Developer Tools

Starting at 6:30pm, we'll have free food sponsored by Arbormoon Software, Inc. Please RSVP to help us estimate how much food we need. While you are enjoying the food, talk with other developers and network in the local Cocoa community.

Our main meeting will start at 7pm and will feature a talk on Developer Tools by Luke Geiger.

Luke Geiger is an iOS Developer at 6th Man Apps. He also teaches an iOS class for Grand Circus in downtown Detroit.


Lets be honest, most developers are lazy. We don't want to waste time using inefficient debugging tactics or integrating huge third party libraries... Lucky for us there are some tools.

Cocoa Pods: The cool way to integrate third parties nowadays. With one line you can bring in an entire project without fidgeting with dependencies, etc. Cocoa Pods is a dependency manager for Objective-C projects. It has thousands of libraries and can help you scale your projects elegantly... We will discover how to use Cocoa Pods and also how to create one...

Apple Instruments: With instruments you use special tools to trace different aspects of a process' behavior. You can also use a tool to record a sequence of user interface actions and replay them. With Instruments you have the ability to:
* Track down difficult to reproduce problems in code.
* Performance analysis.
* Stress test parts of your app.
* Gain a deeper understanding of how your app works.
