    It was fun and inspiring to listen to the HOPES teenager entrepreneurs present their projects. Peter Bell did an excellent job speaking about Managing Software Projects. Offerred some very solid advice.

    Any spare Android devices available? As many of you know , I am primarily an iOS (iPhone/iPad) software architect and developer. However, I occasionally work on Android projects, and I have some work that I need to test on several devices.

    In addition, I have started working with some leaders in Augmented Reality and wearable device (along the lines of Google Glass, but there are many varieties), which are typically Android based.

    Does anyone have any android devices that they are currently not using, that I can borrow for testing. A loan would be great (in the interest of entrepreneurial congeniality!). A purchase is possible, too, for a working device at a fair price.

    I'll be at the meetup tonight, so let me know if you are bringing one for me, and we'll find a way to meet up.
