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

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.

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

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!

PDX IOS music meetup first meeting
Lucky Labrador Beer Hall

Well, you have to start somewhere. . .

We have no agenda to start with but I will have both my iPad, iPhone, Novation Launchkey 25, and some cans. I also have over 70 (I almost wish I had not counted them) IOS music apps, not that I'm an expert or even useful in most of them. Most notable in the missing category is Cubasis, just waiting for it to go on sale again.
