Swift Hackathon

Hi all - 

Hope this finds you well since our last meetup!

NYCDA has space on August 24 and was hoping to plan a Swift hackathon in our FiDi location. We wanted to gauge interest and see what you're interested in working on? 

Please let us know your thoughts, and we'll happily get to planning!

    It gave me the exact insight I was looking for! Working hard on learning swift now :-)

    Hey everyone thanks for coming by! We had a fun afternoon of Swift/iOS hacking. Let us know what your ideas are for our next event, we're thinking a lecture or informal meet up.

    Yup, there should be a list downstairs! You can also just say you're going up to the New York Code + Design Academy.

    When I get there, do I mention that I'm there for the Hackathon event?

  • Zach F

    Hey William, might be so! We'll see who comes out on Sunday but with 27 coming, I'm sure someone could sit down with you.

      Awesome! looking forward to it. Never went to a hackathon so I'll do a bit of research this weekend.

    I'm also very new to mobile app development. In fact, my coding in general has gotten really rusty overtime but I'm hoping I could meet some individuals at this event who could help me get a better understanding of swift along with objective C

    I am very new to all of this. Just picking up some of the iOS lesson online. Does anyone who is going to this meet up mind pairing up with me? Thank you.

    Hi Den, you don't have to know Swift - that's part of the purpose of the meetup!

    We've decided to change the timing a bit so we have 6 hours. The format is going to be pretty open - show up, work with people on a project of your choice! I will be in for the first 2 hours of the event to see how it's going and make sure everyone has what they need to get started.

    Hi there, Do you have to know Swift in order to come to this meetup? I am new to iOS development and seriously would like to participate.

    @steve & @joe both sound like awesome ideas! Working with graphics + Swift + SpriteKit. Anybody else?

    August 13

  • Steve W.

    I would love to see how far we can go with creating graphical constructs in a playground. With reference to Joe wanting to focus on SpriteKit, can one create an animated character in a walk cycle and display it in a playground?

    Hey everyone, still waiting for some feedback on this before we decide what kind of Hackathon to make it. Of the 18 people going, do any of you have some theme or idea of what you'd like to hack on during the event?

    August 5

  • Zach F

    Thanks for that Robyn! We were thinking of maybe holding a hackathon to build API wrappers in Swift. Another idea would be to build an awesome starter application for beginners to the language. What is everyone thinking?

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.
