September 2014 Meeting

When

Thursday, September 11, 2014, 6:30-8:00 PM, followed by pizza at Patsy's.

Who and what

  • Presenter: Kevin Wolkober will be talking about KuaiBoard (formerly QuickBoard), his custom keyboard app for iOS 8:

    The app is a suite of three keyboards – TextBoard, MeBoard, and LocationBoard. Upon switching to KuaiBoard in an app, the user is able to quickly toggle between any of three different sub-keyboards.

    • TextBoard – Quick access to insert canned bits of text, anything ranging from a one-line message to multi-paragraph text. Text is added/managed in the KuaiBoard container app.
    • MeBoard – Insert your contact info (e.g. name, email, home/work address etc) as you fill out a form.
    • LocationBoard – Get your current location and paste it as a Google Maps URL, approximate address, or raw coordinates.

  • 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.

Where

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 [for the Sept 11 meeting it'll be Russell Hancox] will be waiting by the elevator to help you get your Google badge. If you arrive after 6:30, call or text 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!
