iOS Meetup The First - ReactiveCocoa

This is the first installment of more regular iOS meetups. As our first topic, we'll tackle Functional Reactive Programming (a.k.a. FRP), via a little ReactiveCocoa (RAC) library released by the folks at GitHub.

FRP is a fun paradigm that can eliminate a lot of boilerplate code and turn complex callback systems into a simpler model. Check it out, play with it, use it in anger, and see for yourself. In this meetup, we'll show you how to create a basic RAC app and use the most common features. Code-along will be encouraged. You can use this simple RAC iOS project to get started. It abstracts time people. Time! TIME!!!

You're probably wondering, "but, but Swift?" Well, RAC isn't Swift compatible yet. But, they're working on it. Either way, it's an interesting way to think about applications on and off the iOS platform (check out ElmReact, ClojureScript Om, and BaconJS for other implementations).

Still want Swift? That's cool, we're planning to have some of our next talks dedicated to Swift. Come out and let your preference be heard. We take requests.

Anyone can help be an organizer of this group. Please come to this first meeting to help us create a roadmap.

All welcome. Hope to see you there.

    We can talk about swift publicly, only iOS 8 is under
    The NDA . Check out the swift blog at

    Also , Xcode 6 beta is available to all registered apple
    developers, not just those who are in the paid iOS or Mac Developer Program.

      I'm not a lawyer, but my understanding is that some things are still not allowed.­

      I'm not sure if the prohibition of screenshots includes using Xcode in a talk.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
