language. 😉

However, walking around the city, alone or with Laura and Fawzi, friends researchers I met in Toronto during ICHIM 07, my feelings did change: it’s a pleasant metropolis, with bike lanes, an efficient transportation system, little pollution and a lot of stories to tell: from the remains of the Wall to the chocolate sculptures by Fassbender&Rausch (in the picture you can see their unsinkable chocolate Titanic!).

Laura and Fawzi not didn’t only offer me their hospitality for my first stop in Berlin, but also helped me appreciating the city, including german and syrian cuisine: heartful thanks! 😀

The contents of the iPhone Tech Talk were interesting, although necessarily not too much in-depth. Two of the speakers were italians, so it was pretty easy getting in touch with them and talk about i-muse.

And now let’s bite the SDK of the Apple’s phone, since it looks like the ideal device on which i-muse will run!

    Complimenti. Berlino deve essere una bella città con tanta storia, tecnologia, e golosità.
