Speaking as a co-founder of CocoaHeads, if you can’t find an established group the thing is to start one. CocoaHeads got started by emailing some programmer folks I knew would probably be interested, emailing an announcement to the leaders of the local Mac Users Groups to forward to their membership, and making a posting to the Cocoa lists. (Just one or two should be enough. I sometimes put a cocoaheads pointer into my signature when I answer questions on the lists, to help spread the word but not be obnoxious about it). We’ve managed to attract a core group of folks, and generally have a couple of new folks show up at meetings.

Anyone else in Geneva, Switzerland? I’m pretty sure the answer’s no because I’ve searched both CocoaDev and cocoa-dev and not found anyone closer than Lausanne, but there could be somebody hiding… – AngelaBrett, who just moved there and wants to meet people outside work (contact details on my page)

Howdy guys. I produce CocoaRadio and have recently started promoting CocoaDevHouse, a mission in the spirit of the Bay Area’s and BarCamp, to self-organize periodic hackathons for Cocoa and Apple enthusiasts.

This is not a replacement for user groups but a way to mobilize people with a variety of skills and interests, including UX designers, Cocoa devs, Web service (PHP/Rails) devs, and other creative types. We’ve got that sort of mix convening in Dallas for the first event which will be streamed: Chime in remotely via irc://

I emphasize: this is a grassroots effort; open to all interested folks anywhere ?la Events and info on wiki: Flickr group:

…and, of course, T-shirts are available if you’ve got room next to your Panic wardrobe ;)

Thanks. Blake AIM/GTalk: cocoaradio

The problem I see is that your site is “everywhere”. You’ve got flickr groups, google groups, regional subdivisions, etc. but you appear to have no content other than placeholders for sub-groups. To be successful, I recommend putting up some actual content that would interest Cocoa developers otherwise you’ll never draw enough people to create a community.

That said, I wish you the best of luck - the Cocoa community could do with an updated, centralized place for ‘everything’. I hope you succeed.
