After about a year off, Pittsburgh Cocoaheads is going to be starting up again. Second thursday of the month, 7:30 – 9:30 PM, on the CMU campus (Newell-Simon Hall. Room 3000 or 3001. There will be signs pointing the way)
And for folks who don’t know about CocoaHeads, it’s an international Mac Programmer’s group. Pretty much an excuse for Mac programmers to congregate and geek out. Right now we have 20ish chapters in seven countries, two hemispheres, and four continents. Check out CocoaHeads.org for a chapter near you. If there is no local chapter, or if your local chapter hasn’t met in awhile, feel free to drop us a line and become an organizer.
CocoaHeads started in Pittsburgh several years ago when AgentM and I decided to start a Mac programmer’s group because there was nothing in the area. He came up with the name and the logo, and did a lot of evangelizing in the early days. I’m glad AgentM picked the name : I would have come up with something horrible like “Western Pennsylvania Mac Programmer’s Geeking Out And Food Eating Society”, which doesn’t quite have the groovy ring of “CocoaHeads”
