Our next meeting will take place this Thursday, August 9th at the Facebook office.

This week we welcome Tom Brodhurst-Hill all the way from Australia. Tom will show how to build the UI for apps like Lego blocks – combining UIKit code and Interface Builder, storyboards, xibs, IBInspectable, and IBDesignable, in ways you probably haven’t seen before.

Here is a brief bio of Tom:
Tom Brodhurst-Hill runs a small consultancy called "BareFeetWare", based in Australia. He builds apps and leads teams at major enterprises and government departments. Tom runs workshops for designers and developers, showing them how to get the most of Xcode and Interface builder and build apps like Lego.

As a child, Tom saved his pocket money to buy Lego, and marvelled at how the blocks could be assembled and altered to create many different toys. He eventually sold his Lego to buy his first computer and years later started developing apps for iOS. Some things haven’t changed. He still likes building components that anyone can assemble like Lego blocks to make apps. He still doesn’t wear shoes.

IMPORTANT
Below is a link to a google form. Please fill out your name and email address if you plan to attend on Thursday.

Just an FYI, regardless of what you're told at building reception, please come to the 15th floor. Thanks!

Another great meeting!

Paul asked if we could think of any Cocoa deprecations that were ever actually removed. One ancient example came up in a discussion just now: +poseAs:. I'm pretty sure there are others, but I can't think of them. One could probably find some in Xcode release notes. Somebody has a web site where they post SDK diffs, but I don't remember the name of it. There's also this by Erica Sadun:
