Monthly meetup - November

As usual, we are holding the Android monthly meetup on the fourth Tuesday of the month at King Street Brewhouse. We’ll kick off at 6:30pm but please feel free to arrive earlier to grab a drink, some food and have a chat.


We have three 10 minute presentations organised now, thanks to David, Alex and Ali for volunteering.

They'll be talking about: 

- David Jones: "Getting Users back into your App - Tools for User Retention" 

- Alex Hennecke: "Typesafe activity state with Scala"

- Ali Muzaffar: "Update to Augmented Reality Tutorial & Building a custom ImageView"


As the fourth Tuesday in December is Christmas eve and a lot of people will be on holidays, the next monthly meetup will be January 28th. If you'd like to get involved and do a short talk at the January meetup, please email me at [masked]

      There was a big blowup last week about terms in the opera house hackathon. They retracted somewhat under public scrutiny. These corps need to learn that community is not free labour

      I flagged the T&Cs with Joshua so hopefully we'll see some change. If I hear anything back, I'll post it here.

    We’ve heard a lot of rumblings about programming for Android watches - if you’ve got one and would like to talk about what you can do with it, it would be great to hear from you.

      With many smartphones, you can simply tap the phone to the back of the watch (with NFC turned on, of course), and the watch will automagically set itself up. However, some phones do not work with the NFC well (I have yet to figure out why), and so you have to make the bluetooth connection yourself and download the Smartwatch 2 accessory app from the app store.

      Thanks for the tips Paul. Seems like our library would need to act as a bridge. Any idea if Google glasses works in a similar way?...... I've found Nexus4 flakey with the current NFC campaign on Sydney busses. My old NexusS was note reliable.

    Thanks for the talks and conversation, all.

    Someone asked my about my experience overriding onMeasure for layouts: see my SO answer here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/16748124/custom-square-linearlayout-how/19497893#[masked]
