And the group had been around 1 year but hadn't held any held ANY meetings, and the founder just quit. So my bud Stuart temp saved the grp from deletion &held 1 org meeting where I showed, and he, being an iOS/iPhone developer but knowing me to be a Android-fan esp a proven leader incl on Meetup, he offered the group to me & I accepted, and from there on effectively-founded the group to the success it is today!

What DestinyArchitect is saying about this Meetup Group

Tops & getting better. Professionally & scalably run. Not just a single meeting type, but features 8+ specialty meetup tracks each meeting at least monthly, together covering a full spectrum of specialties (presentations, real training at the different levels, users vs developers, conferences, general meetings, & more), with a growing group of members also taking leadership roles to make this all possible (become one of them!). It's by far the most comprehensive Android community group within a 35 mile radius (compare yourself with all competitive Meetup groups ) and possibly within all Southern California. It already incorporates all other true-Android community groups in the county (http://SoCalAndroid.Org) and adds http://OCJUG.Org (OC Java) and other related events & groups & classes to its calendar. Basically the place to be to be among the Android community in the OC, plus a model for other community tech groups.

    Hi DestinyArchitec­t! yes, we welcome allies of any sexual orientation. There are gay and straight members, for instance, who have learned a lot about bisexuality from their participation in the group and come to our events because they enjoy the activities and enjoy our company :) so no worries! and welcome!

    I don't know what what sort of "consent" you think I need, or what "warning" I need to give in order to start my own meetup group. Furthermore, I haven't the slightest idea why I would need to "explain [myself]" to you.

    Like I said over a week ago, if you have something more you would like to discuss then you can email me.
