We will meet a couple of days before the 4th. Let's make this first meeting of the summer season something to celebrate for.
First of all, you may notice that GTUG is getting a new group name of Google Developer Group (GDG), and our group is now Google Developer Group East Bay (GDG East Bay). For those who attended Google I/O 2012 or any of the I/O Extended events, for example:
Heads Up: I/O Extended San Francisco (http://www.meetup.com/ebgtug/events/70832892/)
Heads Up: WIP Demo Lounge at Google I/O (a Google I/O Extended event) (http://www.meetup.com/ebgtug/events/70837792/)
Heads Up: DevJam's Google I/O Extended event (http://www.meetup.com/ebgtug/events/66220082/)
please come to our event to tell us what interested you the most?
What would be better to kick off the first summer season session for the East Bay GDG than with HTC? Let HTC share their expertise in the smartphones and tablets technologies with the members of East Bay GDG.
We will also be looking forward to hear from the most voted NeuroSky app project and see the status of the project!

An introduction to the HTC OpenSense SDK and an overview of the currently available APIs including: Lock Screen, Sound Enhancer, Mobile Device Management, Common Controls, and more as well as a preview of upcoming APIs such as the Media Link HD API. We will also hold a hands-on workshop and help you get started with developing an app that uses one or more of the APIs. There will be a HTC device prize/award.
The format will be a lecture followed by hands-on workshop, so please bring your fully charged laptops with Android SDK, Eclipse and HTC OpenSense SDK add-on already installed (install with SDK Manager), Android phone/tablet and a USB cable to connect the laptop and the Android device. Note, the installation can take some time, so please get it done ASAP. Thank you for your preparation.
