I’m hosting an introductory iOS meet up in NYC!

Noble Desktop have started the Noble iOS meet up hosted by yours truly! Here’s the first topic:

In our first Meetup we’ll be exploring the popular design pattern: MVC.

If you’re new to iOS, it’s important to understand how the Model-View-Controller (MVC) design pattern can be used to organize your code into three independent sections: the model, the view, and the controller.

Paul Jones will present how MVC works, demonstrate examples, and discuss the benefits of when to use this approach in your own projects!

It’s next week, Wednesday, September 20, 2017 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM at Noble Desktop’s office on 594 Broadway, Suite 1202, New York, NY. If you’re looking for a way to get started with iOS and explore new topics, come on out!

Event: Sam Jarman on Push Notifications @ CocoaHeadsNYC

Thank you to Sam Jarman, CocoaHeadsNYC, and Google for hosting an event on push notifications. Sam has a lot of good advice on push notifications, the biggest take away being that notifications are sent to people and not devices, and that you should respect peoples time. One of the data points he has to back this up is that 70% of app uninstalls are triggered by a push notification! So be wary!

Event: ProtoHack New York City

I’ve been to ProtoHack events in the past and they’re brilliant: there’s great speakers, it’s a friendly and collaborative community, and they’re very well run. It’s particularly useful for engineers that want to enhance their prototyping skills. There’s a new ProtoHack event coming up, here are the details:

ProtoHack is the code-free hackathon for aspiring entrepreneurs, business people, and designers. Either flying solo or in a team (up to 4), you’ll go from an idea to an interactive prototype in one day.

ProtoHack exists to show non-coders that they can create something amazing from nothing. We empower and enable the non-technical community with the tools, knowledge and connections that will help bring their idea to life and visually communicate it through prototyping. You have 9 hours to prototype your idea and then present it on stage to a panel of expert judges.
