      Jim, the discussion will be focused on NFC, however we will also touch on QR codes as there are some very interesting stats coming out of recent campaigns!

    Awesome stuff! I loved every minute of it. It was so inspiring, and gave me new ideas/insights to thinking about. Everything I wanted to hear, was said + more. :D Two great speakers, and a great networking opportunity! For anyone who wants to add me on Google+ (I was the 2nd year IT student), here's my profile: https://plus.google.com/107292960535792201556

    Thank you once again John for organising it. I look forward to the next one. Both with GDG and Android Australia.

    PS: Will the presentation slides be uploaded on this page?

    @Ankur Kotwal,
    Vould you post a link again of samples of what you demonstrated ?
    cheers

    thx to both presenters for their input. NFC still has fair way to go by the demonstration provided though interesting . QRcode that allows for multiple assignments is also interesting.
