This month Mark Pauley from Anki (of Apple Keynote Fame) will be presenting his talk "Bluetooth Low Energy and iOS". Bluetooth Low Energy is a robust low latency, low throughput, low power wireless technology that has been available on every shipping iOS device since the iPhone 4s. The iOS Engineers at Anki (the makers of Anki Drive) will show you the basics of using the CoreBluetooth API, and help read in-between the lines of the CoreBluetooth docs to avoid common pitfalls. 

Mark Pauley is an iOS Software Engineer at Anki, Inc. (www.anki.com), where he wrote (along with Mark Palatucci and Brian Chapados) the CoreBluetooth based device communications code as well as the CoreBluetooth based phone to phone communication code that makes Anki Drive playable by multiple simultaneous iOS devices. Previous to Anki, he worked at Apple on the NSURLConnection and CFStream networking API.

Thanks to this month's sponsor, StripeStripe is the easiest way to accept credit and debit card payments online. With Stripe, you can create exactly the payment experience you want in your website or mobile app, and we handle everything from security to daily transfers to your bank account. You can get started immediately.

Every month, we meet for some tech talks and free beer. iOS developers can present their newest project/library and then we'll have an hour of networking and drinks. Topics will stay specific to Objective-C and iOS. Open-source projects are highly encouraged, please reach out to Steve Derico if you are interested in speaking. 

Please do your best to arrive before 8pm, we will start the talk at 8:05pm. The door will lock at 8pm because of building rules. We cannot hold the door open for everyone once the talk has started.

    I strongly invite people desiring to learn more about BTLE / CoreBluetooth to watch the WWDC talks given on the subject in 2011, 2012 and 2013.
    The limitations of the technology and most of the "gotchas" presented by Mark will hopefully make more sense with a broader understanding of the design decisions behind the iOS implementation.

      I'm sorry if the last part felt like a roast, we absolutely love CoreBluetooth at Anki! There is just nothing quite as simple to get an iPhone talking to an embedded device. I didn't even mention RSSI, which can make user experiences truly magical.

    I want to thank everyone who came last night!
    I also want to take the time to point out that although there are some tricky bits to CoreBluetooth, it is quite an elegant and very rock solid API.
    My thanks to the Apple CoreBluetooth team for making my work easier!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
