Here’s what’s happening in and around The Nerdery this week, and next.
iPhone tech talks: Tuesday and Wednesday, June 29&30: Jon Rexeisen is doing tech talks on iPhone development two nights in a row at The Nerdery. Several of us are staying after school to hear from our all-things-Apple guru, and the public is welcome – please send a direct tweet to the_nerdery if you’re interested (so we can order enough pizza). Both sessions are 5:30-6:30 p.m. Tuesday’s tech talk will be a iOS 101 session covering the basics of iOS development, where to get documentation, etc. Then on Wednesday, Jon will do an iOS 4 session covering the new retina display on iPhone 4, the block APIs, Grand Central Dispatch on iOS, TapGestureRecognizers, and iAds.
