This MeetUp is sponsored by Turn to Tech (http://www.turntotech.io/) and will be hosted at their Flatiron location (184 5th Ave 4th Floor, between 22nd and 23rd Streets). Along with allowing us to use their awesome space, Turn to Tech will be providing pizza and beer. In addition to their iOS training programs (http://turntotech.io/internships-tech-school/), Turn to Tech also provides free space (wifi and coffee included) for people looking to hang out and code (http://turntotech.io/Tech-Lounge/).
Learn: Stanford University's newest semester is now available on iTunes U. Developing iOS 7 Apps for iPhone and iPad (https://itunes.apple.com/us/course/developing-ios-7-apps-for/id733644550).
Location: Turn to Tech, 184 Fifth Ave (just south of 23rd Street), 4th Floor.
Time: 6PM. If you're running late, don't worry, we're usually hanging out until 9PM.
Socializing — 6PM until 6:30ish — Make new friends, find a study group or study partner, or just practice your people skills. :-)
Xcoding — That's what it's all about, right? During a typical Meetup people work on the Stanford assignments, ask other members questions, ask for help with a bug, etc. There is no set agenda and 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.
