CocoaHeads.org is an international group devoted to discussion of Apple's Cocoa Framework for programming on macOS and iOS. During monthly meetings, members present on their projects and offer tutorials on various programming topics.
We are the CocoaHeads Aachen Chapter, hosted by the Media Computing and Human-Computer Interaction Group at RWTH Aachen University. We get together for informal short talks and demos, have a pizza, and talk code.
We usually get together on the last Thursday of each month at 7 PM in room 2222 (see below for directions).

We have organized a few NSCoder Night events in Aachen and Cologne recently. These are entirely informal events with no presentations, just a get-together where you bring the project you're working on and talk code with others.
Currently, there are no planned events in Aachen. If you know about some meetups in the greater area, just drop us a note so we can mention them!
