We had our first session last night, February 4. Johann of Sagada Solutions was kind enough to host the meet-up.
We skipped discussion of assginment 1A as it was really very simple and no one had problems with it.
Assignment 1B has four sections, so we took turns in discussing our solutions. Paul discussed section 1, Topher section 2, Rad section 3 and Eumir section 4.
Topher mentioned some confusion in creating the project under XCode 3.2/Snow Leopard. The screenshot provided by the handout was for XCode 3.1/Leopard. If you’re on XCode 3.2/SL, see the screenshot below on how the New Project dialog should look like.
Everyone was excited and wanted to try a bit faster pace. Tentatively, the next meetup is on Thursday, February 11. It will cover Lectures 3-4 and assignments 2A and 2B. We’ll check our progress over the weekend, and if this pace doesn’t seem workable, people should cry chicken as early as Monday, February 8.
Lastly, the off-topic discussions were also productive. Here are the links to the tools mentioned in passing during last night’s meetup:
