A meetup, virtual for now, where 0-2 talks will be given on software development topics, e.g. “Here’s the basics of iOS development”, “How to make a basic website with React”, “The story of how I fixed this nasty bug”, “Why MVC is terrible”, etc. followed by some time for socializing, working on projects, and/or chatting among developers (not necessarily about development).
This Week’s Topic
I will be walking through how to make Pong for iOS. Following along on your machine is not recommended as you will get more out of the talk by just listening and asking questions. I’ll cover some basic iOS concepts. You’ll get the most out of this if you’re already familiar with iOS development, but I’m good at explaining the concepts simply so I encourage everyone to join and see what they can get out of it. You can also stick around afterward and get a more in-depth explanation if, for example, you have no coding experience at all.
I’m experimenting with different days at the moment, but I hope to make it repeat weekly 7pm-11pm. This one is this coming Tuesday, 3/24, at 7pm.
Google Meet for now, and then I’ll book rooms once the doors open back up at the space.

To build community. The goal is to support a community of developers, and eventually inspire people proficient in some area of software development to teach classes. I’m hoping that students from classes will join the meetup and developers from the meetup will be inspired to teach more classes.
There are many software developers at the space. I know we have a Linux user group on Saturdays and Robot Builder’s Night Out. I’m hoping the format of presenting and socializing will draw some people from those groups as well as other members (and non-members of course!) so that we can share our knowledge and war stories with each other.
This is inspired by NSCoderNight, which I attended regularly in Chicago and Seattle. About NSCoder Night
