(LT36T7Alert: this listing will be drastically "shortened". As these tracks are under development, it is only long now to temporarily bring forward & together all the relevant details for leaders-especially to know, flesh-out, & review, after which the bulk of this text will be factored away into a few shared http://JotHere.com posts which this listing will simply link to, rather than have those details here.)
LT0S8Y [2nd>3rd] Wednesday of every [1>4] month[>s].
LT0SGE Time & Place picked so it won't conflict with any other group events.
(LT0NNG What: (LT1H76New meeting track: the in-person social coding-bash, Q&A, info swap, & general meetup specifically for OCAndroid's Intermediate-to-Advanced Developers (LT3AD4 Unless the event leader(s) decide to get more ambitious and their attendees agree, by default, by design: (LT3AOK presentations at this event, if any, are impromptu and done by any attendee. ) (LT3AMY attendees are free to work on other attendees projects or their own during the bulk of the event) (LT3B6X all the details of regularly running the event have already been worked) (LT3AR8 so just show up with your topic ideas & good spirit! --no special prep work is required by anyone, even the event leaders, other than showing up with necessary equipment & mood to keep you happily busy on the event topic) (LT3AVD making this an always-productive & low-stress event for everyone which is near-maximally easy to run!) ) )
(LT0OBCAgenda: (proposed) 7pm-~10pm
(LT0ODV 7:00pm-10min (LT0RMFAttendees Arrive, Check-in, and Socialize (LT0RQB Including each arrival first checks in with the person taking attendance (and checks in on the website) and makes a name-tag for him/herself.)))
(LT0OEU 7:10pm-10min (LT0RSEEvery attendee Introduces him/herself,
by going around in a circle and have each speak, as each saying say "Hi, I'm Jeff from Irvine, and an intermediate Android developer working on a replacement for Angry Birds for 6 months now and find it pretty difficult.."; and after each intro, the other attendees say "Welcome, Jeff!"))
(LT0OGG 7:20pm-20min (LT0RUAEvery attendee who desires announces any news s/he's heard and problem's s/he's having relevant to the topic, by going around in a circle and have each speak, and after each announcement the other attendees reply & discuss it))
(LT0OGS 7:40pm-1hr35min (LT0S09Full breakout-session working on the attendees' various Android projects, with every attendee: (LT0SPG helping other attendees' work on their project else working on their own project) (LT0SRB showing & asking others about problems they've been having and have solved and helping others solve their problems and reviewing & celebrating the solutions) (LT0SS2 collaboratively & individually working together.)))
(LT0OXU 9:15pm~-45min (LT0S5ZVisit a nearby good fast food joint, as Chipotle's, for a late nite snack & socializing))
(LT0OYL 10:00pm- end)

(LT2PLNAdditional Planned Listing Changes, in order
(LT33V0 This listing will soon be becoming a LOT shorter (up-front) & universal. (LT32YT Right now this listing features all the urgent initial details up-front (LT33SD especially since it's simpler to build it (flesh it out) that way initially and these need to be reviewed and developed, but as that is done) (LT33ZW but the drawback of course is this makes a fairly long listing plus tons of text which would be repeated & maintained repeated)) (LT33WI Well I'll have none of those woes! The details up-front (so would be repeated) will drastically reduce, and the listing will become more universal, as: (LT33ES virtually all of its text which repeats between its meetups will be factored out, instead replaced with just a link a http://JotHere.com post (see one at the start) giving/to-give the details that stay the same between meetups. ) (LT33H0 moreover, text which can be shared between meeting tracks will also be shared, so for instance, 2 Developer tracks & 1 User track will all share the same post giving the Agenda plus attendee criteria.) (LT33KA moreover, text which can be shared by different (Meetup groups) will also be factored out to instead refer to a single post (instead of being repeated), for instance post of the agenda for Intermediate-to-Advanced Developers' Meetups can also be used for iPhone meetings, SQL meetings, etc, not just Android)) )
(LT32HYThis listing is very important, as, becoming obvious soon, this listing is designing to be a template for a lot more event listings. (LT32T4 From most to least obvious, indeed expanding in this order, this is to be the template for: (LT32TH the events in this track) (LT32TW the events in all other specialty tracks: Intermediate+Beginner Developer, User, Hack Nights) (LT32U4 the OCAndroid General Meetings and soon all OCAndroid events (LT335OAs all OCAndroid leaders, including all incoming, will be using this listing format, so I will soon have incrementally asked all of them to post their feedback on this listing in it's LSZ1QK Additional Discussion) and discuss & incorporate that) ) (LT32UM the listings of other meetup groups subscribing to its public listing format, starting with other similar technical groups (LT33AH --yes, this listing format is to be strong enough to set up similar meeting tracks in other groups, including ones on rather different topics!))) (LT32VOAs such, it's fairly important to get this listing as well-done as possible as it aims to be copied & maintained all over the place!))
As this was scheduled soon "May 16, 2012" but there was no plan to revive this as we now have a replacement series (as next one http://meetu.ps/9tLnC), I postponed 1yr: *changed date fr "May 16, 2012" to "May 15, 2013" *changed recurrence fr "Every 3rd Wed every 4 months" to ".. every 12 months".
*This thread's URL is http://wmeetup.com/OC... . *~As this thread's top-cmt announced >1yr ago, we then merged this break-off series into to our Main event series **But I still left this series on our calendar, but occurring at a very infrequent rate “Repeating on the third Wed of every 12 months”, should we need to undo that. And I now see its next occurrence upcoming this week. **However, as expected, the change was very necessary to sustain the attendance of both and increased the repeated-attendance of both. **So indeed I'm now canceled this break-off series (stopping the repeat then canceling); consequently move your RSVP instead to its replacement (our Main series), next upcoming http://meetup.com/OCA... . ***Now I'm moving those RSVPed YES here which have not already been moved: ****None.
On last mtg of this, I cmt http://meetup.com/OCAndroid/eve... "WE NEED SOME LEADERS FOR THIS, else this meeting will be the last for now as the track will be put on indefinite hold. ..." & also announced this at the mtg, as a last ditch effort to save. As anticipated, we got no takers. so I now doing effectively that: changing frequency "Repeat on 3rd Wed" from "every 1 mo" to "every 4 mos", 2 re-review then -so moving this next one from today to May 16.
Since 2009, we are Your oldest & largest professional community group

