Hello. This Meetup is all about designing, and programming, mobile apps for iOS devices. During the Meetups, we will be discussing topics of a technical nature having to do primarily with software design and programming for iOS. As many of you may know, the iOS platform has been around for many years now, and has grown greatly. There will be no shortage of topics to discuss. We will be discussing everything from aspects of the Swift and Objective-C programming languages, the various Apple frameworks, threading and background operations. Even some items that are not so specific to iOS, such as source code control and design patterns. I hope this Meetup serves to not only expand your knowledge of the wonderful iOS platform, but also to allow iOS developers in Bend, Oregon, and surrounding areas, to network and get to know each other. I hope to see you at one of the Meetups. Cheers.
