Washington Apple Pi

A Community of Apple iPad, iPhone and Mac Users

May General Meeting

May 28, 2016, Washington Apple Pi will host Jonathan Deutsch, founder of Tumult and lead developer of Hype. Hype: it is no longer just a noun or verb.

Modern web animation featuring Tumult Hype.

Coming in June: a meeting in Maryland with Rob Pegoraro, and a separate presentation on Mac recycling.

Pi polo shirts now available

Pi Polo Shirt (PiPolo) now available for $20. For best results, pick one up at a meeting, as downloading is proving exceptionally difficult. Be the first on your block, or Metro rail car, or undersea vessel to show you are a part of this community of Mac and iOS users.

Washington Apple Pi polo shirt, now available. Though it isn't clear in the photo, the shirts are gray. For those in Britain, the shirts are grey.


Board of Directors election

Washington Apple Pi is now conducting elections for its Board of Directors. Polling is entirely electronic; please log in via the Member Services portal (https://connect.wap.org) to vote by the end of May, and help prepare Washington Apple Pi as it continues four decades of service and fellowship to the Apple, Mac, and iOS communities.

Tumult presents Hype

At the May 28 General Meeting, Tumult will show how to bring order out of hype with Hype, their software package for putting animation and video on the web. Tumult founder and lead developer Jonathan Deutsch will demonstrate how Hype can easily produce web content that can be seen on both desktops and mobile devices, without specialized programming skills or [shudder] hiring a professional web developer.

Security updates

Please take note of the latest security updates to OS X El Capitan 10.11.4 (and some dating back to OS X 10.9.5 and 10.10.5). While most Mac users are very good about installing security updates (which are, among other things, free), a surprising number of users have elaborate excuses for not being good net citizens. Practice save hex: update.
