    I thought this went really well considering it was the first one. Looking forward to next month. Do we have suggestions for topics? Maybe using one of the cocoa frameworks with swift?

    Is there any way you guys can set up the next one for a bigger venue? I really wanted to go, but was wait-listed :(

    July 9

    • Frank B.

      Stephen - We're going to try and get a bigger room next time; we're still trying to coordinate space with galvanize.

    Regarding double-quoted characters, this from the head of the Swift team:

    "Note that Character is still evolving and will settle down by the final release of 1.0. One of the reasons that we use double quote syntax to initialize Characters is that they are expected to be able to hold full grapheme clusters, which are composed of multiple code points."

    I too changed my RSVP to no going. I have a conflict with tonight's meeting.

    • Frank B.

      Thanks for the update Phillip -- maybe next month!

      July 8

  • Brian H.

    I've just changed my RSVP to "not showing up". Work issues to deal with, so that should free up a spot on the waiting list!

    July 8

    • Frank B.

      Thanks Brian - I appreciate you are willing to free up a spot.

      Thanks Christopher - I will try to deconflict it for next month.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
