iPhone Developer Night #2
August 19th, 2010 | Connor Turner

Last month during “my state of the site post”:http://www.yycapps.com/2010/07/29-apps-growing-a-yycapps-update/, I promised to work harder to help promote some of the grassroots meet-ups happening within the Calgary iPhone Development community.

So for all you local developers out there, Big Stack Studios, the makers of Sigma and Dawn of Night, are hosting the second iPhone Developer Night on August 25th. Last month’s meet-up was such a success that they are back at it again, but this time everyone will be given the chance to demo their in progress or finished games to the everyone in attendance. Then afterwards, people will be heading out for a few drinks and some less informal conversations.

If you want to get involved or attende, you’ll have to join the iPhone Developers group on LinkedIn and respond to the iPhone Developer Night #2 thread.

So if you’re just looking to connect with other developers or want to demo your latest project, make sure you mark next wednesday down in your calendar.

July 10th, 2010 | Connor Turner

Things have been quite busy for yycApps.com over the past few months, so we thought we’d send you a quick little update on the growth of this site, the development of the Developers page, and the growth of the community in general.

The first big news is that we’re finally starting to catch-up on the massive back log of Apps that we’ve recieved from the Calgary iPhone Development Community. As you can see from our recent posts, we’re slowly working on adding new reviews, but more importantly we’ve add 29 apps to our Calgary Developed Apps page.

The listed apps include everything from major local app successes (Sigma, Tapforms, Own This World) to small independently developed apps (Birthdays, myDomains, XForm) to everything in between (Stylmee, Poker Genius, Beefy Boards, etc.,).

The apps that have currently been added are:

Time to clear the calendar kiddies, because this Saturday Robots & Pencils is organizing Calgary’s second iPhone DevCamp. If you didn’t have the opportunity to check out the first one, I’d highly recommend clearing off your schedule for Saturday.

yycApps is Born
February 17th, 2010 | Connor Turner

Guess what Calgary, we’ve launched!

Yes, yycApps.com is now live. After an amazing three week turn-around, from concept to web site, we’re are now officially launched.

For those unfamiliar with the concept of the site, yycApps.com is essentially a one-stop shop for information on all the local iPhone Apps developed right here in Calgary. This site has been created to review, promote and foster a stronger iPhone development community. It is here to help leverage everyone’s civic pride and let regular Calgarians know what’s going on in the community. A vehicle for the common Calgarian to find out about the latest iPhone Apps and our successes. If you want to learn more about the site’s goals please check out the about yycApps page.
