Cocoa Dev House Texas

Grab your spurs and your debugger.


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.
