Objective-C/iOS Development for Ladies

  • September 8, 2013 · 4:00 PM

Interested in learning to develop an iPhone app? We have a group for that!

Our first meeting will be to discuss a plan to learn Objective-C/iOS app development in a supportive environment. The learning environment will be casual and the goal is to develop our own apps!

Course: Objective-C / iOS Development (for Ladies)
Date/Time/Place: Sunday, Sept, 8 2013 at 4pm at Stories coffee shop in Echo Park. Look for Gloria and Meet in the patio.

Why: The initial meeting's purpose is to discuss a time/place that works for the majority of the women interested in learning to develop an app and also to help install software. 

Learning environment: casual - move at your own pace.

Type of participant: motivated beginner - advanced 

What to bring: Apple laptop

Cost: Free

We're  a group of women interested in finding out if there are other women out there willing to go through the free podcast series on iOS development published by Stanford U on iTunes (or any other web course that you think we should take a look at).

The idea is that we meet once a week or once every two weeks and go over exercises and materials from the course. If we could go over 3 lectures a week, we could get through the course in 7-8 weeks and develop our own apps!

You'll  need to create a free developer account on the Apple web site, and download XCode in advance. The link to download XCode is here:

We can help you with this at the first Meetup. 

The contents of the following course is recommended as a prerequisite:

P.S.- If you're an iOS developer willing to sprinkle us with your pearls of wisdom we would gladly invite your advice and know-how!!!

    There's a chance I might be a little late, I'm driving in from Ventura county and the event sounds crowded and trafficky. Im looking forward to this, what a great idea! Thank you organizers. Sage

    Oh my gawd I'm so excited to have found this group, thank you! I too will be sans laptop because my shiny new MacBook won't be ready for pickup until 9/12 and my iBook g4 dinosaur is on life support, but I take great dictation :)

    If I don't have an Apple laptop (PC only) but have an iPad instead, will that work or am I out of luck?

    August 30, 2013

    • Luz R.

      Hi Jinna, I checked with Gloria the organizer of this group and she thinks that you may not be able to use the iPad. She has an extra Apple Laptop that she's willing to let you use, so you're welcome to come and see if this will work!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
