The class is one 3 hour session (with 2 minutes breaks).
It is structured as three presentations, each 58 minutes long.
Peter van der Linden, Android Technology Evangelist at Motorola Mobility
Peter is the author of several best-selling programming books, including "Just Java" and "Expert C Programming." He has lived and worked in Silicon Valley for the past 24 years for a startup, a Fortune 100 company, and everything in between. Peter is Motorola's Android Technology Evangelist. Outside the office, Peter is an accomplished "hammockeer" holding state records for style, duration, altitude and an award-winning repose. Hammockeering is like orienteering, but with fewer waypoints.

Anna is a Developer Advocate with Motorola Mobility. She helps third-party developers create great applications for Android devices. Anna began her career as a software engineer at Carnegie Mellon University. She has been involved in the mobile space for the past 10 years, beginning at Palm, where she participated in creating programs and content to help developers create applications for Palm OS. Her work at Motorola continues that role with support for developer programs and services on Android. Anna holds a B.S. degree in Computer Science from the University of Pittsburgh.

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.
