Hawaii iOS Developer Meetup – Session 43

During this meetup I covered Scene Kit for creating 3D games/apps for iOS. Initially I had planned to focus on physics but at the beginning of the meetup I asked the developers what they wanted to cover and they asked to start from the beginning.

I’m glad we started from the beginning because I was able to learn a few new things. Rather, I learned how to refer to instance variables as properties. I also learned how to talk about the origin of a node, it’s position relative to the parent, and the process of getting world coordinates from that parent node coordinates.

We took the meetup a bit slower this time. I stopped along the way to take questions and a bunch of them came up. I like the crew at the meetup recently because everyone is talking and asking questions.

We only got 2/4 scene kit tutorials done. We might need to loop back around in the future to complete the tutorials. Next week I will be covering region monitoring with CoreLocation. Please RSVP if you’re interested in attending.
