July 17th General Meeting

WWDC Report

Read all about it: Apple’s latest software and hardware revelations

Each year in June, Apple holds their World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC), where they reveal to their developer community the new features that developers will be able to incorporate into their next generation software. This includes information about new and upcoming hardware; the latest versions of iOS, macOS, tvOS, and watchOS; as well as information about new software frameworks that developers will be able to use. {Think of this as Woodstock for geeks.}

This month’s meeting of the SGVAUG will feature a talk by our President telling about the things that were announced at the most recent WWDC and speculating about what this will mean for the Apple devices and software that we’ll be using in the coming years.

Regular Features

Apps & Traps – Our essential monthly feature on interesting new products and services for iOS and OS X, brought to you by Dave Whitby.

appleSTEMs – Warren James presents interesting Apple science, technology, engineering, and math software.

appleCore – Everyone says that iOS and macOS are intuitive and easy to use. If you believe that, I’ve got a bridge to sell you. Although iOS and macOS are easy to use after you’ve learned how to use them, actually learning to use them can be a bit confusing. Often, basic things are not explained because it is assumed that you already know them. We all know that that’s not always the case. So now the SGVAUG presents an on-going series of short talks about the core elements of iOS and macOS so that soon, you’ll be able to tell everyone, “Of course iOS and macOS are intuitively obvious”.
