    This was my second meeting. I liked listening to the people who had more experience in the meeting. I asked questions and I felt my questions were answered. A little sign on the table would really have helped. The group met at a different table than last time and there was no one there from the last meeting to know which one was the right table. This meetup is a valuable resource for me. I wish there was one available for my boyfriend in Valdosta, GA. We are lucky to have a city this big to have such a meeting.

    Conversation was dominated between three people. Any comments made by newcomers received brief or no response. If you are a developer and have not been to this before, do not expect people to be interested in who you are or what you do. All you can do is listen to what other members have done/are doing. When I came, I had to interrupt people to ask if it was the developer meeting since their was no sign or other way to tell. I had to interrupt again to introduce myself and get people's names. A third time I interrupted to ask what the other two newcomers know about development, since the three members were dominating the conversation about an exclusive conversation.

      Hello Daniel,

      I’m sorry that your first experience with the iOS Developers Meetup was a negative one. Your point about the table not being properly labeled is a good one as I myself had trouble locating it and had to be directed there.

      However, I simply disagree with your assertion that new people are ignored. Of the 6 people in attendance, 3 were new. Peter was a very active participant in the conversation. He gave a demo of his file sharing app which kicked off a good follow-up conversation. Amy, another new member, asked a question about business entities which began a 15-20 minute conversation almost entirely dedicated to answering her questions. She shared with me her background and her goals for creating an app. She demoed an app similar to what she wants to make. She was also able to demo the current app she’s working on, etc., etc.

      I understand that the nature of the iOS Meetup is casual and unstructured which requires new people to be a little more assertive. This can create a challenge for some. Your note is a reminder for us veteran members to make more of an effort to draw out our new members, but I would also suggest that, if you have a question or a topic you which to discuss, make sure you speak up.

      All the best,

      Dan

    CPCC is having their first mobile technology class next semester!

    The class is Web[masked] Mobile Interface Design. Meeting 1/13/14 - 5/13/14 on Wednesday from 11-12:30PM. D.I. von Briessen is the teacher and I can say he has been a great instructor for my other Web classes. Here is a link to the website: http://www.cpcc.edu/getstarted

    Sign up and pay for it soon because they are shutting down all systems to move to a new Data Center between December 19th through December 30th. You will still be able to sign up afterward, but seats are limited.

    The class is 1 out of 4 classes for of a Mobile Technology Certificate or applies to an Associate Degree in Web Technologies.

    :D

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
