In this workshop we'll get hands-on with the new tv. You'll learn how to build tvOS applications using UIKit, TVML, and SpriteKit. In the first half, we'll focus on the basic architecture and navigation of a tvOS application. Attendees will learn how to take advantage of the focus system, learn how to respond to events using the tv remote, and how to play video. In the 2nd half, we'll look at how to write games with SpriteKit as well as how to take advantage of 3rd party game controllers.
