    I found it very informative and I was surprised how easy it was to get started as a beginner. The presentations were direct and easy to follow. Overall thumbs up.

      I wouldn't worry about it. Mat said he's also going to accommodate for those who don't have prior development experience. :)

    Hi Peggy,

    Apart from installing X Code from the app store, what other Dev tools / settings would we need?

    Regards,

      Thanks Peggy - what time will the session start exactly as I have some other overlapping appointment . Also - would you guys be posting the ppt/talk on the meetup group.

      Hi Jaksha,
      The event starts at 6pm, though that is mainly for food/mingling..

      The session will properly start around 6:30pm (talk with practical hands-on coding).

      Don't worry if you're going to be late, you can always come and pick up from wherever we're at :)
