    PDX Cocoaheads

    Walmart Labs

    Speaker: Al She Topic: Writing Functions: Concepts and Optimizations Summary:We'll start with a few concepts related to functions, such as function overriding, overloading, passing functions as input and output arguments, function nesting, and closures. These topics will include code examples written in Apple's "Swift" programming language. In embedded software development, including mobile apps, it is critical that a software developer understand hardware features and limitations and write functions accordingly, regardless of the programming language. Given these considerations, we'll discuss how to write functions to optimize mobile app performance.

    Please note - we are not at Walmart Labs this month! We are also meeting a week later than usual. eBay doesn't provide pizza, but you are welcome to bring your own food (there are several food cart pods within walking distance of the office). Just be sure you have utensils, napkins etc.

    I will add more details about how to find the space after I have been there myself.

    PS A huge thank you to Todd Bates, who is sponsoring us on behalf of eBay.

    Walmart Labs

    We're joining forces with the PDX iOS group this month, since our meetings were going to be more or less the same. We'll be doing a roundtable discussion, sharing what we learned at WWDC and AltConf. Even if you weren't there in person but watched a video you really think was great, you can share about that too.

    Note that the meeting is on the 3rd Wednesday of the month instead of our usual 4th!!!

    Walmart Labs will provide the pizza, and those who wish to will go out for beer after the meeting.

    Note the time change!!! Meetings are now at 6:30 pm instead of 7:00 pm.

    Core Data has been around a long time now, much beloved and much maligned. What’s new for iOS8 and Mac OS X Mavericks/Yosemite? What are some alternative technologies that are worth looking into (pros and cons)? We’ll take a look and see where Core Data fits (or doesn’t) in modern iOS app development.

    Note: If you have things you’d like to see included in the presentation, please stop by NSCoder Tuesday night and bend my (Scott Neal) ear…

    PDX Node

    Walmart Labs

    Join us for the first meeting of the Portland Node users group. We'll have food, code, and a lovely presentation about Terraformer from Esri by Jerry Sievert.

    What is Terraformer? A library for converting geographic data between different mapping formats and GeoJSON.". But it's more than that, it's a Geo-Toolkit that works in node as well as in the browser via AMD or CommonJS, providing tools for reading and writing from multiple geo formats, converting to and from web mercator, an RTree index, and some simple polygon tools.

    You can check it out at https://github.com/geoloqi/Terraformer

    We'll also get cracking on what direction we'd like to take the group!
