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.
Can someone open the door downstairs?
Would appreciate the slide deck, if available after tonite's meeting.
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).
As of right now no if anything changes I will send out an email.
Thank you Jeff! I am now going :-)
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.
Will there be food or should I plan on grabbing dinner before?

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?

That's a good assumption.
Well technically the PDF doc is made available to the public so I don't think that it matters.
They've made available the book "The Swift programming Language" thru the iBooks Store. I have verified that you do not have to be a developer to download the book to your Mac, iPad or iPhone.
Exactly which is why I made the talk now I won't demo anything in xcode bc that is different but I can talk code

We can have this introductory talk now and after the release date of Xcode 6 have a more advanced talk on the same topic.
You're not barred from demonstrating anything in Xcode (even in beta). It's free, it's public, and there is no cost. You just can't distribute Xcode. So please, reconsider your July 24th demo - it really should incorporate Xcode.

My half of the talk is mostly intro and syntax but I'll demo the REPL and playgrounds.

My demo is using already using Xcode wasn't planning on not using it but thanks.

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