Everything About Android Location Based Programming that You Were Afraid to Ask

This month we have a presentation by Bibhas Bhattacharya, Founder of Vikingo Games, a Miami based mobile gaming startup. He has over 15 years of IT experience specializing in Enterprise Java, Mobile and Web Service.

This talk will explore some of the practical problems most programmers will face when developing a location-based application. Topics will include: - Best strategies for obtaining user's location. - Introduction to spatial search and the theory behind it. - How to do spatial search using a SQL database? - How to do spatial search using MongoDB? - How to test applications using mock location providers? - A few advanced topics such as proximity sensor and compass reading. As usual there will be some networking and food before the event to give everyone time to arrive for the presentation. Hope to see you there!

      Hey Lisa. For sure. What do you have in mind? We could do an informal gathering or prepare a more formal event, if it's more formal we need a speaker. We're open to all ideas.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
