Today we chatted about the Apple Watch, REST APIs for app development, zombies and hairy bugs in an actual app.
Scary debugging session 🙂
I just ran across another really interesting technology group in town, the Albuquerque Game Developers Guild. They don’t have a Meetup group but they meet Tuesday evenings at the Levitated Toy Factory. Here’s a pointer to their facebook page. It’s a wealth of useful information and pointers.
And if you’re not on the NMdevs slack group you’re missing some great conversations. Invite yourself here. Thanks to Patrick White for setting this up!
When someone asks you, “how do I get started in making apps and using Swift?”, you can point them to Chris Jungman’s
iOS Development Quick-start Guide by inCaffeine Studios
Stanford/ (and 1 of 4 original AppKit developers)Paul Hegarty’s “Developing iOS 8 Apps with Swift”.
We had a great presentation on autolayout in XCode by Chris Jungmann. Here’s a pointer to his blog with that information.
We also discussed the Albuquerque Open Data framework project that Andrew and Chris have been building. Several folks with Code for America were interested in this project.
Wow! The first quarter of 2015 has been busy with lots of awesome energy in the tech community!
