CocoaHeads: Monthly Meeting @ IndyHall

IndyHall 399 Market Street, Suite 360 , Philadelphia, PA (map)

Before the Meeting

We meet out of Indy Hall, a co-working community in Old City. They’ve extended a discount to our group to come in early and work out of Indy Hall for the day. When you get there, mention CocoaHeads and you’ll recieve $10 off the normal drop-in rate (you’ll get in for $20). Many CocoaHeads members are also Indy Hall members, so you’ll see some of us around. Avoid the rush hour commute and join us!

Meeting Agenda

Social Hour

When the doors open we kick off the meeting with our social hour. Don’t skip out on this - it’s the perfect time to say hi to new members, hack on a side project, and pick each others’ brains about problems you’re running into. Bring your laptop and take advantage of our helpful community to push through that problem you just can’t quite seem to Stack Overflow your way out of.

The outside doors are locked by 7:00PM, so come join us for the Social Hour before the Main Meeting begins.

Formal Meeting

Our meetings are a mix of formal presentations and show-and-tells. We welcome talk proposals of all skill level, and all speaker experience level.

Speaking for the first time and want something with minimal pressure, or just have a cool project / CocoaPod / etc you want to share with the group quick? Consider giving a show-and-tell which usually run around 15 minutes.

Get in touch with the leadership team at [masked] to propose something!

**Presentations Show and Tell: Downlink - Anthony Colangelo**

Anthony gives us a demo of a new Mac app he’s built:

“Watch sunlight and weather patterns move across Earth throughout the day, and bask in the glory of our blue marble in real time.

Every 20 minutes (or every hour, you pick), Downlink updates your desktop background with the newest images of Earth.

Choose from 8 different views of Earth, including stunning full disk images from 3 different geostationary satellites.”

**Show and Tell: Miracle Messages: Volunteering - Edan Lichtenstein**

A volunteer built app for volunteers to help reunite homeless individuals with their loved ones.

Edan will talk about the purpose of the app, the way it was built, coordinating people across the country, some of the challenges and then talk about the code base - “coordinator pattern” and his main contribution which was the timer and the audio recording.

**WWDC Retrospective Round Table**

Pumped for all the cool stuff that’s coming out of WWDC 2019? Excited about SwiftUI? Intrigued by ARKit3?

We are going to discuss key components of the new hotness coming out of WWDC 2019. Some of the new APIs/frameworks will be explored and dissected.

Feel free to bring any quick demos to try out and showcase some of the cool new tech.

Post-Meeting Drinks

After meeting drinks will commence at 2nd Story Brewing Co at 117 Chestnut Street.
