Before the Meeting

We meet out of Indy Hall, a co-working community in Old City. They’ve extended a discount to our group to come in early and work out of Indy Hall for the day. When you get there, mention CocoaHeads and you’ll recieve $10 off the normal drop-in rate (you’ll get in for $20). Many CocoaHeads members are also Indy Hall members, so you’ll see some of us around. Avoid the rush hour commute and join us!

Meeting Agenda

Social Hour

When the doors open we kick off the meeting with our social hour. Don’t skip out on this - it’s the perfect time to say hi to new members, hack on a side project, and pick each others’ brains about problems you’re running into. Bring your laptop and take advangage of our helpful community to push through that problem you just can’t quite seem to Stack Overflow your way out of.

Presentations

Balancing native and cross platform code for your next iOS app: Arpit Mathur

Cross platform libraries have a long history of trading user experience for speed of development across platforms. React Native promises the same. However using native modules in React Native gives us the option of using platform specific UI in your application. In this talk we’ll discuss the advantages and challenges of moving the generic business logic of your application to React Native while still keeping the user experience native.
