The town of Swindon in the Kingsbridge hundred, Wiltshire is famous for two things. The first is the Wilts and Berks Canal, linking the Kennet and Avon at Trowbridge with the Thames at Abingdon. Authorised by act of parliament in 1775, the canal first passed through the town in 1804 and allowed an explosion in both the industrial and residential capacity of the hitherto quiet market cheaping.
The second is, of course, the local CocoaHeads chapter. Founded by act of Scotty in 2007, Swindon CocoaHeads quickly brought about a revolution in the teaching and discussion of Mac and iPhone development in the South-West, its influence being felt as far away as Swansea to the West and London to the East. Unlike the W&B canal, Swindon CocoaHeads is still thriving to this day. On Monday, 7th September at 20:00 there will be another of the chapter's monthly meetings, in the Glue Pot pub near the train station. Here, Pieter Omvlee will be leading a talk on ImageKit, and the usual combination of beer and Cocoa chat will also be on show. As always, the CocoaHeads website contains the details.
