January 26, 2018 Meeting

Take a look at our updated “Why” Page

Check out the updated list of summer opportunities and more….

Planning Session for multi-faceted solution

Big Picture: At our last meeting we had an interesting discussion about the varied interests our Members have for experiencing different programming languages and types of development. So this week, as a group, we will create a “Grand Plan” for a larger scale solution to be composed of several small projects. These smaller projects may be built in different languages and/or platforms that will all tie together. The components can be developed by pair programming according to interest and experience: possibilities include C#, Java, JavaScript, Python, Swift, etc. Central to the solution will be a Web Service that can be called by multiple apps or Web Pages to return a result in JSON format (JavaScript Object Notation) that be used by the individual app or Web Page.

Tools: Depending on what components we decide to develop, we will identify which software tools are needed so that we can get everyone started on setting up their laptops as appropriate. Some of this configuration may need to be done later at home.

Setting up for iOS Development on a Mac with XCode/Swift:

Please bring your iPhones and/or iPads to the meeting along with their USB cables so we can connect it to the Mac to run Swift apps.

We will be coding in pairs or small groups so even if you don’t have your own Mac you will be able to do everything.

To Set Up a Mac:

  • You will need an Apple ID, which you probably have if you have ever downloaded anything from the App Store
  • You do not need a paid Apple Developer ID at this point; that will only be required if you want to put your apps in the store
  • From the App  Store download and install XCode

iOS Apps with Thunkable

We will take a deeper look at building apps with Thunkable, perhaps doing a simple prototype for part of the multi-project solution we are designing
