This Wednesday Oct 5th, Jim Soper will do a presentation on porting an app from iOS (& desktop app) using Phone Gap on Android and Adobe Air. And we will be holding a nice raffle for 3 complimentary All Access Passes to the Open Android Conference in San Francisco on Oct 9 - Oct 11 (each a $1,695 value, thanks to O'Reilly).
We'll also give away two free tickets to the Game Hackday in Palo Alto on Saturday, Oct 15th (just click here and scroll down to see their Game Hackday agenda and possible prizes you could win).
There will also be food sponsored by RIM (Blackberry), plus they'll give us a 10 minutes presentation on their new Android Player.
He says: It took 3 weeks to do the port - with no experience using the Android SDK and little experience with Java or Eclipse.
Jim keeps a blog called webkitworks.com and wrote the following articles.
- About WebKit- the theory about portability across platforms targeting WebKit
- iOS to Android- differences between iOS devices and Android
- iOS to Android (2)- about the actual implementation experience: how did it go and what problems did we encounter?
As to the rest of the agenda, there is still some room left. If you'd like to speak on a small topic, or know someone who would like to. Please contact me at[masked] (Stephan). We'll be glad to have you.
As to the raffle, we'll be raffling off 3 free All Access Passes to the Open Android Conference. Each pass will be good for the two preceding workshops on Sunday Oct 9th, five Bookshelf ebooks, and also for the Conference itself on Monday Oct 10th and Tuesday Oct 11th.
By the way, you'll have to decide whether you can use those complimentary passes before you leave our meetup, and if you can't, at least give them to someone else (there is no transferring them after that night).
We're meeting in the large conference room on the ground floor of the library (just walk to the back past the coffee shop and look in conference room A or B).
