PDX CocoaHeads - Xcode, help me fix my app's memory problems! w/ Ryan Arana
Dexcom

With ARC and Swift, memory management isn't nearly as difficult as it used to be, but I think every app developer has bumped up against problems with memory management at some point in their career, whether that shows up as crashes or poor performance or just plain weirdness at run-time. This month I'll go over a few tips 'n' tricks I've collected over the years about how to find and fix problems which stem from the mismanagement of memory using the tools built-in to Xcode and Instruments.

Hope to see you there!
Ryan

iPad Design and User Experience -- Mobile Portland
PIE: Portland Incubator Experiment

Before the iPad launched, we convened a panel of experts to help examine what the iPad would mean for businesses, entrepreneurs and developers. The panel was a hit and the conversation continued into the evening.

By popular demand, we're bringing James Keller, one of the panelists, back to talk about what we got right and what we got wrong when it comes to the iPad. Accompanying James will be Darin Richardson from Refresh Media.

Together, they will focus on the most compelling and interesting aspect of the iPad: the way we interact with the device.

We'll examine how the iPad's user interface design works, what we've learned from Apple's own applications, and how other applications are taking advantage of the form factor.

About James and Darin

James Keller is a digital communications strategist and user experience evangelist at Small Society, a small agency based in Portland with a passion for the iPhone™ platform, dedicated to helping organizations bring great ideas to life. Before joining the Small Society team, James was at Wieden+Kennedy helping the Portland office align client business goals and brand experiences with emerging technologies.

Leveraging her extensive knowledge of interaction design, business analysis, campaign analytics, and integrated marketing communications, she has led multiple teams in creating efficient and effective online strategies for top brands such as Coca-Cola, NIKE, Procter & Gamble, Levi’s, LAIKA Studio, Zipcar, and the MTV Networks.

She can frequently be seen at conferences speaking on topics such as information architecture, social media, and convergent culture.

Darin Richardson, Refresh Media

Darin Richardson is a partner in Refresh Media, a small studio that focuses marrying beautiful interface design with smart technology. He concentrates on information architecture, interaction design, and front-end coding to make his clients' projects shine. Before Refresh, Darin earned his chops at software and design firms in California.

Darin is obsessive about the details, refrains from talking endlessly about CSS 3 properties (unless you ask), and always enjoys a good hike in the Cascades armed with his trusty Nikon D90.

Quartz Composer Workshop
TechShop Portland [closed]

Learn to Make Interactive Video with your Mac!

Free. Reserve your space on Yahoo Upcoming http://upcoming.yahoo.com/event/2776974/

We are very lucky to have Surya Buchwald (also known as Momo the Monster) teaching a Quartz Composer workshop.

Quartz Composer (QC) is a free, powerful easy-to-use visual programming language for the Apple Macintosh. This workshop will take you from starting the program for the first time to building your own Interactive scene controlled with a gamepad. You’ll learn how to teach yourself QC, and meet others with whom you can collaborate and troubleshoot. No programming experience necessary.

For more information about QC, see: http://developer.apple.com/mac/articles/graphicsmedia/quartzcomposerinleopard.html To play with an interactive video piece (written by Surya), go to http://momopro.com/stage/qc/ — click and hold your mouse on the video and move it around to control the video.

Immediately following the QC workshop, from 3-6pm, we will have a meeting of the NorthWest AudioVisualists, a new group of artists, musicians, animators, and video jockeys, which will include live performances using QC. See http://nwav.org for more information.

Required:

Macintosh computer running 10.5 (Leopard). Anything from a G4 iBook to a Mac Pro tower will work.

Gamepad (Mac-compatible). We recommend the Logitech Dual Action (either Apple Only or USB), which looks like a Playstation controller and can be purchased for $20 (from GameStop, Fred Meyer, Fry’s, Best Buy, etc.). You can use any USB controller or joystick, but this one will be the easiest with which to follow along.

XCode - This can be installed from your System DVD that came with your computer - it used to be called ‘Developer Tools’. It will install the components needed to develop software on your machine, including our Quartz Composer program. After installing, do a system update.
