About CocoaHeads

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.
