The Minnesota Chapter of the CocoaHeads User Group was founded in the Spring of 2008. Our group is a community gathering for people interested in developing software for the Macintosh, iPhone, and iPad platforms. The group was formed with the goal of bringing like-minded developers together to share experiences, insights, and techniques. Our monthly meetings are a mix of informal and interactive presentations, hands on coding, and discussion.
