There will be a CocoaHeads meeting later this week.
Date: May 13th
Time: 6 pm - 7:30 pm
Location: Shoe Shop (Patio if the weather is good) Contact Info: 444-4225 or 229-1677
CocoaHeads is an international Mac programmer's group. We specialize in Cocoa, but everything Mac programming related is welcome.
We'll be meeting at the Shoe Shop next week to discuss all things Cocoa.
Do you have an iPad yet? Or is the more appropriate question, have seen an iPad yet? At our last meeting one of our members brought an iPad which he purchased in Maine. And we can attest that a small portion of the reality distortion field appears to have been integrated into each one of these devices.
The rumor mill has been spinning wildly in eWorld and although we can't discuss them all, here is one of the more interesting ones. Some people believe that when 10.7 is released that regular Mac Desktop apps will be more "Managed" or "Gated" in an app store like iPhone and iPad apps.
Let the controversy begin. Feel free to make up your own rumors and forward them for future shenanigans.
Finally, if you need someone to lament the Canadian iPad delays with then might we suggest Cupidtino? http://cupidtino.com/
Why Should I Attend?
Meeting other Mac OS X developers in person is both fun and immensely useful. There's no better way to learn Cocoa or get help with problem than being around other people who are writing using the Cocoa frameworks for development on the Mac and iPhone platforms.
We have Cocoa programmers of various experience levels, so bring your laptops, bring your projects and share your hits and misses with us. This is about collaborating in a non-competitive, supportive environment.
** Everyone is Welcome **
Meetings are free and open to the public. Feel free to drop in even if you've never attended, aren't currently using Cocoa or are simply interested in the Mac platform.
