Who and what
Presenter: Our guest speaker this month is Mike Gozzo (@gozmike), coming to us all the way from Montreal. Mike's talk is titled "Getting to know your users as well you know your code", and it's about how he learned that the best way to building software that people love is to connect with them on a human level. See his page on the CocoaConf web site for more info.
Open discussion: We'll have our usual open discussion time, where we discuss the latest news, help each other with technical questions, share tips and tricks, and sometimes show off personal side projects.
Dinner: We'll continue our conversation over dinner, at the venue noted above. NOTE: By CocoaHeadsNYC tradition, the group chips in and pays for the speaker's meal.
Google, 76 9th Ave, New York, NY 10011 (map below)
You might want to arrive a few minutes early in case there's a line at the security desk. You will need to be badged in twice, so it will help to be on time.
Be sure to use the 9th Ave entrance. Tell the guard at the security desk that you're going to Google for the CocoaHeads meeting on the 4th floor. Present ID and they will print a building badge.
Take the elevator to the 4th floor. If you're on time, Ed Marczak will be waiting by the elevator to help you get your Google badge. If you arrive after 6:30, call or text Ed or Andy, and someone will come out to let you in.
Any problems, call or text Ed Marczak at 516-662-4185 or Andy Lee at 917-805-8910. See you there!
