Washington Apple Pi Afternoon Learners SIG

Afternoon Learners are members of Washington Apple Pi who use this time and place to increase computer skill by sharing presentations of what they've found to make the Mac or mobile Apple device their favorite operating system.  Agendas will be added closer to the meetup.

Visitors and newcomers are welcome. Bring a friend!


About the SIG

The Afternoon Learners SIG welcomes anyone who has time available during the day. For that reason, our meetings take place from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM on the third Thursday of each month. There are occasions when meetings have to be shifted so please be sure to check the Pi calendar for the latest information. We try to help our members get more enjoyment out of their Macintosh computers by providing simple tutorials, help with operational issues and fellowship.



SIG Leader: Neil 'Fergy' Ferguson, [masked]

    I am really anxious to speak to other Cocoa and Objective-C developers. After several iterations, I think I finally "get it" pretty well.

    I am at one of those stages where you need to talk to other developers to crystallize your acuity in the arts of the solution domain.

    Cocoa reminds me of some MVC C++ frameworks I created and used in the 1990s; far more evolved though. Apple's toolmakers really knew their stuff. Wish that Smalltalk syntax was more devour-able by my eyes back then.

    I am getting fantastic synergism learning AngularJS at the same time. I so love 2-way fine grained binding MVC!

    Anyway, I am super experienced at OOD/OOP and MVC, pattern using/mongering, web presentation/data document languages. I know a lot.

    However, I want to learn to pour it into and on native Mac OS X programming as good and quickly as possible.

    Want to converse with more than just my computer about Mac programming now, for at least a while…

      I think most of us don't know what you are talking about. Most of don't do any programming. We do have a few members that engage in programming, web mastering and some high tech stuff. You can come to a meeting and perhaps find out who some of the high tech people are.

      No, you don't have to be a member to sample a WAP meeting. The public is welcome to attend any of our meetings and the WAP is ready to welcome new members.
