Hi, I am interested in working on iPhone projects and am looking for other like-minded people. I am very familiar w/ the iPhone SDK and would not mind helping other people get started w/ it, as well. If there's anyone looking to work on iPhone apps for fun or profit, please get in touch.

I'm primarily interested in native app development. I banged out an iUI-based project and it does have its benefits--cross-compatible, easy/fast to develop for. However, the iPhone SDK is where it's at. :-)

I think someone on the Honolulu Coders mailing list is trying to work out a meeting. And, I was talking to the HMAUS people about sharing my experiences coding for the iPhone. However, I don't know if I should talk about basic iPhone programming, or whether I should talk about something a little more advanced. For example, I put together a slippy map (i.e. Google Map functionality) application 5-6 months ago to see what was involved. Primarily, because the Map Framework is private and Google won't even let you use their map tiles. I still have the code lying around and I'd be happy to share/talk about it, but it wouldn't make sense if more people were interested in getting their feet wet.

Hi Kelvin,

I'm actually working on iPhone Development. Stuff is a little hush-hush at the moment, but more than willing to get together with others interested in iPhone Apps SDK and such.

Out of curiosity, are you looking at natively running apps, or iphone web apps as well. Can't forget that's an option as well for some companies.

Go for advanced.

There are too many "intro to XYZ" demonstrations/discussions/etc. If anybody wants an intro, they can go to the web page and get it. I think you should show off your experience with the platform and give people a taste of what can be done. If you occasionally need to explain something at a beginner level during your talk or if people ask clarifying questions during, that's fine. Also, a Q&A session at the end can fill in the holes if people don't understand something.

You might even warn everybody to look up a few concepts or read a web page beforehand as background info. I think intermediate and advanced level talks make the community stronger.
That's a pretty good point. Personally, I do like the more advanced topics myself and seeing the goal is always more enticing than the start. I probably should start putting that map tile server for the client back together. :-)

I am a registered iphone developer. I'm currently working on my first iphone game with cocos2d (an extended framework for iphone OpenGL development). I'd really like to get together with other iphone developers in honolulu hawaii to brainstorm and discuss development practices, maybe even share some tips, recommend good books and resources, etc. Please count me in if you ever get a group together. I checked with HMAUS.org to see if they have anything going on. Still waiting to hear back from them. Very interested in attending any talk on advanced iphone development.

Hi David,

I'm going to go to the Manoa Geeks meetup, tonight. And, I'm also going to see if I can put together an iPhone workshop for HMAUS' Spring event. (So, I'm looking for panelists for that, as well.) In any case, I'll keep you in the loop.

Aloha Kelvin!

Would love to learn more about iPhone app development! Let's connect!

Hi,

I'm going to start a discussion list for iphone/mobile development (+ a meetup) and I was wondering where I should create it. Google/Yahoo groups? Or, is there a way to do something on TechHui? Right now I'm leaning towards creating a Google Group, but I figure I'd ping TechHui before I made a unilateral decision.

Any suggestions are welcome, so please fire away. :-)

Hi Kelvin. We have a mobile development group and all members have permission to create events in the calendar. Additionally, we are happy to give you space to meet.

Hi Daniel,

I was thinking about using TechHui for the communication channel. However, is there a way to create discussion where the interaction is more like email (preferably w/ some archiving at TechHui)? i.e. I can read the messages in my email and reply directly.

Other than that, thanks a lot for your offer. Hopefully, I'll be able to take you up on it, sooner than later.

-Kelvin
No problem. We just set up a mobiledev@techhui.com mail list for you. We pre-populated it with all the members from the Mobile Developers group.

That's awesome. Thanks. :-)
Kelvin,

Just checking, has there been any progress in creating the iphone development group? I'm planning to release my app next week.
