    Unfortunately, it wasn't quite what I expected tonight.
    The first presentation was via Skype and held a lot of promise, but call quality was quite limited, probably due to the number of techies using the free wifi.
    But for some reason I was expecting a demonstration on how perform logging and debugging in the most effective manner.

    Maybe a talk for another day.

    The group chat was interesting, if some of it was a little tricky to follow for noobs.

    It was great to be at the meetup this evening! It would like to learn more about the best practices - hence I;m looking for examples of well formatted or useful log files, well written programs that log messages sensibly, strike a balance between too much and too little.

    Hi There, I have been work on a vector graphics library for Android for - will a bit too long now., I have released a big chunk of it as open-source about a month ago. but am experiencing the feedback equivalent of sensory deprivation. The website is http://vectoroid.com. So I am just looking for any feedback on what is there at the moment - is the message clear? is it apparent what it does? etc. The website still not very aesthetically pleasing. If anyone has opinions good/bad.please do tell.

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.
