Our January Meeting will be on Android ; Mike Wolfson is coming back to town to visit family and has agreed to talk give two talks on the Android platform. He's been doing Android Development and is on the speaking circuit at the Android conferences.

What topics would you like to see at our DJUG meetings?

I'll start the discussion with some recent topics I saw and related topics at the Fall 2011 No Fluff Just Stuff Conference:

Seven Steps to Learning Grails - Tim Berglund
Functional Thinking - Neal Ford
Build Your Own Technology Radar - Neal Ford
Economic Games in Software Projects - Matthew McCullough
Gradle: Bringing Engineering Back to Builds - Matthew McCullough and TIm Berglund
Busy Java Developer's Guide to Java 7 (maybe have AKKA for the other talk) - Ted Neward
More talks on NOSQL - Tim Berglund gave a couple in October.
Automated testing tools and techniques for JavaScript - Venkat Subramanian

HTML 5 Overview / REST 1 / REST II - Brian Sletten

One that I saw mentioned but not sure there was a session on:
How Gaming Theory applies to Software Development

What about GWT? Any interest in talks on that?
What about other frameworks?
Anything you want to see that people are using?

Build Your Own Technology Radar - Neal Ford
A Tech Radar overview coupled with Thought Works perspectives would be awesome
Especially since I know that Neal would get everyone;s head into the game.

Working hard on my interactive Tech Radar builder and survey tool with polar coordinate and table views.
Written in the D3.js JavaScript library. Hope to push to GitHub soon.
Only need to complete the REST interface for acquiring, compiling and analyzing the survey data from every
DJUG DOSUG & BJUG member.
Stimulating audience viewpoints and participation is woven in the survey process
Also have plans to use Tech Radar to share technology trends for recruiters
