    I recently explored to use app builder service and started to build a simple app by myself without coding (just drag and drop). They also provide back-end service connections and I think it is pretty a good news for me as a non-programmers. I am not sure of the app performance. Can you give me some insights about it?

    You can check these app builder service from here: http://blog.mobpartner.com/2013...­

    Thanks!

      This is my take... Very nice people... seemed to be quite knowledgeable. Its completely possible that I missed the point of the meeting. Seemed to be too much emphasis on getting nametags taped to people, getting on the website to post the exact time that people arrived, etc. Everybody talking at once, questions were asked that started to get answered but then randomly interrupted. Pretty unfocused overall. My expectations / suggestions after one meeting should not be taken into account since I do not really know what the objective of this type of meeting is exactly.

      Going to do a short presentation. About 20 minutes for a quick demo and some time afterwards for questions. All I need is my laptop and the projector plus screen so I can go as soon as those are set up.

    Martin Martinez http://meetup.com/OCAndroid/mem...­ attendance & review of this.
    *Meetup should have automatically made him a YES as one of our event hosts but for some reason he was missing
    *So now I added him.
    *Martin should be the primary one overseeing the running of this meeting according to our agenda
    **-Lucy suggested this to me right after (yesterday's meeting http://meetup.com/OCAndroid/eve...­ ), seeing he's ready for it now, and Martin seemed to be agreeable.
    **Of course I & other leaders will be assist & guide him, especially since this will be his first time doing so.
    **Consequently, unlike prior meetings where Martin has typically come notably late, it's especially important this time Martin be early (say at least 10 minutes before normal event start time).
    **Consequently, it's important for Martin to study up in advance on our agenda http://1.JotHere.com/967#M0T2P6­ .

    March 29, 2013

    • DestinyArchitect

      *Martin arrived at ~6:00pm. We're now busy setting things up.

    never missed 1 in at least a year!

  • DestinyArchitect

    PRE-MEETING ESPECIALLY FOR LEADERS (plus future leaders & those who just want to help are also welcome).
    *This will be our 1st.
    *Will most conveniently take place at the same venue, just before the meeting, per leader Martin's suggestion of this and that he can make this time & place.
    *These are to cover admin only group leaders can really do, especially processing our many member applications (beyond our 245 members, we've got 116 applied & pending!).
    *This pre-meeting will start as soon as I get there (~5:30pm), so will be short (~30min) but future ones may be 1 to 2hours.
    *As always, bring your laptops & devices to make full use of any idle time

    KEY STUFF TO BRING FOR THIS MTG THIS EVE 6pm-10pm. Quoting from our agenda http://1.JotHere.com/967#M3BB40­ as this cannot be said enough, quote:
    M3BB40: Key stuff to bring:
    MJGNGL:Bring your devices for accessing Meetup & portable Internet if you have it.
    M6VJ4I:DEFINITELY BRING YOUR LAPTOP –VERY IMPORTANT, including for posting questions & announcements, RSVPing for & suggesting future events & topics, and web research.
    M6VJ2P:Bring ALL DEVICES you may want to work on and/or have questions about..
    M0SVG5:If programming or learning-to, BRING YOUR HARDWARE & SOFTWARE for coding/developing (your laptop+mobile devices+hookup cables)
    M0TCJ6: If you don’t yet have the software (as Android IDE) installed, that’s fine, as we provide it and help you install it during our meeting (at least in OCAndroid).

    I've been at most recent meetings but have an unavoidable conflict tonight. See y'all in May.

    April 25, 2013

    • Martin M.

      Administrative question. Who has projector and screen? I thought Lucy had screen.

      April 25, 2013

    • DestinyArchitect

      Just saw this cmt. Yes, I've gotten it from her, plus the stand, & will bring it. Thanks much for your prep thinking & post here. But, yes, this will not always be possible, so ANYONE ALSO HAVE A PROJECTOR, SCREEN, STANDS WE COULD USE FOR THESE OUR MAIN MEETINGS? -if so Reply here and please bring it, as we cd always use a backup and need to check it out beforehand (as at this meeting, & notably before we're really depending on it).

      April 25, 2013

  • DestinyArchitect

    USER TRAINING & USER LEADERS.
    *Everyone, we don't have other active USER LEADERS at the moment (besides Lucy, who can't make this meeting http://meetup.com/OCAndroid/eve...­ ) and we do aim for 2+ leaders for every job (to handle these situations & more); so PLEASE VOLUNTEER OR NOMINATE SOMEONE TO BE A USER LEADER FOR US (just Reply on this thread); like all our leader jobs, u don't need to be an expert at anything, u just need to lead; and the work load is nominal --you mostly just have to show up & help users.
    *Even in Lucy's absence,for those interested, with the help of our developers, WE CAN STILL RUN AT THIS MEETING OUR (All-level at-your-own-pace in-person group training) OF USERS via Lucy's Android user syllabus she created for us for this task http://1.JotHere.com/4080#MKDTT...­ and announced http://1.JotHere.com/4080#MKDU5...­ in our last Main mtg meeting) -thanks, Lucy!

    For any developers I will give a Synopsis of the last two Meetups I attended. PhoneGap allows development for multiple Mobile platforms (i.e. Android, iPhone/iPad, Windows Phone, etc.)
    OCJUG presentation was on Sonic as part of a Java Analysis tool set.
    Plan to do a quick review and explain relevance to Android.

    April 20, 2013

    • DestinyArchitect

      *Really great you're offering this, Martin. Great initiate! I will shortly list it on our meeting overview as http://1.JotHere.com/...­ and in our event title if space there.
      *The PhoneGap you attended would appear be what you announced here as thread http://meetup.com/OCA...­ -it's always appreciated link to whatever's being mentioned if possibly not obvious; and yes, like most commenting systems, it's possible for Meetup event comments: I unearth the system & reveal how in http://1.JotHere.com/...­ .

      April 25, 2013

    • DestinyArchitect

      *The OCJUG Meeting, specifically the presentation done 2013.04.11, is at http://meetup.com/OCA...­ (by our member Trey Hyde http://meetup.com/OCA...­ , "Topic: Managing debt with static analysis and Sonar, PMD, FindBugs, etc")
      **In the event listing's comments you will also find some other comments (on extensions of the presentation) in other threads (search say for "Sonar" and "Martin").
      *Per "attendance overall" http://meetup.com/OCA...­ , well-attended w/14 people.
      *From OCAndroid, our members Martin, myself, Chris, & Trey attended;
      *also Martin & I were event listing leaders, insuring all the key meeting details, before+during+after, got on the listing.
      *Be sure to RSVP now for our next 1 at http://meetup.com/OCA...­ ; if MAYBE, say YES & explain.

    • DestinyArchitect

      Great relevant post, Martin. Thank much for posting it! :-) Next times, especially since this is event already scheduled (not hosted by us) rather than just posting it here which gets maybe 10% of the exposure, post it as new re-listing on our group: any member can do this via on our Home page, "SCHEDULE A NEW MEETUP"; also you as group leader have the ability to email it out (but good idea to get the group Head (as my) approval first). And other group leaders are here to help you any member with this.

    FACEBOOK TRANSFORMATION OF ANDROID DEVICES, announced April 5, might be a good topic to cover. I can't demo it, not being on Facebook, but would like to see what it looks like.

    April 7, 2013

    • Martin M.

      However, Facebook has created their own Mobile OS to compete with Android.

      April 7, 2013

    • Martin M.

      Correcting myself. Facebook Home is NOT a complete OS but is designed to be run on top of Android. More than an App but less than an OS.
