Porting Cocoa apps to other platforms: what works, what doesn't, what to do to make porting easier

GNUstep began life as an implementation of the OpenStep specification. Now, the most well-known implementation of OpenStep is called Cocoa and is the recommended way of developing software for Mac OS X and the iPhone. GNUstep has continued to track these changes, and has become a good way of porting code from Mac OS X to Windows or *NIX.

This session will begin with a short talk, covering the overall state of GNUstep from the perspective of a Cocoa programmer, followed by a short demo moving an example application from OS X to FreeBSD.
