WatchKit Workshop

Esri Portland R&D Center
309 SW 6th Ave, Ste. 600
Portland, OR 97204, US (map)



NOTE: The front door to the building locks at 6pm. We will have someone down there letting people in from 6:00-6:45  or so. Post a message here or tweet at us (@pdx-ios, @aranasaurus, or @mbcharbonneau) if you get there after and no one is down there. Try to get there as close to 6:30 as possible though, as we'll be getting started as close to then as we can to make sure we have time to actually get something built!

Bring your WatchKit ideas and desire to learn and/or share what you've already learned about Apple's next big thing, just before you can pre-order it!

We have a project, a simple RoShamBo game (with the addition of Lizard and Spock), which a user can play against the computer on their phone. Here is the repo for it, but it is a work in progress (and probably will be until the day of, if last time is any indicator), though it is pretty much feature-complete at this point. At the workshop we will work together to add WatchKit functionality to the project, including determine exactly what that functionality will be. Bring a laptop (with the current released version of Xcode (Version 6.2 (6C131e)), Swift 1.1, iOS SDK 8.2) and follow along, or do your own customizations!

There will be ample space for people who just want to hack on their own WatchKit projects and chat with other WatchKit explorers as well. So, feel free to BYO Project!
