Android project meetup

A project came across my desk the other day that I thought would be great for us to work on. I already have the project spec'd out. I have the project broken up into about 8 10-hour tasks. If anyone is interested in getting some real world experience on a production ready android app, then bring your laptop and let's get work.

The goal of this meeting will be to get introduced to the project, get everyone setup on the repository and assign tasks.

ALL SKILL LEVELS WELCOME!

We can meet at my office. There are plenty of paid parking in the area $3-$7. The Padres are away that day.

Bring a couple of dollars if you want to go in on a pizza.

I know coming downtown is a pain, so I'll also setup a G+ Hangout for those that can't make it.

If you are planning on joining the G+ Hangout, make sure you follow me so I can invite you to the Hangout.

 

Prep work:

If you haven't already, try to get your dev environment setup.   We will be using Eclipse.  Here is a tutorial to get your environment setup.  We will also be using the Google Code Repository and SVN for version control.  You can find a tutorial on how to set it up here.  I'll give you the access to the project during the meetup.  Just get the Svn Repository Explorer installed for now.

    Nobody showed up, ok, 4 out of the 17 who registered did. The project is ho-hum, and Bryan wasn't a very motivational project leader. I like the idea of teaming up with others to produce Android apps, and I'd do it for free, if I felt it was for a good cause.

    How does one send his email address to you without posting it here? Kept getting BSOD when trying to create a Hangout. Found out my webcam software needed updating... :-(

      I'm sorry but all of the hours are allocated for this project. I'll contact you with the next.

    Hello all. Chiming in little late to this but interested in finding about the project but can't make it up there tonight. Is there a G+ event for this meeting? If all the spots are covered, would be interested in other projects or future phases.

    Like Diane, also finished up last quarter of Android at UCSD Extension. Wanna exercise the new skillz :D on a real project.

  • Diane C.

    Woohoo, a *real* project! (I'm serious, not sarcastic)
    Hope I can be of some help - I learn fast but have only one marginally useful quarter of Android programming at UCSD extension.

    Ok, maybe I'll catch the next one then. I've got my own personal projects that are already live, and profitable that I need to iterate on.

    August 1, 2012

  • David S.

    I'll chip in for pizza (pepperoni, sausage)

  • Bryan

    Sorry, I'm still trying to figure out how to join my work and personal G+ accounts. Please join this one: https://plus.google.com/u/1/111869830854812349395

    Also THIS app will not be profitable (at least in phase 1). I have a plan to get us future work that would be paid, but I first need to see how effectively the team works together.

  • Diane C.

    I will eat before the meeting.

    August 1, 2012

  • Christopher P.

    I just read the description. What type of app will this be, and will there be profit sharing? If not, count me out on this one. I was hoping to learn something new.

  • Christopher P.

    Hi Bryan, which page would you like us to follow? You have two.

    August 1, 2012

  • Bryan

    Also if everyone can follow me on G+. I plan on sharing Google Docs with everyone involved. https://plus.google.com/s/bryan%20paijit

    Can I get a headcount on who is willing to kick down a couple of dollars for pizza? I don't want to order 100 pizzas if everyone is going to eat before the meetup. We have plenty of drinks available already.

    Just added you on google+ but don't see the event on there. also you have two profiles, maybe I added the wrong one?

    August 1, 2012

  • Bryan

    My G+ link is in the description. But it's here it is again: https://plus.google.com/s/bryan%20paijit

    Is there a link to your profile on g+?

  • Bryan

    Anyone that is planning to join the hangout make sure I get you added to my developers circle on G+.

    July 30, 2012

  • Bryan

    I've updated the invite to include some prep work for you to do BEFORE the meetup. This will save time so we can get to the fun stuff.

    I'd like to join, but I'm on business travel until Wednesday night, so my attendance will have to be G+ (just due to time constraints). I'll look for you Bryan on G+...

    July 26, 2012

  • Marty W.

    Interested, but I have a conflict for Wednesday. I can probably attend most of a G+ hangout event. Sounds like fun.

    July 25, 2012

  • Bryan

    Roughly 8 - 10 people.

    July 25, 2012

    So this project would be for 8 people?

  • Diane C.

    I have only taken one quarter of Android programming at UCSD, so I hope I can be useful, too.

    July 24, 2012

  • Bryan

    There are a couple of tasks that are less time consuming than others. I'm sure we can find something that you could fit in. Even if it's only an hour or two.

    July 24, 2012

  • Sean P.

    I have not built a complete Android app yet, but I have been trying to learn the development process and environment in my (little) free time. I don't think I'll be able to contribute much, but can I sit in and watch the development process?

    July 24, 2012

  • Bryan changed the date and time from Wednesday, July 25, 2012 at 7:00 PM to Wednesday, August 01, 2012 at 7:00 PM
