Welcome to CocoaHeadsNYC

Welcome to the new CocoaHeadsNYC web site.

Our next meeting is tonight, Thursday, July 14. Daniel Jalkut will give a talk entitled "Block, Don't Run: An intro to Cocoa run loops":

NSRunLoop lives at the heart of every Cocoa application for iOS or Mac OS X, yet many developers don't have a clear understanding for how it works. Daniel will give a high level overview of the run loop and how it mediates between the system's resources and your application's unique functionality.

In addition, IdeaSwarm is providing us with two licenses for their latest release of AppViz (normally $49) which we'll raffle off using our usual undignified method.

As always, we'll go to Patsy's for pizza afterward.

Feel free to come with technical questions for the group. There will also be time for brief ad hoc show-and-tell if you want to demo your latest project or show us a bug that's been stumping you.

When: July 14, 2011, 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM

Where: Google, 76 9th Ave, New York, NY 10011

On arrival: Use the 9th Ave entrance. Tell the building guard you're going to Google. Present ID to get your badge. Go to the 4th floor. CocoaHeads meets in the room named "Inwood", to the left of the reception desk. Any problems, call or text Ed Marczak at XXX-XXX-XXXX or Andy Lee at XXX-XXX-XXXX. See you there!

I'll be filling out this site in the near future so that this can be your first stop for all things related to CocoaHeadsNYC. All feedback and suggestions are welcome.

Thanks to all for making this a great CocoaHeads group — and welcome to newcomers!

  1. So wish I could be there!

    If there's any way of 'recording' the talk so I could download it and listen to it later, I'd be so grateful. (thinking along the lines of the WWDC downloads, or just podcasts).

    Have a great time, Rob

  2. Oof — I forgot to mention, we'll be recording video of this session. This has been requested many times and I've always dropped the ball. I haven't decided how low-tech to go — whether to bring in a camcorder or just use an iPhone or iSight — but one way or another, you'll be able to watch after the fact.
