You probably heard about Corona, no not the beer, the virus. Of course we like organising and hosting meetups but we also care about everyone's health. It's therefore that we together with ABN AMRO have decided to postpone the upcoming meetup on Wednesday 18 March 2020. ABN AMRO have agreed to host a meetup later this year.

Furthermore, we are excited that ABN AMRO has extended their sponsorship of CocoaHeadsNL for another year. Our financial sponsors make it possible for us to buy equipment, rent locations, buy food/drinks and host our own meetups like the WWDC Viewing Party and our annual Christmas event.

Instead of a regular meetup on Wednesday 18 March 2020, we have decided to turn it into our first online-only streaming meetup. Instead of attending physically, you can only attend online on our regular YouTube Channel ( and watch the live stream ( We will even open the YouTube chat and possibly a Slack channel to ask questions to our speakers.

UPDATE: We have one talk for you at our first ever online-only meetup. Antoine van der Lee will give his talk "Asynchronous programming with operations in Swift" from his living room! You can ask him questions during or after his talk in our #meetups Slack channel ( The talk starts at the regular meetup time of 19:00 hrs CET.

Unfortunately, due to the special circumstances with the corona virus our scheduled second speaker Jon Reid had to cancel at the very last moment. Due to the very limited number of flights still available to the USA he was forced to leave earlier than planned. Jon will present at a future CocoaHeadsNL Online meetup.

We invite you to join in live for our first ever online-only meetup. The live stream will be available on this URL: Or watch the edited video later on our YouTube channel or tvOS app.

It's very unlikely that our scheduled meetup for April at will go ahead. So we are looking at hosting another online-only meetup but we will inform you about that in the near future.

Looking forward to seeing you all tuning in or at our other meetups soon!
