I'm not a developer but an Android user and fan. I especially like the price I pay Virgin Mobile for my Motorola Triumph: $25/mo w/unlimited text & data & 300 min voice. I also use an Acer A100 (7" Android tablet).
(1) Destiny Architect -- http://www.meetup.com/OCAndroid/members/1895099/ -- told me about the group. (2) I use an Android smartphone and tablet and am very much interested in the changes being brought about in our culture through these devices. Besides that lofty objective, I find discovering and using Android apps to be a lot of fun. New Android users sometimes need help in getting up to speed, and developers often find it useful to see how users react to and with their apps. Those are the areas where I feel users can contribute to this group.
I don't want to build apps, but do want to share news with other users about the cool Android apps we've found. Later we might be putting in requests to developers about what we users would like to have built!
None unless you count HTML and CSS. I've built and managed a number of Web 1.0 sites and recently released two very simple commercial WordPress sites, plus a BuddyPress site for the family reunion I hosted in 2011. I do a little CSS for organizational MailChimp emails.
I'm not a programmer but have done some web design and have been a professional writer and graphic designer (InDesign, Photoshop) for print media for years. I'm currently working with MS Expression Web and WordPress and am learning CSS. I do some of my own IT admin (including a little Subversion) and for writing and multimedia use Windows 7 plus, of course, Android. I have a degree in journalism and have done extensive still photography, both in my early career in educational and medical public relations and later as a freelance writer and graphic designer. I've recently learned to do video editing (using Pinnacle on the PC) and have made several videos. I started my computer life in the '80s on a Mac 512 but defected to the dark side during the Mac clone wars. I'm the author of a book, How to Start A Home-Based Writing Business (The Globe Pequot Press), now in its 5th edition.
Yes, in fact it's picked as the #1 featured example of meeting this standard per http://1.JotHere.com/767#M4RCP6 .
Expanding to include a track for users like me -- thanks. I will be running those meetings.
~3 days ago, YouTube suggested me http://youtube.com/watch?v=27AGe1b0mn... "Go Open Source or Go Home" "Uploaded on Oct 10, 2009"; old but notable as by an attractive 20s woman whose at least 3of5 claims verify as good software recommendations, including: "do pretty much everything Photoshop does: Gimp" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparis... concurs):let me know if so&how u find Gimp! &For video,see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparis... .
Within Windows, for handling DVDs & BluRays &other optical disks with copy-protected content , esp when wanting ripping a video clips from them (but can also be used any video extraction,incl changing to much better video formats as H.264), as I shared with u ~2yrs ago, AnyDVD http://slysoft.com/en/anydvd.html appears to me the essential tool4 the job -in that when 1 inserts the optical disk, it appears to the OS as it's w/o any copy protection, so ALL programs(not just copy) can read&extract.
Hi Lucy, sorry I missed the last meetup. But I would love to meet u and trade info regarding the andeoid phone, did you learn a lot?
Destiny says you like face painting. Check this out:
As I mentioned yesterday, since I don't have a Kindle&account, pls download this book http://meetup.com/common-ground-spiri... onto your Kindle and lend it to me to check out; if the book's not something I want, I will return it shortly else pay u the cost, just $5. Also, since u're into book publishing, u'd prob like seeing there how she's selling her book,+collecting money teaching using it&Meetup so also promoing her book.
Lucy, per ur curiosity, yes, tonight Fri7:0pm-9:30pm "Peace in Motion Cafe Presents: Favela Rising" http://meetup.com/ocmovies/events/977... looks pretty good, & indeed I've been to ~2 of these Peace in Motion films already (all listed in this group) and the're quite good, so I'd recommend you join that group (I'm also a long-time member) & RSVP YES!
Please post reply to my comment "could we cancel [for tomorrow's OCAndroid]" in this thread http://www.meetup.com/OCAndroid/event... (sorry, Meetup doesn't well support bookmark links to event thread comments)- thanks!
