Well, as you all might know by now, I’m trying to take my first steps in iOS development. And if you read my previous post, you have already noticed that I was playing with some color schemes. After a while though I ended up settting my colors in all different kinds of places. When I wanted to change one color, I noticed I had to modify my code in 10 or more places. Sure, there must be an easier way to write more maintainalbe code, and Categories seem to be helping quite a bit.
For those of you who didn’t know it … a few weeks ago I went to the iOS Bootcamp organized by the folks at Big Nerd Ranch Europe. The course was exactly what I needed to get me started on my own app. Some pieces of the Puzzle came together quite nicely during the course, but … I wanted more.
Most of us will probably be back from our vacation, so it’s time to meet up again, learn something about Version Control Systems and show each-other our awesome apps !
The July meeting was filled with information on WWDC and quite a few suggestions from the community. If you are interested in the idea of an NSCoder Night or an NSBBQ, you should read on …
A new year, and a new CocoaHeads Belgium meeting. I think approximately 30 people showed up for the presentation on Core Image Steven Vandeweghe prepared. Once the session was over we even had quite a lot of people join us in a local pub for some Cocoa Socializing.
First of all, I would like to thank all attendees for showing up. I think we had about 20 people fighting their way through the rainy streets and joining us in Nivelles. Apparently there were a lot of new faces, I guess that means the word is getting around.
The November meeting will take place in Nijvel on monday the 23 rd of November. Thanks to Eric Bariaux we will be able to use the venue at TInSys. The office is in the building of Solvay Entrepreneurs. Rue de l’industrie, 20 – 1400 Nivelles.
Over the past few months, quite a few people have started to show interest in learning Cocoa development. Most of these people are not traditional Mac developers, but the success of the iPhone has captured their imagination. “Oh it’d be cool if I could write something that could do … and I could always have with me”.
