Grand Central Dispatch

Your Mac already has multiple CPU cores. Your iPhone will soon. Learn how to take advantage now with Grand Central Dispatch (available in iOS since 4.0). From introduction to advanced topics and performance benchmarks, find out everything you need to know to start using it effectively. You'll even discover how GCD makes it dead-simple to create thread-safe classes. Presentation will be given by Robbie Hanson of Voalte (who recently converted one of his open-source frameworks to GCD and saw a 200% performance improvement).

    Thought it was great. Very well explained. Speaker knew his material very well. Made a very good first impression on me and I plan to become a regular.

    The *best* presentation I have seen at this meetup! I felt like I was at WWDC :) Robbie did an amazing job of articulating the how and why to use GCD in your app.

    GCD is an excellent way to speed up iPhone applications. The presenter had a good understanding about GCD and blocks. The presentation was well executed. The Q&A session was very productive.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
