  • (LT9RKB=Well I've got news which is a little-bad but mostly-good, and of course as always I would like to ask your thoughts.)

    • (LT9RO=I'm hoping you suspected this when you noticed, as I hope you have, that is not yet listed on our site (just this thread of its creation) and so, as you would guessed, has not been advertised.)

(LT6POS THIS POST=(LT9XRY=An essentials update on the status of (this=OCAndroid I+B Dev Meetup 1), especially to leaders (of event or venue))

  • (LT9XTR=To give a complete explanation, I see it will take me a few hours to finish the prior post plus the other venue-status post it links to.)
  • (LT9XUK=In the meantime, it's important to get out the essentials to the leaders. Indeed, I'm glad to see Donna was asking. So just now I did the following:
  • (LT9Y1M=at time noted here, check for SMS messages and reply to Donna:
    Donna ... ...-3972
    10/18/11 10:14 AM
    Donna ...: Hi, [me], I haven't seen the beg+interm meeting on the even calendar. Do we start next week? 4:05 PM
    Me: Just got ur SMS. And yes, thanks for checking as I hoped u would, and asking. As soon as possible: depends on venue (hard to reach) & when listing ready (lots of work), as detailed & will be detailed in­ which I've been writing 4u event leaders. 10:14 AM
  • (LT9Y3F=Tell the essentials to the leaders (of the event (Donna­ & Sanjeev­) and of the venue (Michelle­ & Dave­)) naturally via Meetup Greets:
    DestinyArchitect The Android Developers/Users Group of US.CA.Orange Co.

    (LT9V7M=this Greet:
    Dear Leader (event or venue) of (the OCAndroid Intermediate+Beginner Developers' Meetup 1, detailed in (its Additional Aspects­,
    While I'm working as hard as possible 2hv this event as soon as possible, it isnt yet advertized&cant be today, 4reasons I'm posting4u in that thread &in(the venue thread­ in short, from growing pains as OCAndroid grows2have many tracks+many leaders+this new venue.
    Thank u 4your support.
    Oct 18, 2011 11:36 AM
    (LT9Y9D=Interestingly & pleasingly, I also made this greet to conform to (LT9Z69=this new guid'ed-but-portable writing format I've been developing), indeed this is the 1st greet to conform to it.))
  • (LTA0XM=I realize all leaders here except Sanjeev are new to Meetup, so wouldn't know to look for Greets as in their email on on their Meetup profile. And even Sanjeev is new to me so I wouldn't be sure he'd know.
    (LTA103=So I compose & send out the following SMS to all 4 (with the "group-profile" substituted for each one)
    Me: (LTA04C=RE the mtg@7pm, I just posted u a Greet on (your group-profile=­ ) --Did u see it? 12:35 PM
    Me: --as this is where Meetup users r2 notify individuals of non-private news,esp re Meetup stuff,& Greets r instantly emailed2u -Or did u know this about Meetup?) 12:36 PM
    (LTA1RJ=Note this also interestingly & pleasingly the first SMS message in (LT9Z69=this new guid'ed-but-portable writing format I've been developing), again the first of its kind, and in this case the message being split (due to short SMS length) but the "()" holding it together))

The beginner's group is to set the foundation of android development for beginner developers. We are going to provide the beginner developers with the best resources online.
before each meeting the the main focus/topic we are going to discuss will be posted. It would be preferable if members can prepare themselves before they come.

The ultimate goal of this beginner's group is after 6 months, we are familiar with the fundamentals of android development, SDK APIs and the development-release-publish process.

First meeting:

1. Set the development environment up:
IDE(eclipse) + Android SDK + Eclipse ADT plugin
download and configuration
2. Brief member introduction
3. Open talk among members

(LUMVKX­=Updating event listing

  • (add text from Donna's post

    • (LULO2X=The goal is to "set the foundation of Android development for beginner developers. We are going to provide the beginner developers with the best resources online." "The ultimate goal is" for the attendee, after attending 6 sessions, to be comfortable with "the fundamentals of Android development, SDK APIs, and the development-release-publish process.", with quotes from Donna's post.)
      (LULO3J=Each attendee should ideally arrive having already done the preparation steps posted for the particular event listing --paraphrasinging Donna's post.)
    • (LUINUM=Beginner task: "set the development environment up: IDE(Eclipse) + Android SDK + Eclipse ADT plugin" posts Donna.)
  • [Donna, don't edit your post above any more as I've copied the text from it. Instead if you want a new version, create a new post.]
  • (add

    • (LTNLD2 2=(LTODE2= OCAndroid incoming-leader Rohit of Laguna Hills; joined 2010.10.26; 9+RSVP,9+attend; B+I Dev Ldr.)
  • (publish (quote=(LT2MOD last mod=2011.10.13(Sun)pst0501) (LT2VER version=0.5)))
  • (post on Rohit's profile a version of what I posted on Ken C's)
  • (LUMW7Y=The agenda presently listed is still a standard linear course type which seemingly will perform badly for reasons I detailed to Donna. So I write: (LUMDBI=an optimized agenda for in-person group teaching when (topic takes many cumulative sessions) and (students are at different skill levels & attend unpredictably) ). How do other event leaders feel about this?)
  • (LUMWY6=We need a standard text to cover OCAndroid development beginner to intermediate which meets the criteria of the LUMDBI (even if we don't do LUMDBI as it has good text criteria). Event leaders, what do you suggest? You're the experts.)
  • (LUMWPY=to the event leaders, please post the following (last item)

    • Donna­
    • Rohit­
    • Sanjeev­
    • (LUMX32=Dear 1 of 3 leaders of­ Beg-to-Int Developer Meetups,
      Our 1st listing is nearing completion. And we need to email it out ASAP because the it's this Wed 7pm. But before we do that, on its discussion thread which I give here, please now post your feedback to the listing and in particular to my last update­ especially the LUMDBI method I'm recommending. Thanks.)
