New to Android - progress thru Android MOOCs (e.g. Coursera), Pluralsight course or material covered in earlier meet ups at your own pace.
Scripted training exercises are followed by those in the training group and the dev group work together using a brief spec to create the app - there is no sample solution provided. Attendees working in a particular group are seated together.
Each person in our group has some very unique skills and experience that when shared, everyone benefits. We are aiming to building a strong, unified group which stimulates and stretches every member. With that aim in mind, two group members have agreed to make presentations:
Jon - short demo of an app - 11:30 – 12:00
Presentation 2 - Walk thru take-away app requirements and construction of product roadmap using Feature-driven development (FDD) methodology
Mike - FDD is an iterative process driven by client-valued functionality (features). The aim is of the presentation is to deliver a road map that can be used to create tangible, working software repeatedly in a timely manner. Also there will a short discussion about setting up a small limited company to develop this app and market it. 14:30 - 15:30