(LTDOG6=your place to network & make tech buds!)
(LTBL8S=Mostly small-group meetings where attendees really get to know one another, not just some presentation where you only really get to know the presenter & the organizer.)
(LC78Q2=2010~-, Members are hand-picked, especially on following basic directions & respecting group rules, including:
(LTECO0=With each other (and ideally everyone), members should (communicate foremost by appropriate posting)LRBX9W and avoid private-messages & calls when possible to avoid. For instance, (LTED3B=News & info about venues is posted on the venue's thread so all can see, benefit, & reply.) (LTED7B=For jobs (recruiters especially, take note!), one (posts the need as a thread in the forum of Jobs Offered & Wanted) and (at least for the reply, encourages reply posts there rather than privately contacting back); the forum's also private so other employers can't see.) (LTECMG=No posting direct contacts (as phone #s & emails) except for carpooling & finding-at-a-group-event.))
MJ6D5O:Membership requires approval, including:
MJD8EG:Answer all your profile Qs fully & accurately else you will not be admitted. Including:
MJD8WF: it's much faster & easier for everyone for you to do it right rather than do it over. Including apps that don't get it right the first time get 2nd priority as for those then we must stop & explain what all to fix and review again before we approve.
MJZ9AD: Notice question MFTRef is 2 sub-questions which then both need full & accurate answers.
MJZ9JF: Answer in via doing quote:
MJZ9K3: Some typical good answers for each part include:
MJZ9L6: "(2) See Intro" (where that gives this answer)
MJZBAA: "(2)I liked Android ..so got my 1st Android(&4a mere $25/mo w/unlimited 3G data+sms:Virgin Mobile Samsung Intercept smartphone -deal!) so then searched for nearby Meetup group to learn about Android this was by far the the largest one"
( LTE8WN=Last, we have a Head Organizer who, now, and for many weeks during this year, is working more than full-time, unpaid, to make this all happen, especially due to our recent rapid growth; plus increasing new additional leaders (see above), together all making this group the great place that it is.)
LTDSHF: a great intro to Meetup. New to Meetup.com? Welcome to Meetup, too! – the most-powerful major website to find & host in-person groups. If you want, simply use your Facebook to login. Meetup provides you 92,000 in-person local groups: all topics, worldwide, & mostly for free.
MJCNH9: Additional rules & guidelines:

(LC78QV=RSVP for at least 2 events (your group title will show your RSVP count).)
(LC78R6=To answer the organizer's private Qs when you RSVP (this info is private: only event hosts can see your answers).)
(LTE8FA=If your involvement with our group helps you get paid work or fill a paidposition, you must let the head of our group know within a week. (LTFJ7P=This group is a free service to the general public and has led many people to find jobs & fill positions; but, per this thread, facilitating all this (finding jobs & good people, and training & meetings & making-connections) and running this group takes hard work and we want & need credit where it's due.))
(LTUCAQ=Please comment! Your constructive feedback,posts especially, is what makes us happen!
