CocoaHeads is a group devoted to discussion of Apple Computer's Cocoa and CocoaTouch Frameworks for programming on MacOS X and iOS.
17:30 We begin with meet and greet
17:45 An introduction to Swift
Are you interested in Swift, Apple's new programming language? Maybe you don't really know where to start? During this session you will learn how to get started with Swift, whether it is in a new project or in an existing Objective-C project. You will discover some new features that are not available in Objective-C and get a clear understanding on the concept of optionals.
Speaker: Petar Mataic
Petar is an ambitious young developer who hungers for new technology. Because new technology often means that his work becomes easier and allow him to do things faster, better, cooler. Experienced in .NET, he is currently focused on the iOS platform. Born in a country that doesn't exist anymore, he aspires to make the whole world his home, sharing his passion with other software developers attending and speaking at international conferences.
Pizza and Beer break at 18.30-ish
After the break we have time for further discussions on our experience with Swift. There is also an opportunity for lightning talks - If you have something you would like to share with fellow Cocoa developers that can make our coding lives easier it would be super great. It's a friendly audience and all tips and tricks are welcome. You can also use this time to ask the other attendees for advise on anything Cocoa related.
