Stanford iPhone App Programming lecture 10

Lecture 10 from the Stanford University iPhone Application Programming class was hosted by Alan Cannistraro. He covered memory and performance, two topics that are often overlooked when developing software for mobile devices.

His talk included a demonstration on using Instruments to find memory leaks and memory allocations, the dangers of autorelease objects, and using NSThread and an NSOperationQueue to keep the program running during blocking operations.

If I ever get a halfway functional iPhone app developed, the information about finding memory leaks and threading should prove very useful.
