Welcome to the weekly iOS Build-an-App Workshop

Lightning Talk:

This week we welcome Jessica Lam, iOS mobile engineer and designer at 23andMe, CTO at You can find her on Twitter @kangaroo5383.


You will pair program with other attendees and build an app! You'll move at your own pace and will be able to get your hands dirty with an app from initial design to full implementation. Mentors will be floating around to answer any and all questions so you can leave with a super cool app!


6:30 - 7:00 Mingle/Dinner

7:00 - 7:15 Lightning Talk

7:15 - 9:00 Pair Programming (Build an app Workshop)

What to do beforehand?

If this is your first time working with Objective-C and Xcode, please take a look at the Learning iOS Resources page on our Wiki. If you don't get a chance to look at this prior to the workshop, don't worry! You can always consult these resources as needed during the workshop (you'll move at your own pace so you can't be left behind).

We also have a Google Group if you're interested in staying connected off Meetup:!forum/ios-study-group

You will need a Mac computer running OSX 10.7 or later, with Xcode 4.5 or later. Please install Xcode from the Mac App Store before you arrive! It is a very large program and will take some time to download. 

Don't have a Mac? Don't worry! We'll be pair programming, so we can pair you with someone who has one. 

As with all Women Who Code events, this event is open only to those who identify as a woman. Women Who Code is emphatically trans- and queer-friendly.

    Hey Ladies. My child (aka web server) decided to have a meltdown so I wanted to open up my spot to someone else who wanted to come today. Have fun!

    Would there be a place for me to put my bike that's secure? (I still don't have a lock for it, haha)
