I was surprised recently to see how many groups are starting up around iPhone development in the Orlando area. I’ll compile my list into a page and see how it works out.
I’ve attended two meetings and enjoyed both greatly. The levels of focus, curiosity, and participation were great. The discussions of just development challenges in general were also very good.
- NSCoder Orlando (site twitter) – meets every Tuesday
- Mac & iPhone Developer Meetup (site twitter) -
- Orlando Cocoa-Heads (site twitter) – 2nd Tuesdays suggested, but still variable
The Panera’s restaurant downtime for the Mac & iPhone meetup group was pretty tough to find parking near, so go with a little extra time for that. Maybe take $5 or so in cash if you have to pay for a parking space. That Panera’s does close at 8:30 pm. While they are very gracious to people lingering, you won’t be able to get in or buy anything after that.
If you are more interested in a group for simply using the iPhone, check out the meetings of the Florida Macintosh Users Group. All the meetings wind up talking about iPhones at some point, but some will have different focus.
