This is our first time doing the talk in web conference style. We wanna use iChat at the very beginning. However, it just didn’t work at all in the venue. iChat reported error when I tried it with Lukhnos a few days before the meetup. Luckily Skype works. But the screen sharing quality is really bad. Hope we can use iChat next time if we have overseas speaker.
Back the the meetup. Lukhnos highlighted how to use the ObjectiveFlickr framework for both Mac OS X and iPhone OS. The framework source is developed for both platforms. The main concern is about how to link them. He recommends linking it as normal Cocoa framework under Mac OS X development target. For iPhone platform, we should like it as static library instead. (Well, I did link my iPhone projects with other frameworks in framework style successfully though)
He also mentioned about the initial authorization process with Flickr and discussed the difference between embedding your own WebView for this purpose or letting your app rediverted to Safari.
