    Great talk Barry it felt like old times when I use to first go to the talks a few years ago. Glad you got to give a talk again and hopefully you will have time to do more in the future. Looking forward to the adults in a playground pics lol.

      Sorry Alex I sent out an email and said that the doors lock at 7. I had someone there until 715 talk was over by 830ish.

    Any chance there will be a Twitch stream available? I'd like to go but it seems the event is full (I only recently joined).

    All, I just had to back out of tonight's meetup due to last minute (swift?) travel to NYC. Somebody else gets a slot! Look forward to meeting next time.

    TopCoder is dedicating this Summer to Swift with goal to grow new Swift developer Community. TC is Running series of Challenges & Hackathon - Summer of Swift. Join the developer community and anyone can participate and learn iOS Swift development on real world projects. http://www.topcoder.com/

    I presume that attendees will need to be enrolled in Apple's Developer program, because this topic will still be in Beta at the time of your presentation. Is this correct?

    • Greg R.

      Thanks for the clarification. A post made later (in addition to this OP) seemed to be drumming up scare that people in attendance would need to be a registered developer - and the article (in Apple's EULA) is seemingly only indicating you can't distribute Xcode (not "don't show it to anyone")

      1 · July 21

    • Craig C.

      There are tons of videos online showing Playground and Xcode its not an issue

  • Austin M.

    Really would like to come to this meet up, please change your RSVP status if you won't be attending - Cheers!

    Spoke with Craig this past week about my son getting started in the iOS lingo. We are excited about going to our first meet up with this group. I'm going to put on my floaties and jump in the water.

    Everyone I appreciate the links but please post these things in the forum. Instead of pushing your blog or site here. Thank you.

    Legal Agreements for iOS and Mac developers "Section 10.1 Information Deemed Apple Confidential" reads;

    "Further, Apple agrees that You will not be bound by the foregoing confidentiality term with regards to technical information about pre-release Apple Software and services disclosed by Apple at WWDC, except that You may not post screenshots, write public reviews or redistribute any pre-release Apple Software or services"

    I am not a lawyer but that is clear to me, unless there was typo error, it allows developers to discuss new APIs, features to be discussed in public after the introduction at WWDC. I am quite sure that statement can be read in hundred different ways, though!
