Since April 2008, we've been meeting monthly to share projects, opportunities, and how-tos related to developing apps for iOS and the systems that support them. Experienced developers, newcomers, and people with ideas are all welcome. We've enjoyed presentations from experts, investors, and entrepreneurs in all sorts of relevant topics: user experience, programming, APIs, marketing, ethics and more. Whether you have a project, want to start one, or just want to learn, come join us!
Logistical note: On a typical meetup night, we open the meetup at 6:30 to give us time to meet and mix at the beginning while we set up for talks to start at 7.
Recording policy: Since our earliest days, we've tried to make our meetups a place where people could speak openly and candidly about things they were learning as app developers. We also like to get the freshest topics, and to make it easier for our speakers to share with us, our meetups are generally not recorded for online playback, and we ask that attendees refrain from recording video and audio of meetups. Thank you!
