July 2014 Meeting

UPDATE — SECOND SPEAKER

I didn't have time to add this before the meeting, but for the record, our second speaker was Ariel Michaeli, CEO of appFigures. appFigures is a tracking platform for app developers and publishers:

We automatically grab and visualize everything that matters by combining sales & download numbers, world-wide reviews & ranks, and other juicy data into powerful, easy to understand reports.

Ariel gave a demo and took our questions about how it's put together. appFigures is hiring, by the way.

SPECIAL LOCATION THIS MONTH — PLEASE RSVP

Many thanks to David Cilia and GrubHub for kindly hosting CocoaHeadsNYC this month! See down below for location details.

If you plan to attend, I'll need an RSVP by Wednesday so that David can give the list of names to building security. Email me (Andy Lee) at aglee@earthlink.net, or ping me on Twitter, where I'm @cocoadog. You can also text me at 917-805-8910.

Regarding food: The current plan is that we'll eat in again, like the last time we were there, but this time we'll all chip in. I'm perfectly happy to go with pizza again but it could be something else if there are decent alternatives that deliver and folks are interested.
