SecondConf logo

I've been invited to give a talk at the SecondConf developer conference in Chicago, and I'm writing this to accompany it. I'll be talking about using the GPU to accelerate processing of video on Mac and iOS. The slides for this talk are available here. The source code samples used in this talk will be linked throughout this article. Additionally, I'll refer to the course I teach on advanced iPhone development, which can be found on iTunes U here.

Read on for more on using the GPU to accelerate processing of video.

Pi Cubed icon

Pi Cubed Lite, the free version of Pi Cubed, has been updated to version 2.0. This new version is now available for download from the App Store. The new version brings many of the enhancements from Pi Cubed 2.0, such as a undo / redo support, unlimited saved calculations, a cleaner interface, and Retina display and iOS 4.0 support. This new version of Pi Cubed Lite does not have the iPad interface that the full version does, nor the built-in and custom equation library capabilities. Additionally, Pi Cubed Lite now serves iAds within the application and requires iOS 4.0 to run.
