We are the Portland chapter of CocoaHeads (http://cocoaheads.org). We meet on the 2nd Wednesday of the month.
We get together each month and chat about current Apple and Portland happenings followed by either a lecture style presentation, when we have a speaker; or an organizer-mediated group discussion for a specified topic, when we don't.
If you're an out-of-towner planning to be in the area and want to speak, please reach out! I'm happy to be flexible on the meeting night to accommodate your schedule.
Both meeting styles allow you to come meet other Cocoa (iOS, OSX, Swift, Objective-C) Developers, Entrepreneurs, Startups from the Portland area to discuss how to design, build, and promote these apps and businesses.
Monthly Swift Learning Workshop, in addition to our regularly scheduled Discussion Night monthly meetings.
If you're learning or working in Swift, come by and meet up with others in the same boat. All ability levels welcome.
In a speakerless format, we'll use mob programming techniques to learn about the parts of Swift or SwiftUI we're most interested in that night.
Please bring concepts you're currently working on (Examples from previous months: Stand alone watch apps; Unit testing). We'll pick projects to build and mob program our way through them. It's a great way to see how others work, learn new techniques, and be around other people who want to learn Swift.
The event will be run by Sam Foulger. Sam is an experienced facilitator, designer, and drummer, who recently built his first app using Swift. He loves bringing people together around a shared purpose to learn, explore, and build.
