  • Great meeting last month with three excellent presentations.

    Randy Beiter led off with a look at OCMock, Jonathan Penn followed with a look at creating custom Gesture recognizers, and Andy Craze demonstrated how to talk to external hardware.

    This month Craig Castelaz looks under the hood.

    He describes the talk like this: "Xcode's Assistant Editor allows you to view your Objective-C source as Assembly code.  In addition to getting you one step closer to the metal, it also allows you to see other low-level details, like how Objective-C makes use of the runtime, and how Automatice Reference Counting works under the hood.  The presentation is not intended to teach you Assembly, but will give you enough knowledge to recognize the recurring idioms that appear throughout the code,  Mastering the idioms tells you a lot about what's going on in the code.  It also frees you to concentrate on the less-idiomatic code since many of the
    idioms are simple boilerplate code."

    If you have a short talk you'd like to give or you'd like to demo an app you're working on, please drop me an email and we'll schedule an opening act for Craig.
