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!
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.
Build apps that communicate with everyone in the world. Voice & Video, Messaging, and Authentication APIs for every application. Twilio is a software and cloud-based communications platform that enables the rapid build and deploy of powerful, flexible business communications solutions.
Twilio continues to be a huge supporter of Philly CocoaHeads. Many members have used Twilio technology in projects to great effect. If you have any questions, our local rep is Brent Schooley [masked].
Automating App Store Screenshots: Russ Shanahan
How you can use a single automated shell script to update your screenshots, re-frame them into device images on beautiful backdrops, add marketing text, and upload them to the App Store Connect. I’ll demonstrate how I delegate all the effort to my computer to refresh Happy Scale’s screenshots for 9 localizations and 7 screen sizes.
