Speaker Bios:
Alejandro joined Google in 2010, started on the photos mobile team, and worked on the Google+ app for Android. Among other things, he owned the photo viewer Activity (the screen that lets you see and interact with photos) and the Kennedy redesign for the entire app. Lately he has been doing some experimentation and prototyping for novel ways to interact with and create photo content socially for Google+ on Android.
Keith has been working in software for over 30-years and has been at Google for the past 5-years. He has worked on everything from video games, e-commerce, railroad control systems, photo sharing and Project Glass. He also teaches a Lego robotics course to 4th and 5th graders.

    Hi. I was one of the speakers at the event. Thanks for showing up, I had a blast!

    I'd love to hear more about what you thought, what went wrong, and what went well - I can already see some comments on the right-hand side bar, cool!

    As promised during my talk, I put the sample code for the simple Remind app online: http://code.google.com/p/remind-android/source/browse/

    Please remember that this is not actually a functioning app - at least, not yet (feel free to contribute code).

    The meetup was a smash hit! But, my only complaints were:
    1. The meeting was way too short (I arrived at 7:30 pm and left at 09:00pm), and
    2. The demo of Android code was unavailable due to a technical snafu.

    It was definitely fun - some of the most aggressive networking I've ever experienced! The first presentation was interesting, but not nearly deep enough. The second presentation TOPIC was interesting, but the presenter seemed a little lacking in his knowledge of his topic and he was extraordinarily unprepared. A technical projector glitch throws your whole presentation Mr. genius Google guy?? Come on!

    Great event. Thoughtfully planned and excellently executed. Wish I knew about Android LA earlier!

    The presentation was not very well organized and subject was very technical for majority of people attending.

    I would like to see coding and meetups for engineers and coders and all about the code. How you code stuff out and also the wrong way to code and why etc. and so on. Coding is fun and challenging. How tos in code would be nice as well as what not tos and why.

    Technical side should be more detailed.

    Another great event by Jad! The place was packed, the speakers were awesome and I met many great contacts. Google made several announcements for people to leave because people were mingling and enjoying themselves. I'm looking forward to this meetups next event!

    So if I RSVP'd on meetup but not at the given link in the description (which now says sold out), can I still come or did I screw myself by not noticing the link?

    This is cool as I can walk there as it's only a couple blocks from me. Coding android at the beach how nice.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
