2018 has been a great year to date for CocoaHeads, we've had excellent presentations volunteered each month. If you've missed any, all 22 have been published over on the Melbourne CocoaHeads "2018 Presentations" playlist over on YouTube.
A callout for speakers
Having said that, I'm calling out for more speakers to fill out the rest of 2018. Right now we have presentation spots open for all three of our remaining events. October 11, November 8 and December 13. We've got the sponsors and venue, now we just need you!
What's in a presentation?

A presentation is either a "Lightning talk" of about 5 or 10 minutes or a longer full presentation of about 20 to 25 minutes. The topic can be anything of your choosing as long as it's loosely related to iOS or macOS development. "Loosely related" is a broad term, but if you work in the industry (or are trying too!) then anything about your experiences with code, tools, designs, or just something you've learnt lately that you've found interesting. Sometimes the simpler the topic the better!
Support for speakers
Speaking at a meetup can be daunting. Involving first time speakers, new members to the group or the industry is something I'm passionate about. If you need convincing get in touch with me and I'll give you my spiel!
To support new or interested speakers we have a dedicated #speakers channel in the melbournecocoaheads slack organisation especially for discussing ideas and helping with questions, and as I said I'm keen to help anyone with ideas or queries either over email or a coffee.
Just quickly on YouTube - all of our presentations have been live streamed and published to YouTube so far this year for future reference but this is 100% optional.
