Dear (Contact First Name),
Merry Christmas Everybody! Vote!
We've been preparing a grand send-off to 2012 and hope you can all attend. Have you ever thought, "There ought to be an app for that!" or "I'm sure I could do a better app than this"? It turns out that it isn't as hard as you might think, and Kevin McNeish will be with us in virtual form from the East Coast to show us how toy unlock our inner programmer. Plus we'll have shareware, seasonal pies and giveaways "up the kazoo" (which the Urban Dictionary tells me is a lot ruder than it sounds). See you in the Redwood Room on the 10th!
Meeting Agenda December 10th 2012
6:30pm Intro, catch-up, that sort of thing
7pm - 8pm Kevin McNeish - iOS App Development for Non-Programmers:Unleashing the Programmer Within
Based on the maturity of the latest iPhone and iPad App development tools released by Apple, it's finally within the reach of non-programmers to get into the rewarding work of App development. In this session you will see a demonstration of Apple's Xcode tools as an App is built while you watch. You will be amazed at how much you can do initially without writing any code. After a prototype App is built, you will see how you can learn the basic principles of Apple's Objective-C programming to create a fully functioning real-world App and unleash the programmer within!
8pm - 8:30pm Break with pies and coffee
8:30 - 9:30pm  Shareware, Raffle, AOB

All in the Redwood Room at SLAC - December 10th 2012 - see you then!
