Let's learn a bit of Swift in half an hour.
One day we'll be able to build an iWatch app in Xcode, but until the SDK is available, we'll practice prototyping using the new tools in Xcode 6.
Sample Playground Screenshot
Swift is Apple’s brand new programming language released this year at WWDC.
A playground is a new type of file that allows you to test out Swift code, and see the results of each line in the sidebar.
There are two key things you'll need before Tuesday evening.
1. Register as an Apple Developer (if you haven't already)
2. Download and install Xcode 6 Beta 4
Once you have it installed, see you Tuesday!
Extra credit: We have some great preparation in the notes from our previous Swift event a few weeks back. We'll be going over new code in this event, but don't worry if you missed the last one. You'll be able to pick it up just fine.
What if I can't attend in person?
No worries. We'll post the code, slides, and video to our group website. happy.watch →

About our group
Let's get together and learn how to develop for iWatch. Events are hosted in the San Francisco Bay Area and Silicon Valley. Speakers present in a "live code" style.
Apple's "iWatch" is projected to arrive in October. Expect a slim-profile watch running iOS that integrates with iPhones and iPads. The watch will have biometric sensors that integrate with a new Health app. There will undoubtably be new types of apps for the platform that haven't been invented yet. Part of the goal is to connect people together so they can work on projects.
