Android Developers,
This Wednesday night July 25th in Alameda, we're going to have 5 break out groups, each with their own separate topic and speaker.

Each speaker will be expected to talk 30 minutes, and repeat their talk a second time that same night. You'll only have time to listen to 2 of those talks out of the 5.

6:20 - Introduction
6:30 - Break out topics (1st time slot)
7:05 - Break out topics (2nd time slot)
7:40 - Summaries
7:50 - Meeting wrap-up

Our Topics:

A. PhoneGap Development on Android - Tools and Tutorials from MDS. Mobile Developer Solutions' Libby Baldwin will give an overview of PhoneGap and how to get started developing on Android. Depending on the group, topics can range from Getting Started to a review of tutorials to a preview of Libby's latest Two-Minute Tutorial. If you're already using MDS AppLaud, bring a demo and any questions - we can discuss as a group.

B. Old School Graphics and Animation Using the Classes by Kelley Nielsen. Want to create a game or app with a retro look and feel? Do you want graphics that will run well on almost any hardware, or just feel that OpenGL is too much for your needs? Take a look at the Android drawing primitives, and see how much they can do.

C. Using Adobe Air for Cross-Platform Development & the Business Aspect of Publishing on the iPhone App Store vs. the Android Markets by Edward. Edward has published 71 apps on the Apple App Store and 8 apps on the Android Market.

D. Learn How to Use Git and GitHub by me (Stephan Branczyk). This talk will cover the basics of using command-line Git with GitHub, and some of the mistakes newbies of Git, like myself, usually make.

E. Developing an Android Client Application with a Ruby on Rails Restful Interface by Alex Bush.
