Our friends at the

iPhone iPad App Developers/Users Mixup Group are running this event. It's gonna be great! If you were ever interested in learning how to make an iPhone app. This is for you. The class is only $10!  There are just a few seats left. To go you need to join their group and register on their meet up site:


Here is the info on the event:

This class is for the absolute beginners who have no knowledge of iPhone App development process. We will attempt to go through the entire procedure from scratch to approval from the iTunes store, with plenty of actual screen shots. Seeing is believing, speaking to a real world developer is even more convincing. This class welcome beginners, users, and savvy developers. No one is superior than the other, the teacher(s) are volunteers who will share their first hand experience. The primer will also include a free PDF book, you should review it first and bring to the class for discussion, so you won't feel completely clueless. Then again, you can always raise your hand and ask.

Please note that there is a minimum order to use Dave and Busters meeting room. We would require a $10 purchase, plus tip payable to your server. This will include your meal and drink. If you're not planning to have dinner, you can order snack and drink. We may make it easy by ordering buffet style food from D&B so there will be no 60 checks or fumbling through your iPhone payment. Event coordinator is simply responsible to collect and pay the restaurant.

Update: Great News! TEKSystems is contributing $500 to this event. In appreciation to their contribution, organizers will reward TEK with an iPad 5-in-1 kiosk, plus a custom made app to be used at the seminar. Come check it out. We will still collect the $10 for food, drinks, facility fee and gratuity. Anything extra will be drawing multiple iTunes Gift Cards. Again, this is NOT the fee for the seminar as the seminar is FREE. It is to pay for your meal and drinks.
