I'm happy to announce the second meetup of the Tel Aviv iOS Developers group. We waited a bit because there were quite a few mobile oriented meetups in TLV at the beginning of the months, and we're now ready to go with a great lineup of speakers.
Similar to the first meetup, we will have an in-depth technical talk (This time by Adam Siton, iOS developer at Any.Do, on the topic of Automated UI Testing for iOS Applications) and a showcase featuring three App/SDK developers which will discuss their product and open a short discussion about it with the audience.
We'll also have time for networking, as well as beer and pizza from our sponsors (Binpress (http://www.binpress.com) and Applicasa (http://www.applicasa.com)).
Schedule for the meetup:
18:00 Networking, beer and pizza.

The importance of automated unit tests and continuous integration is a well known fact, but in mobile applications unit tests just aren't enough.
