What tools are currently available to help code perform as expected? Why (and how) are more and more business users are actively embracing the iPhone and bringing it into the enterprise?

These are among the dozens of questions to be asked and answered at the iPhone Developer Summit being held in New York City in June - an intensive and content-rich one-day program designed to satisfy the growing hunger among software developers and IT professionals for a broad spectrum of sessions informing developers what kinds of development options and opportunities the iPhone provides.

In the one-day Summit, to be held June 22 at The Roosevelt Hotel in midtown Manhattan, developers will hear from industry experts about the impact the iPhone is having on delivery of rich content to mobile users. Technical sessions will explore a world of web development opportunities on the iPhone including building applications using the new ASP.NET MVC framework, building social applications, and developing high-quality, iPhone-style web-based GUIs for your applications. Additionally, more than a dozen expert faculty speakers will help delegates learn about issues such as when to use the iPhone SDK and when to develop web applications, and how Google's Android differs from the iPhone SDK and iPhone safari development?

Attending delegates will leave the iPhone Developer Summit with resources, ideas and examples they can apply immediately.
