When you arrive at the Apple Store let one of the store employees know you are there for CocoaHeads and they will let you into the back where you can come up to the second floor briefing room space. If you are having any trouble feel free to call MikeZ’s cell (267-563-0616)
We’ll have pizza and refreshments available. If you would like some please RSVP on Meetup for a proper head count and plan to donate $5-10 depending on your appetite.
For folks who drive in and need parking one lot recommend by the store is from Patriot Parking on Chancellor Street.

iBeacon in Retail, Jay Ashmen
Apple Systems Engineer Jay Ashmen will present and demonstrate iBeacon as it would apply in a retail setting. Catch a rare glimpse of this technology in action, then discuss ways it could apply to your work.
Bluetooth Low Energy, Nate Symer and Kostas Nasis
Nate and Kostas will share some work they have been doing with Bluetooth Low Energy and can talk a little bit about that and more broadly about building iOS apps that communicate with custom hardware (for example, wearable tech, key fobs, etc).
PhillyCocoa is a Philadelphia area Mac and iPhone programming group, a chapter of the worldwide CocoaHeads. All skill levels are welcome. The only requirement is an interest in Apple-related technologies and moderate tolerance for geeking out.
The main CocoaHeads group meeting is the second Thursday of every month. We also usually have a hackday one Saturday a month. For more on our events see our Meetup page:
We are always looking for feedback and suggestions on what topics to discuss at our meetings. Please reach out if you have any comments.
