Welcome to the CocoaHeads of Minnesota

The Minnesota Chapter of the CocoaHeads User Group was founded in the Spring of 2008. Our group is a community gathering for people interested in developing software for the Apple devices. The group was formed with the goal of bringing like-minded developers together to share experiences, insights, and techniques. Our monthly meetings are a mix of informal and interactive presentations, hands on coding, and discussion.

We meet the 2nd Thursday of the month at 6:00 pm at the offices of Thomson Reuters in Eagan, MN. (see map).

April 2016

At the April meeting, Bob McCune will be discussing "Getting Started with tvOS": The new Apple TV provides developers an exciting new platform on which to deliver their applications. As an iOS developer, the good news is you already know a lot about writing tvOS apps as it uses the same Foundation and UIKit frameworks used on iOS. In this session you’ll learn how to get started with tvOS, master the platform’s new interaction model based around the Focus Engine and Siri Remote, learn to create Top Shelf extensions, and gain various tvOS tips and insights along the way.
