This talk will go over the current x86 devices, such as the all-new Dell Venues, Galaxy Tab[masked], as well as upcoming devices like iConsole.tv.
App developers will walk away with what they need to know, and how to best target x86 alongside ARM in their app development. More importantly, developers will gain key insights as to why targeting x86 is important, and why x86 will soon represent a large portion of the Android device ecosystem.
There will be some surprise goodies given to participants by our friends at Intel.

Fathom Creative, Inc is sponsoring the location for this Meetup. Here is information about parking around Fathom. Parking meters and time limits stop at 6:30, there are a few spots that stop at 5. There are two parking garages right on Thomas Circle, one in the Donavan Hotel and the other is right next to the CVS, both entrances are on 14th Street. Both garages are about two and a half blocks from the office – about a 5-minute walk. There is also a Whole Foods on P Street, a little closer (perhaps a good place to park if you need to some shopping prior or after the Meetup). Fathom Creative is right on 14th Street and is a grey and white building with large glass windows in the front. Press the buzzer next to the door on right hand side, as that goes upstairs to the gallery where the Meetup is held.
