September Meetup: Android (the post DroidconNYC followup!)

For those who missed https://twitter.com/DroidconNYC

or for those who still in town this Thursday and want more, we're continuing the Android festivities by featuring some speakers from DroidconNYC as well as lightning talks from our members.

Featuring DroidconNYC keynote speaker, Kevin Grant reprising his talk on Android design: 

Tumblr’s design battles (with numbers to back up the company’s claims of success), and give a call to action on the importance of building beautiful software in the era of Material Design.

Kevin Grant is an Android Engineer at tumblr, a creative blogging platform in New York City, where he focuses on application design, implementing the latest design and user interaction paradigms and pushing the boundaries of the Android framework.  He began developing for Android in 2009, performing research at the University of Nevada, Reno. After graduating he moved to Malmö, Sweden where he took part in the Scandinavian startup scene.


Also featuring TouchLab's  Patricia Estridge and Mike Nakhimovich (formerly of TouchLab):

Android Live Code - From Endpoint to Animated View - Creating Android apps from the ground up

Watch and gain insight into how TouchLab builds Android apps for some of New York's and the countries largest clients. Mike is going to begin a live code session by introducing the Android Volley Library, test driven development using Roboelectric, proper threading techniques with TouchLab's own Magic Thread's library and finally leveraging an Event Bus to pass data to the UI where Paddy will take over and introduce the brand new Android L recycler view  view animations and a few material design tips and tricks.  

Patricia (Paddy) Estridge is an Android UX Engineer at Touch Lab, New York's premier Android agency. Formerly a student of Hacker School, New York, and Google Project and Community Manager for the Middle Eastern and Emerging Markets regions. 

Mike Nakhimovich hails from the deepest darkest corners of Russia and spends his day as TouchLab's resident testing and networking expert and his nights fighting crime in Jersey City. Starting as a backend developer Mike is a huge advocate of Test Driven Development as well as proper networking techniques and hopes to bring a more structured approach to working with Data on Android.


We will also keep it open to walk up lightning talks!
