Consuming REST and Chuck Norris Hacking

Are we having fun hacking on Android???

Since the last meeting, Eric Fox has implemented the consumption of the REST Chuck Norris API.  He will be sharing how he implemented it using Google's Volley library.  Feel free to take a peek at his code, it is available on the develop branch of our Chuck Norris Android Application.

Update: We also have implemented the Random Joke portion of the application.  Bring it down and run it locally to see the random joke in action.

The remainder of the time will be devoted to hacking Android and answering any questions that you may have.  Looking forward to yet another awesome meeting.

Pizza Provided: I am more than happy to provide pizza again, donations are accepted.  If you plan on attending, please RSVP so I can have a better idea of how much pizza to get.

    In order to prepare for the hacking portion of tomorrow's meeting, what do you have the most questions about?

    Hacking is completely open where you are free to work on whatever. However, if many of you are having problems working in Git, then I would like to take a subset of the group and address those problems / questions.

    What are you looking forward to hacking on tomorrow?

      I second the vote on GIT. Perhaps walking through the process of doing a PULL request, and what that looks like. It would also help to review the "Requested Features" list.
