Google Developers Group
Uniforum Chicago, a networking group for open systems professionals, has kindly invited me to speak about Android this coming Tuesday, 10/26, at 7 pm at the IIT-Rice campus in Wheaton. For more information on the talk, including directions, please go to:
Here's a brief abstract for the talk:
"Google's open source Android OS is rapidly gaining in popularity for devices ranging from smartphones to tablets to TV entertainment systems and more. As an open platform, Android allows users to install apps via the Android market -- and that exploding user base is hungry for compelling apps.
"This talk will provide an overview of the Android platform and ecosystem. We'll discuss a few issues in Android app development, including tips for avoiding UI gotchas and maximizing compatibility of your app across devices. We'll also discuss the Android market, the market's size, and general features. Please feel free to bring additional questions for the Q&A section."
I hope to see you there!
There might be a nominal entrance fee, but I'm not sure exactly...
