The Week Ahead at the Leslie eLab

Hi everybody!

I hope you are all transitioning well from the wonderful, sunny fall into the cold (but not less wonderful) early winter! If you are dreading those cool gusts of wind and the cold air, why not come into the Leslie eLab and enjoy a hot cup of coffee or tea and incubate your ideas for a business? Maybe you can invent a new tech-integrated, warmth-generating  garment?

In any case, make sure to not miss our exciting events this week that certainly help you start up right!

Learn iOS Development with Swift
6:00pm - 8:00pm
Learn Swift from the experts from Happy Fun Corp. This course is for individuals new to the App development language by Apple.
Swift is an innovative new programming language for Cocoa and Cocoa Touch. Writing code is interactive and fun, the syntax is concise yet expressive, and apps run lightning-fast. Swift is ready for your next iOS and OS X project — or for addition into your current app — because Swift code works side-by-side with Objective-C.
