What we're about
Whether you're a veteran iOS programmer or you're just starting out, this group is for you.
For beginners it really helps to network with others who are learning as well as with knowledgeable professionals. And for the experienced iOS developer, we're constantly learning — new versions of iOS, Apple frameworks that we never used before, third-party frameworks, etc.
Xcoding — That's what it's all about, right? During a typical MeetUp people socialize, work on projects, ask other members questions, ask for help with a bug, offer help to others, etc. There is no set agenda and (usually) no formal presentation. If you prefer to sit in a corner and code away, you can do that. If you want to walk around offering people a helping hand, you can do that too.
