Agenda Items
  • Sam Marshall is back in town to give a demo he describes as "a PoC that is halfway between KVO and RAC using the Objective-C runtime.”
  • Tony DiPasquale will be giving a demo on Multipeer Connectivity, including multipeer streaming audio.
  • Daniel Jalkut will be giving an extended talk and Q&A on AutoLayout, based on stuff he’s learned incorporating it into MarsEdit.  As Daniel said a few weeks back, "YOU should bring your layout issues, based in Mac or iOS apps, and I’ll lead the room in a collaborative debugging session to try to figure out what’s going wrong with your layout.”
