November 02, 2008 — meetup, iphone
We’ve just finalized the agenda for our November meetup, and I’m excited about the lineup. In addition to our regular great hosting from the http://www.tipsgroup.comTIPS Group, http://www.morgenthaler.comMorgenthaler Ventures will be sponsoring food, and we have a great lineup of talks that spans the iPhone universe:
- Ken Gullicksen from Morgenthaler Ventures will present advice from a venture capital perspective for building businesses on the iPhone.
- Bill Westerman will present “How People Really Use the iPhone”, a deep and very relevant study of design issues and recommendations for people designing software for the iPhone. See what Apple got right – and not so right – and what we can learn from that to make our own apps better.
Space is limited, so RSVP at http://softwaredev.meetup.com/92/calendar/8872509/meetup.com.

Together with Ben Stiglitz, I’m organizing the Silicon Valley iPhone Developer’s Meetup.

If you’d like to join us, please email me for details (tim at neontology dot com).
The dinner will be Monday 3/31 at 7pm in Palo Alto. RSVP by email for the location.

Thanks everyone for http://softwaredev.meetup.com/92/calendar/7766207another great meetup. http://www.mikemace.comMichael Mace hit it out of the park with an incredibly informative and interactive presentation in front of a probing audience: I’m sure everyone lost count of the questions he was asked, and they all seemed to fit the flow of his presentation. Great presentation, great audience.
From the announcements, here is my list of important events for iPhone developers in the SF Bay area:

September 17, 2007 — nu, ruby, meetup, speaking
A reminder: I’ll be giving a preview of Nu at the SF Ruby Meetup tomorrow night.
Since time is limited, it will mostly be a demo session. I’m planning to show some of the things that I did at C4 , talk a bit about my reasons for writing Nu, show a couple of small random examples, and then close with a fun multithreaded desktop app.
July 22, 2008 — iphone, meetup
At the end of last night’s iPhone Developers’ Meetup we had a brainstorming session to make a list of hot topics that we would like to see presented at future meetups. If you are an expert on any of these topics or want to study up and become one, consider sharing that with us at a future meetup.
We usually meet on the third Monday of the month: August 18, September 15, and so on… Feel free to post more suggestions in the comments and email me (tim at neontology dot com) if you want to get on the list to present.
Here’s our list of topics:

August 16, 2007 — nu, ruby, meetup, speaking
Bosco gave me some time to talk about Nu at the SF Ruby Meetup.
BRIDGES and BEYOND – Tim Burks will present the latest twist on his RubyObjC bridge, a new language written specifically to be a glue language for Objective-C. In a lot of ways it’s like Ruby, but in one important way, it’s Lisp. You might say that it’s “Ruby with Parentheses”, but it’s called Nu, and it’s not just for the desktop. We’ll take an in-depth look at a blog server written in Nu that has a built-in Objective-C webserver, a Nu page templating engine, and an ActiveRecord-style ORM based on Apple’s CoreData framework.
