    Hi all, unfortunately I cant attend tonight's meetup and will endeavour to come to the next one. I wanted to however drop a quick line and say that
    www.bluedot.com.au is currently hiring a Senior Android Developer. If you have a well developed skill set in core Android Development and an interest in working with advanced location based services drop me a line at [masked]

    Thanks!

      Hey Filip. Hope we can see you at the next one.

      Instead of advertising on the wall here we prefer members giving themselves a shoutout at the meetup where we have a timeslot for jobs and jobseekers to connect. You can also contact me directly if you'd like some help getting the word out.

      Hi Drew, no issue at all. I look forward to the next one!

    Hi all,

    I have founded a new music tech startup and this is our first, now crowdfunded, product:

    http://www.auug.com­­­­

    I'll be at this meeting (Mar 27) so if you have any questions feel free to chat before or after the speakers.

    In particular I am interested in talking to people who see the potential of the product both as a musical instrument/controller (e.g. games/VR) and broader online service, and who might like to get involved in the future.

    • Josh B.

      Will do man

      March 27, 2014

    • Drew K.

      Great to meet you last night Joshua. I'm normally a little more organised so I forgot to mention last night that towards the end we usually do shoutouts for things like this where you can stand up and give us your elevator pitch. That way people know to come up to you afterwards and ask more questions.

      Of course this wall was meant for that too, so glad you took the initiative and got yourself out there. Make sure to contact me before the next meetup and we'll try and organise something :)

      March 28, 2014

  • Simon H.

    Hi everyone! Really looking forward to the event as I'm new to the space and I'm keen to get connecting. FYI I have 2 great Front End Development roles at the moment at 2 top tier agencies in Melbourne. If you'd like to chat about it further give me a call on[masked] or email me at [masked]
    See you all soon!

    It's a little unfortunate, but this seems to be the same day as the RORO meetup http://www.offermann.us/2013/12/tiny-docker-pieces-loosely-joined.html.

    March 5, 2014

    • Drew K.

      Ah that's no good. It's so hard to pick a date that doesn't clash with another meetup :(

      March 6, 2014

    • Ben

      Looks like some great talks and a good turn out. But yeah, if it wasn't RORO, I'd be there too!

      March 21, 2014

  • Drew K.

    A reminder that we've got a special location for this meetup, we're at the Odecee office "Odecee
    Level 11, 410 Collins Street, Melbourne".

    This meetup will not be at the North Melbourne Cafe.

    March 21, 2014

  • Drew K.

    Meetup is one week away. I've got plenty of things to update you on so stay tuned, and make sure you keep next Thursday night free!

    March 20, 2014

  • Adam

    Looking forward to it. Old venue will be hard to beat Drew ;)

    March 7, 2014

    • Drew K.

      We love our North Melbourne Cafe, but it's good to change it up once in a while. Looking forward to catching up Adam.

      March 9, 2014

  • Drew K.

    New location guys, my current workplace has agreed to host the meetup. We've got giveaways, and lots of yummy food sorted, with some interesting talks lined up.

    1 · March 5, 2014

  • Drew K.

    Sorry for taking so long to get this started again guys, I have big things planned for our meetup so come along, and bring your friends...lets kick off 2014 with a bang!
