Announcing chiPhone

Eric Smith

July 09, 2009

It’s with great pleasure that I announce the creation of chiPhone, the Chicago iPhone developer’s group, with our first meeting on July 23rd at 6:30. The fourth Thursday of every month should feature interesting presentations, hackfests, and everything else you’d expect from a quality developer group.

The group website is now up and running at where you can register there to attend the first meetup. In addition you’ll find directions to the 8th Light offices, where most of our meetings will take place, and the announcement of the topic for the next meeting.

As the official site website all further information will be posted there, including video recording of the talks.

The first meeting will feature a presentation by “the Eric’s” on Test Driven Development for the iPhone. We’ll be starting with the basics of setup and work all the way through Dependency Injection using Interface Builder.

Bring your Macs so you can grab our github project for experimenting. Get to the 8th Light offices early for pizza and refreshments.

8th Light is located just off of Route 45 in Libertyville, and detailed directions are available on the chiPhone website. In addition we are near the Libertyville train station, just email me if you need to arrange to be picked up.

I’m looking forward to a lot of great meetups, and I’ll be asking you to provide some topics in the near future.
