This webcast will focus on the last two chapters of iPhone Hacks, involving hardware and software development. We'll focus on some of the hardware and software development you can do without having to go through the app store, for personal or jailbreak community release. You'll learn various ways to get hardware connected to the iPhone, without having to go through the 3.0 approval process. We'll include several specific hacks on how to connect keyboards and serial devices to the phone.

A lot of sites cover beginning hacking, how to jailbreak, etc. This webcast is targeted towards people who want to do more hardware and advanced hacks involving software development (as covered in chapters 11 & 12 of our book).

Before graduating high school in 2007, he worked in the field of in-car computers, dissecting and assembling carputers, and contributing to books about in-car hacking and internet video. As a tech-inclined Millennial, he has always kept a Mac laptop in his possession as the most stable, productive link in his computing chain, while keeping a PC as a lovable old crashable gaming machine.
