All the Apple Things

Ed will provide a quick intro to some of the basic concepts in Swift then provide highlights of some of the more interesting topics he has come across while learning the language.

There is room for one more short talk/discussion point if anyone would like to add something. We'd love to hear from you.
If the weather doesn't include a tornado, snow, or hellacious rain in the forecast, we can do drinks at Little Havana outside; otherwise, World of Beer it is!
Parking: Plenty of visitor labeled parking around the buildings (Ad.com is located inside of the Under Armour campus). If for some reason the visitors spots are full (rare), park in the employee gravel lots located off of Hull Street or Key Highway. It's ok after 5pm.
