This was my first meetup ever and I guess I made the right choice. Excellent presentations especially the concurrency facts. I knew the bugs in Async Task but was not aware with alternatives of using loaders. Nice to know the architecture that Facebook uses to manage reusable components across the board. Also was using old SDK for Facebook with my own modifications but looks like its worth to use new one. Overall very useful and worth attending. Thank you guyz.

I heard a strange twist to this at http://www.designcon.com/santac...
The ifixit guys
say they went viral only after exposing everything.
Well, almost everything...
They buy the lastest brand new anything anywhere in the world it comes out first and rip it open to expose the guts. Braodcom can't do this, Nvidia can't do this, the ifixit guys can do this.
Pretty cool. I mean Steve made history by ripping off Xerox and now you have these kids making a living just ripping the thing open. They did a Go Pro today but I have a Contour so short of winning the giveway I was mainly bored.

I sincerely hope that our esteemed meetup organizers can do their best to avoid using those places required meetup members to sign NDA for attending meetups. If signing NDA is required, it'd be great to announce it in advance and disclose what kind of confidential content is going to be released in the meetup so that we can determine whether it's worth signing NDA to attend it or not.

I for one think it is fine to sign a NDA to use a fine facility. I am not there to steal anything anyway. If I am not mistaken it only means if I see something on a whiteboard I can think about it, I just can't talk about it. I asked about this sort of thing at the ATT hackathon last weekend and the answer was "nobody cares". Your milage may vary but it is an NDA, not a "will not compete clause."

When asked about the Facebook-required NDA at the Jan 16 2013 Facebook Meetup, Bear (a Facebook employee) said (before the entire audience) that the NDA did not apply to anything said in the meeting room and was intended to cover the case where someone wandered off on their own and saw something. It would be better for all if the written NDA conformed to the verbal clarifications.
