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.
