Our November meetup will be at Facebook, and we'll start with two great presentations about Facebook and iOS.
First, Adam Ernst will talk about Facebook for iOS and its complete rewrite into its current form. Adam is on the iOS engineering team and worked directly on Facebook for iOS and will also share lessons learned and helpful hints for iOS developers who want to develop apps for scale.
Then we'll meet Christine Abernathy, who works on the Mobile Experience & SDK team at Facebook and is responsible for the new Facebook for iOS SDK. She'll do a technical deep dive into the SDK, heavy on code and examples, in order to facilitate a discussion on the philosophy behind the SDKs and how best to build a rich social experience for mobile apps.
After this, Anand Jagannathan will show us the NewzSocial iPad App that he launched last month. Anand describes NewzSocial as "a Socially Curated News Magazine. Think Facebook for news." NewzSocial is tightly integrated with Facebook for authentication, social curation and article sharing, so it will be great to check it out as an example of what independent developers are doing with Facebook services on iOS.
And finally, have you signed up yet for Renaissance? We're lining up an awesome set of speakers and planning some fantastic events for attendees.
