This is a group for Cocoa and Objective C developers interested in sharing with and learning from each other. We'll meet on the second Thursday of each month to hear and give presentations on hot Cocoa topics like Core Data, iOS 8 and getting your app from idea to app store. Code and materials will be available on our github repository before the session so you can follow along, and after the presentation we'll have time for group discussion, Q & A and show-and-tell for apps people are working on. I'm starting this group because I want to grow a Tampa Bay native-code Objective C and Cocoa community.
I'm all about the deep technical dive and big on building things yourself instead of just grabbing components and slapping them together; you learn app architecture much more thoroughly that way.
