Hey Andrew, feel free to put me down as an available contributor to the Animal Services app. I have fairly extensive background in iOS dev. Curious to know what they want.

Hey everyone,

I'd like to start giving summaries of our meetings to recap for people who weren't able to attend.

Rodney's Presentation
First, thank you to Rodney Degracia for giving a presentation on using the JSON framework. He's provided an open source demo program on github, which you can access via: https://github.com/rdegraci/jsonharness.

You can download the framework he used via: https://github.com/stig/json-framework/

Something I forgot to mention regarding JSON. If you write your own service to spit out JSON, you can validate it using JSONLint's validator at http://jsonlint.com/

Orange County Animal Services
I've been approached by the Orange County Animal Services to put together an application to help them increase their adoption rates. Unfortunately, they have no budget, so they are looking for a developer to work on this application pro-bono. I may get involved with the project, but if this is something you are interested in working on, please let me know. It may be a great opportunity to learn something new and to walk through building a complete app, if you haven't done so already.

I've requested more information and I'll let you know what I find out.

WWDC Videos
Just a reminder to those who have not seen them, the videos for the WWDC conference are online and available at: http://developer.apple.com/videos/wwdc/2011/. I believe you need a developer account, but I'm not sure if you need a paid one. Those are an invaluable resource for picking up a new skill.

Stanford iTunes U
If you have not already seen them, be sure to take a look at the free course on iPhone development that is offered by Stanford University. You can view the course in iTunes at http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewPodcast?id=395605774

The course is from Fall 2010, so it doesn't cover Xcode 4.2 or iOS 5, but it will help new users get their feet wet with iPhone development.

That's about it! Thank you to those of you who came out last night. If you weren't able to make it, I hope you're able to make it to the next one. If you made it last night, I would love for you to leave a rating and a comment to help new users find out if this meetup will be helpful to them.


Thank you again to everybody, and I'm looking forward to seeing you all next month.

Andrew
