April News from the Austin Google Developer Group

Daniel P.
Group Organizer
Austin, TX
Thanks to HomeAway for sponsoring a terrific meetup last night. Brian Griffey gave a presentation on useful open source libraries for Android apps and after the talk most of us hung around and discussed Android development. We also gave away some Android books and two six month subscriptions to The Busy Coder's Guide to Android Development which some of our members consider to be the best resource for learning Android development.
