Hawaii iOS Developer Meetup – Session 54

Apple Push Notifications are intimidating if you haven’t done it before. There’s certificate signing requests and a lot of boilerplate code. But if you set them up a few times the process is a lot less intimidating. I suppose it’s like that for anything you do. Do it enough and it’ll eventually start to be easy.

During this meetup I went through the Ray Wenderlich Push Notifications Tutorial. I cut the stream after we finished the introductions because this meetup required me to share my Apple Developer account page and I did not want to stream that to the entire internet.

Once I finished up the tutorial, we had a chance to sit around and discuss iOS programming. Jordan attended and asked questions about the best ways to get started on a project. I felt his pain.

I’ve been programming iOS for nearly 10 years and a strange thought comes up – “Where do I even begin?” I thought the most helpful thing to do was to share some podcasts and video tutorials.

Here are the podcasts I shared:

On April 5th O’Neil will be presenting on Core Data. Please RSVP you’re interested in attending the next meetup.
