(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 ( )

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 (, part 2 ( - This got the most positive reviews for learning Swift.

2. 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 ( - this was suggested at an earlier meetup and was recommended

7. Lister: a list management app ([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 (

9. A geolocation based alarm app for travelers ( = 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.


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

Please see resources that we have posted:

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.
