What we're about
Join our group to learn the language and the tools for iOS development including the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
We meet weekly in Northern VA on Mondays at 7 PM. And we are now two blocks from the McLean metro station on the Silver line.
We are now focusing on Swift language. Currently the Swift documentation is only available through Apple's iBooks store or online:
https:// http://developer.apple.com/swift /
https:// http://developer.apple.com/library/prerelease/ios/documentation/Swift/Conceptual/Swift_Programming_Language /
We were using the books by Big Nerd Ranch. However as Objective-C loses prevalence, we are going to be concentrating on Swift, so there is no requirement to purchase the books:
Objective-C Programming: The Big Nerd Ranch Guide - By Aaron Hillegass
iOS Programming: The Big Nerd Ranch Guide, 3rd Ed. - By Joe Conway, Aaron Hillegass
http://InformIT.com offers ebook discounts of 45% using the code: IUGD45
Requirements for the group:
- Intel MacBook or other device running Mavericks (10.9.3+) or Yosemite (10.10)
alternatively, can use an online rental service http://macincloud.com for about $20 / month
