    Thanks for coming last week everyone! I'm at AnDevCon currently and I'll be giving an expanded version of the Emulator talk from the last meetup, as well as one about Android to Glass. I hope some of you made it out to the Google Glass Office Hours and Design Sprint we announced at the meetup.

    Big thanks to Jared Alexander who presented about WearScript! He made his presentation available to us at: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1W56LRv0MQuW0LOWRwSF9xOZgZuARKNl3PsKWQTJGkBQ/edit#slide=id.g1822c3ceb_2_18 He also said that you could ask him follow-up questions at [masked]

    We'll be meeting up again in a few weeks on Wed June 18th, where what we learned (a few of our regular attendees are here) at AnDevCon. Also we'll have our regular discussion about Android Development. I really enjoyed the discussion we had last week.

    Cheers,
    Louie

    Hey everyone, I mentioned that I would post some instructions for speeding up the emulator. Louie, feel free to repost/fax this wherever you want. Here are the steps:

    0)This will only work if you have an Intel CPU (not AMD)

    1)Enable virtualization in BIOS

    2)Open "Android SDK Manager" in Eclipse

    3)Under the API(s) you want (say, Android 4.4.2 API 19) select "Intel x86 Atom System Image" and install it. Under Extras at the bottom select and install "Intel x86 Emulator Accelerator (HAXM)"
    If you are not able to download anything you may need to run Eclipse as an administrator.

    4)Install the driver. You'll find it at \adt-bundle-xxx\sdk\extras\intel\Hardware_Accelerated_Execution_Manager\IntelHaxm.exe

    5)Open "Android VD Manager" in Eclipse

    6)Start or edit a virtual device

    7)Set your CPU/ABI to "Intel Atom (x86)"

    8)Under "Emulation Options" click "Use Host GPU"

    9)Feel free to let me know if you have any problems.

    Just a reminder that we're meeting tonight at 7pm. Jared will be talking about WearScript. I'll probably give a short talk too about what's new in the Android Emulator space. And let's all talk about Android dev. See you there!
    If anyone has any problems with the door or has any questions, feel free to give me a call at[masked]

    Something has come up, but I will try to make it... I really want to! If anything, I will be late to the MeetUp. In case I cannot make it, are the slides or pertaining info being shared online? Thank you!

      It starts at 7pm Eastern. Maybe the email had a timezone issue. Thanks for asking!
