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 advantage of our helpful community to push through that problem you just can’t quite seem to Stack Overflow your way out of.

The outside doors are locked by 7:00PM, so come join us for the Social Hour before the Main Meeting begins.


Show and Tell: Create ML/CoreML - Kotaro Fujita

Machine learning is a subset of artificial intelligence in the field of computer science that often uses statistical techniques to give computers the ability to “learn” with data, without being explicitly programmed. Object detection and Natural Language Process are just a basic example of what you can do with the tech. Apple came out with 2 frameworks to help you add Machine Learning into your apps. I will have one demo of how to create your own special data model using Create ML. Another demo will take a pre-existing open data model to do a simple image recognition test.

Dynamic Type - Curtis Herbert

Curtis just spent the last two weeks updating his app Slopes to support Dynamic Type. You might have heard of UIFontMetrics, or you might not have. But you probably didn’t sweat the pixels to make sure you top and bottom margins were baseline-height appropriate ;). He’ll share how he went about adapting to various sizes within dynamic type, and tricks to better mimic the behavior of built-in UI classes (like TableViews).

Get in touch with the leadership team at [masked] to propose something!

Post-Meeting Drinks

After meeting drinks will commence at 2nd Story Brewing Co at 117 Chestnut Street.
