WP Coffee Break

There’s a new YouTube channel created by the folks at Southwest Cyberport to give you small, easy to digest topics about WordPress, our favorite CMS. Here’s some of the topics that have been covered so far. Be sure and subscribe to the channel for new tidbits.

Today at the iOS Meetup

What happens at iOS meetups? From the imaginative, original, collaborative minds of Andrew Stone and Seth Hoffman, an amazing bi-lingual, interactive story telling app … and it sings! Then local creative wizard Michael Deitcher shows off the Roller Box, a cross between pinball and train sets using Sphero robots. Gorgeous craftsmanship and a really fun toy!

Photography!

Last night Kenneth Ingham talked to us about principles of successful photography. His talk was really informative and full of useful tips and tricks. Lighting is everything! He promises to send me a PDF of his slides and we’ll get them posted in the Resources section of this website.

The art show that Kenneth mentioned last night is at the Artistic Image, 1101 Cardenas NE Suite 103. Artist Reception is Mar 24th from 4pm to 8pm.

The iOS developer’s group will start a new project

Andrew Stone, the architect of the Cocoa Conspiracy, a local group of iOS developers and entrepreneurs,  will be starting a new project in the Friday iOS group. Here’s a description from him. It’s a great opportunity to watch an app being developed from the ground up.


Besides our Thursday meetups at Winning Coffee, on the first and third friday of every month, we meet from 10:30 – 12:30 at SouthWest CyberPort’s http://www.ideasandcoffee.com for hands on coding – you are always free to bring your current projects and we provide free engineering and debugging and free ideas too.

My artist, musician and children’s book author pal Seth Hoffman wrote Janie & the Hummingbird | Community Publishing and the app is a multimedia easter egg full version of the book with music.
Seth & I have worked all week to take the app to a place where it’ll be easy to see where we are going, and I won’t fumble writing code – instead, I’m going to show the process of app building from ground zero (but have all the tricky pieces of code pre-built and pre-tested so we’re not thrashing and you won’t get bored.)
Then we’ll start a brainstorming of cool interactive ideas that we can work on to make the app very special over the next months.
Set your clock back tonight if you still have those kinds of clocks!
