CocoaNuts iOS Developers

As of spring 2017, CocoaNuts meets on Thursdays from 6:30 to 8:30 PM in room 2124 of the Thomas M. Siebel Center for Computer Science. Our meetings are purposely structured so that they don't build on material from previous meetings. If you miss a meeting, you can jump right back in without falling behind.
