Perth iOS Developers

This group provides an opportunity to get together with other local iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch app programmers & designers and ask questions, share techniques, show off gadgets, and drink beer.I'm open to ideas about the format of the meetups; we'll start pretty casual and see what transpires.Don't feel you need to be an Objective-C guru to join - developers of all skill levels and non-techies with a keen interest in app development are welcome.

Events coming up

We don't have any upcoming events for this user group. Do you know this group? If so, why not submit a future event? We also support iCal, EventBrite and Meetup feeds.

  • Dependency Managers

    Thu, 26 Apr 2012, 09:30 - 11:30 in Kings Park, Australia

    An area where the Cocoa/Cocoa Touch frameworks have been lagging other toolsets is dependency management (think RubyGems or NuGet). A couple of attempts have popped up recently in CocoaPods and VendorKit. We'll do a technology demo on one or both of these - if anyone's used them before, feel free to volunteer.

  • Coffee & Code

    Sat, 14 Apr 2012, 01:30 - 03:30 in Kings Park, Australia

    We'll try another Saturday Coffee & Code - at least it's not a long weekend this time.The format is the same - we meet at a cafe, bring laptops, ask questions, and generally try to get some coding done. Beginners are more than welcome - some of us will be on hand to help out & answer any questions.Cafe suggestions are welcome - maybe one we haven't done before?

  • App Marketing

    Thu, 15 Mar 2012, 09:30 - 11:30 in Kings Park, Australia

    If there's one things that developers do poorly, it's sales & marketing. I'll organise some "experts" (probably self-proclaimed ones) to go through some of the basics for us.

  • Objective-C

    Thu, 16 Feb 2012, 09:30 - 11:30 in Kings Park, Australia

    A closer look at some new/useful/non-obvious language features. There were a few questions about ARC at the last meetup so we'll try to cover it as well.

  • Game Engines

    Thu, 19 Jan 2012, 09:30 - 11:30 in Kings Park, Australia

    I know nothing about these things. Hopefully someone else does.

  • Jobsmas Meetup

    Thu, 22 Dec 2011, 09:30 - 11:30 in Kings Park, Australia

    Ah, late December, the time of year we traditionally exchange politically correct linguistic contortions that avoid naming religious holidays. I shall dub ours 'Jobsmas'; we shall get together and sing 'Twas the night before WWDC', 'O Little Town of Cupertino' and 'Orientation Lock Night'; we shall imbibe of the holy liquid. We've had a suggestion to get five or six people to do short demos of their favourite third-party iOS library.

  • Prototyping

    Thu, 24 Nov 2011, 09:30 - 11:30 in Kings Park, Australia

    Prototyping is an essential step to coming up with a good app design. What are the best tools & techniques to do this?

  • Beret-Wearing and Latté-Sipping

    Thu, 17 Nov 2011, 07:30 - 09:30 in Kings Park, Australia

    The idea is that this will be an alternative Coffee & Code session that's more focused on design - I'll bring a stack of paper and we can all collaborate on UI ideas for your current project. All beret-wearing, latté-sipping designers are welcome. Bonus points if anyone does actually wear a beret.Suggestions for beret-tolerant cafés are welcome.

  • The Cloud™

    The Cloud.iCloud, DropBox, S3 - what does it all mean, Basil?In this day & age of connectedness, how do you get your app, well, connected? And not re-invent the wheel while you're at it? CulturedCode, cough>I'm scheduling for October in the hope that iOS5/iCloud is no longer under NDA by then. If anyone has some area of expertise (client or server-side) or experiences they want to share in getting an app fully cloud-buzzword-compliant, let me know.Also, CHOGM Eve party!

  • User Interaction Design

    Thu, 22 Sep 2011, 16:30 - 18:30 in Kings Park, Australia

    I'm just going to throw this one out there in the hope that we have some UI designers lurking. UI/UX tends to be a bit of a black art to many developers and it would be good have someone take us through the basics.

  • NSDrinking

    Fri, 9 Sep 2011, 09:30 - 11:30 in Kings Park, Australia

    An after-work social gathering somewhere that serves acceptable beer. Suggestions welcome.

  • XCode Tips & Tricks

    Thu, 12 May 2011, 09:30 - 11:30 in Kings Park, Australia

    Perhaps we can get 6 or 7 people to get up for 5 minutes each to show off their favourite new feature. If someone can explain how the hell Schemes work, that would be a bonus.

  • Coffee & Code, CBD Edition

    Fri, 29 Apr 2011, 07:00 - 09:00 in Kings Park, Australia

    Somewhere in the city. If there are any city-dwellers that know of a good cafe that's tolerant of groups of nerds bearing laptops, feel free to suggest it.

  • Web Applications

    Thu, 14 Apr 2011, 09:30 - 11:30 in Kings Park, Australia

    Shay is going to demo Dashcode for web app development, and Mario will be talking about developing a web api to support an iOS app.Sam will also give a quick talk about his experiences developing the Mooba web app if there's demand for it.

    Thu, 24 Mar 2011, 09:30 - 11:30 in Kings Park, Australia

    We'll be having two talks, one on xunit style unit testing, and one on BDD style acceptance/UI testing.
