Tampa iOS Meetup on Tuesday, February 28: A “How to make a Magic 8-Ball” workshop

by Joey deVilla on February 7, 2017

At the next Tampa iOS Meetup, you’ll learn how to make a Magic 8-Ball app…

…and an executive decision-maker app…

…and a fortune cookie app…

…because under the hood, they’re all the same thing!


Learn how to write your own apps for iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, and Apple Watch at Tampa iOS’ Meetup, the Tampa Bay area’s meetup for beginning programmers and developers new to iOS development. Our next session — the one where we’ll cover writing Magic 8-Ball/executive decision-maker/fortune cookie apps — will take place on Tuesday, February 28th, 2017 at 6:30 p.m. at Wolters Kluwer’s Westshore office (1410 North Westshore Blvd, suite 400). This meetup is free to attend.

The meetup will have two parts:

  1. The presentation, where we’ll cover the concepts you’ll need to write a Magic 8-Ball/executive decision-maker/fortune cookie, followed by
  2. The workshop, where we’ll actually code a Magic 8-Ball/executive decision-maker/fortune cookie app using the concepts covered in the presentation.

The meetup works best if you bring a Mac laptop with the current version of Xcode (the tool we’ll use to develop iOS apps) installed. If you don’t have one, don’t worry; you don’t need one for the presentation part, and we can form teams for the workshop.

For more details about our upcoming meetup and to sign up to attend, visit our event page.

Tampa iOS Meetup wouldn’t be possible without the help of Wolters Kluwer, who are providing us with the space for the meetup, as well as food and drinks. For their kindness and generosity, I salute them with a filet mignon on a flaming sword!
