NS Manchester

Monday 6th February, 7:00pm

  • NS Manchester are a group of people in the Manchester area with an interest in iOS or Mac Development. There’s no requirement to be an expert, all you need is to have an interest, so why not come along and join the discussions. Meetups are held on the first Monday of the month and everyone is welcome.

    February meetup:

    This month there are two speakers leading the group:

    – The Windows Bridge for iOS

    – Mike Irving

    The Windows Bridge for iOS is a Microsoft open-source project that provides an Objective-C development environment for Visual Studio and support for iOS APIs.

    In this talk, Mike Irving will provide an overview of the bridge, and walk through installing the tooling, converting an actual iPhone App and running it upon Windows, and discussing pitfalls and problems that may occur along the way.

    The bridge is ideal for iOS developers looking to bring their existing Objective-C applications over to the Windows Platform.
