Professional software engineer. Joined the group, became an Android developer, and got a job developing apps thanks to this group! Also doing firmware hacking.
Searched for "android" on meetup.com, as I had just purchased an Android tablet. Joined because you're also a *developers* group.
Geolocation, augmented reality, image processing.
Java, C++, C, assembly.
Tons of software development experience for real computers, increasing amounts for mobile.
Small and having a hard time growing, but the people are very helpful and friendly. I learn something new every meeting.
Bill, today's "7:00 PM to 8:30 PM" event in Newport Bach http://meetup.com/shygroup/events/132... I think u cd benefit from, especially the "Do you feel bored, restless, unmotivated? ... We will spend 15 min writing our aspirations and steps we can take to reach them."; hope you go.
