Xcoders Thursday Aug. 8 — Don’t Fear the Project

This Thursday (Aug. 8), Xcoders podcast co-host Jared Sorge gives a talk: “Don’t Fear the Project: Making Xcode Projects More Approachable.”

It’s at the standard place and time — Zulily, with doors opening at 6:30 pm. More info on the Meetup page.

We can pretty much guarantee you’re going to learn things at this talk! Jared has dived in where we mere mortals have feared to tread.

NSCoder Night Seattle is tonight — like every Tuesday — at Wayward Coffeehouse (6411 Roosevelt Way NE) from 7 to 10 pm.

Bring a laptop and a project. Talk to other humans and listen and help. :)

Redmond Xcoders Thursday: Swift Basics with Olof Hellman

At the Redmond Xcoders meeting on Thursday at 7 pm, Olof Hellman will take us on a tour of Swift.

Olof writes:

The Swift programming language offers some features that can change the way an old-school Apple programmer thinks about writing code. Taking full advantage of Swift enums and Swift optionals results in code that’s just structured differently from an equivalent Objective-C implementation. Using the filter-map-reduce features of Swift collections can make code feel more straightforward. Swift’s strict type system can be a total pain, but embracing it can make code more robust

I’ll take attendees on a tour through some Swift code that shows off some of these features, and point to some of the things I especially like about Swift. Ideally, folks who are new to swift (both old-school Apple programmers and complete neophytes) will come away with an appreciation of what makes Swift a compelling programming language.

Seattle Xcoders unofficial — no meeting, just hanging out — is this Thursday (July 25) at the Cyclops, starting around 6:30 pm.

We’re in the back, in the restaurant section. Find the people who look like they’re running beta operating systems and tools. :)

It’s Tuesday! That means NSCoder Night Seattle at Wayward Coffeehouse (6411 Roosevelt Way NE) from 7 to 10 pm.

Bring a laptop. Bring a project. Have a coffee :)

This Thursday: Talks on Functional Networking and on Building a 3D Renderer in Swift

In this Thursday’s meeting of Seattle Xcoders, we’ve got two cool talks:

  • Functional Networking - Allen Ussher
  • Building a 3D Renderer in Swift - Drew Ingebretsen

Doors open at 6:30 pm Thursday night (July 11) at Zulily. Don’t miss out!

And, after the meeting, consider going to the Cyclops for more chatting with fellow developers, testers, designers, and support folks. (We’re always in the restaurant section in the back — and you can get there by walking with the train of people from Zulily to the Cyclops. It’s just a few blocks.)

Tuesday means NSCoder Night Seattle! Let’s all hang out at Wayward Coffeehouse (6411 Roosevelt Way NE) from 7 to 10 pm.

Bring a laptop. Bring a project if you want to get help with it. Xcoders people like to help. :)

It’s your regular Tuesday night NSCoder Night Seattle! It’s at Wayward Coffeehouse (6411 Roosevelt Way NE) from 7 to 10 pm.

Bring a laptop and a project. Or just bring you. Everyone will be happy to see you. :)

It’s the fourth Thursday, so we’re doing an unofficial Seattle Xcoders meeting — no actual meeting! — at the Cyclops, starting around 6:30 pm. Thursday (tomorrow).

We’re in the restaurant section, in the back. Try the Super Bueno Burger. :)

NSCoder Night Seattle is tonight! Like every Tuesday night. It’s at Wayward Coffeehouse (6411 Roosevelt Way NE) from 7 to 10 pm.

Bring a laptop and a project. Or neither, we guess, and just be ready to help people. :)

This Thursday: Seven Short Talks on What We Learned at WWDC

In this Thursday’s meeting of Seattle Xcoders, we’ll have seven short talks on what we learned at WWDC. People will have had just a week to prepare! By which we mean expect raw enthusiasm over super-in-depth details — which is fun. :)

Doors open at 6:30 pm Thursday night at Zulily. Be there!

And consider going to the Cyclops after the meeting for more WWDC talk. (And food and/or beverage, soft or hard, of your choice. We’ll be in the restaurant section in the back.)
