Just when you thought it was safe to pack away your PowerBooks, MacBooks, and iBooks, CocoaDevHouse is back! Organization for CocoaDevHouseTexas, which will meet in Austin, is already underway so feel free to add yourself to the list of attendees. Chris Forsythe, of Growl, Adium, and Foom Software will be giving a presentation, as well as demonstrating a new application. Second on the list of presentations is my own (R. Tyler Ballance) presentation on using the Dumbarton bridge to leverage the cross-platform power of C# (via Mono).
The event is currently scheduled for Sept. 9th, coincidentally, the same date of CocoaDevHouseLondon. We’ve got people travelling from Dallas/Plano, Houston, and San Antonio, so if you need/want to carpool, just contact one of the individuals on the current list of attendees, hope to see you there!
CocoaDevHouse is an somewhat impromptu “unconference” styled after SuperHappyDevHouse?, and BarCamp? aimed at bringing Mac developers, and other Mac enthusiasts together. CocoaDevHouseTexas is aimed at bringing as many Mac developers and enthusiasts together with good mexican food and good conversation and quite possibly, some good code. If you’re interested in “sponsoring” CocoaDevHouseTexas scroll down to the “Sponsors” section.
Austin Attractions Austin is quite literally an oasis of cool in the middle of Texas, so feel free, if you’re travelling from Dallas, or Houston, to stay overnight. Austin has great live music venues, such as Stubb’s. or Emo’s. Austin is also home to the University of Texas, and 6th street, where all the cool people of Austin hang out.
Across the street from the original CocoaDevHouse Location on 6th Street between Lavaca and Guadalupe. Awaiting final confirmation. Details to follow. Location will be posted HERE as soon as we get final approval. Check back here like every 8 minutes…

Although CocoaDevHouse is an unofficial non-profit organization, we will accept sponsorship. Sponsorship will earn you or your company the gratitude of many a Mac developer/enthusiast, as well as being linked from the CocoaDevHouseTexas page, as well as participating bloggers (i.e. when posting about CocoaDevHouseTexas, all you need to do is say “Special thanks to Company X for catering Chuy’s for the event” for example).
