Details

(Sorry that we have to skip a week, but this week we both have commitments).

Intermediate/advanced learners can build Swift apps based on the various resources that we shared (see below). We'd also like to start with a quick show & tell to see what new resources people like and recommend.

BEGINNERS (like me) will continue with the intro chapters ( http://bit.ly/SwiftSF0001 )

INTERMEDIATE: These are apps that people have liked in the past and we can work on them during the meetup:
1. A tip calculator app part 1 (http://www.raywenderlich.com/74438/swift-tutorial-a-quick-start), part 2 (http://www.raywenderlich.com/74904/swift-tutorial-part-2-simple-ios-app) - This got the most positive reviews for learning Swift.

2. Create the Game of Life using Swift and SpriteKit (https://www.makegameswith.us/gamernews/399/create-the-game-of-life-using-swift-and-spritekit) = Also got excellent reviews as an exercise to learn Swift.

3. Swift app that uses the Twitter API - One group worked on this last time and probably will continue.

4. To-Do list - The To-Do list group can share if they have updates.

5. Pong - The pong group or person made fast progress at the last meetup and could share with us how he did it.

6. Turn your iPhone into a remote for Deckset presentations (https://github.com/jpsim/DeckRocket) - this was suggested at an earlier meetup and was recommended

7. Lister: a list management app (https://developer.apple.com/library/prerelease/ios/samplecode/Lister-Swift/Introduction/Intro.html#//apple_ref/doc/uid/TP[masked]-Intro-DontLinkElementID_2) - this was suggested at an earlier meetup and was recommended

8. An RSS reader app- this was suggested at an earlier meetup and was recommended (https://github.com/wantedly/swift-rss-sample)

9. A geolocation based alarm app for travelers (http://chares.ghost.io/lets-make-a-swift-app/) = some people worked on this one and said that the instructions were spotty so there were some challenges. Some beginners and first-timers worked on setting up Xcode 6 Beta 3 and continuing with the Intro to Swift book and playground.

Schedule:

6:00 pm: Networking & food
6:30 - 8:30 pm: Learn Swift together!

Please see resources that we have posted: http://www.meetup.com/Swift-SF/messages/boards/

A note on etiquette: This is a study group where we meet and loosely gather in groups of different levels to help each other out. Beginners can ask more advanced people for help and no question is a dumb question. We support and learn from each other, including learning through teaching.
