First things first, sorry for the really super late invitation! Hope you can make it despite the short notice! This time we have two really great topics that you don't want to miss! First, nevyn will introduce his latest side project: Lookback, a tool for recording user experience testing sessions on iOS. And then Amanda Rösler from Toca Boca will talk about how they make digital toys!
I would really like to try a new idea I've had for a while. I call it CocoaHeads Labs, because it's a pretty much a rip off of the Labs sessions at WWDC. To be more specific, there will be several stations, where each station have a topic. It could be Auto Layout, Concurrency, Core Animation, Core Graphics, Core Data, KVO/KVC, WWDC predictions/rumors, UI/UX or something else interesting. Each station will have one or more persons that have some experience with the topic. Then it's up to you to mingle between the different stations, ask questions, listen to others questions or join the discussions. Bring your own code if you have specific questions! I hope it will be fun!
Please let me know if you want to help me out with a station! You don't have to be an expert in your topic, some experience will do! And you don't have to prepare anything, even if it's great if you try to come up with some conversation starters and/or some really simple code examples.

Spotify is buying food / beer for everyone, so please RSVP to this event and let them know if you're coming. Please note that there are only 230 seats this time. All attendees must be registered (no guests) and have a RSVP. Specify if you prefer vegetarian food or have any allergies. Bring photo id to the meeting to be sure to be let in.
Take the opportunity to present your app to fellow developers! Share your insights and get feedback on how you can improve your app. There are two available spots for app presentations in the agenda, so let me know if you are interested in one of them.
Looking for future presenters!
We're always on the look-out for people that would like to give a talk for a meeting. The talk doesn't need to be long (10 minutes is fine if your topic is small or you just want to tease the group) and you don't need to be an expert (your commitment to the topic is more important!). Toss me an e-mail and we'll work something out for a future meeting! Also, if you want to show something you've done, don't hesitate to let me know, it doesn't have to be a formal presentation.
Looking for future hosting companies!
We're always on the look-out for companies that work with Cocoa in some way and who want to invite the Stockholm Cocoa developer community to their office. Please let me know if your company is interested in hosting one of our meetings!
