Seattle Xcoders March 14: Dynamic Development with LLDB

The next Seattle Xcoders meeting — March 14, 6:30 pm at Zulily (standard place) — includes a talk from Geoff Pado on dynamic development with LLDB. Geoff writes:

As an iOS/Mac developer, you’re probably at least a little familiar with Xcode’s debugging tools. But what can they really do? This talk will cover Xcode’s visual view debugger, LLDB, and even creating your own custom debugging tools.

Sounds great!

Speaker needed for Seattle Xcoders March 14

Due to a cancellation, we need to find a speaker for the March 14 meeting of Seattle Xcoders. If you might be interested, please email mailto:info@seattlexcoders.org.

The Xcoders audience is wonderful — everyone is rooting for the speaker! If you’ve never spoken before, or have done so only a few times, Seattle Xcoders is a perfect place to get better at it. And we’re also welcoming to folks who are beta-testing a talk they’re planning to give at a conference.

Get in touch!

Redmond Xcoders Tonight: iOS Dynamic Development and Debugging with LLDB

Tonight at the Redmond Xcoders, Geoff Pado will give a talk on “iOS Dynamic Development and Debugging with LLDB.” Geoff writes:

As an iOS/Mac developer, you’re probably at least a little familiar with Xcode’s debugging tools. But what can they really do? This talk will cover Xcode’s visual view debugger, LLDB, and even creating your own custom debugging tools.

The meeting starts at 7 pm at Thinkspace. See the meetup.com page for this event for more details.

Reminder! Tonight — at the Cyclops at 6:30 pm — is the unofficial Seattle Xcoders thing. There will be food and drinks of various kinds and plenty of friendly talk. We’re in the restaurant part, in the back. Join us! (You don’t have to be a coder.)

Dave DeLong, friend to Xcoders and occasional visitor to our fair hamlet, writes:

I’m pleased to announce Ejector, an app that gives new purpose to your ⏏️ key. Without a CD drive, this key does nothing; now it shows all your mounted drives and volumes and helps you eject them. The app has a 7 day trial, and costs $10.

Ole Begemann posts a partial transcript of an interview with Chris Lattner on the origins of Swift:

John Sundell: And then he brought you out, right? That was the classic line: the “Objective-C without the C”.

I have mixed feelings about the ‘Objective-C without the C’ tagline, because that’s really not what it’s about.

Chris Lattner: Which honestly I have mixed feelings about, because that’s really not what it’s about.

John Sundell: It’s a good tagline.

Chris Lattner: It was the right thing to say to the community at the time.

Seattle Xcoders Feb. 14: Cyclops Only

The next meeting day for Seattle Xcoders would be Thursday, Feb. 14 — but that’s a holiday, and so we’re not having an actual meeting with talks.

Instead, we’ll make it a Cyclops-only night. Starting time is approximately 6:30 pm. (It’s totally okay to be early or late.)
