Leaving the Northeast and going to the South, due to the success of the first CocoaHeads in Porto Alegre (the enrollment list went over 90 people), the organization has already tried to prepare the second edition of the meeting in the city. The date of the 11/27 event and the location will be the same as the first meeting (hall of the RBS group, inside Tecnopuc).
There, the interested parties will follow two lectures on the experience in building the applications of the RBS group and on the new programming language Swift (entering the functional programming). More information about the event can be found at this link.
Ricardo Rauber, one of the organizers of CocoaHeads and instructor of the Swift course launched by PUCRS on iTunes U, informed us that very soon all classes will be on air with English subtitles and everything, in order to expand the reach of the content .
