In this tech talk, Roland Tritsch--Director of Business & Application Services at Fujitsu UK and Ireland--will discuss how to build Scala apps for Android and will then introduce the Scaloid framework as a way to do Scala development "the Scala way" on Android. As part of the presentation, we will build a simple BLE scanner (looking for beacons).
About the presenter: Roland has more than 25 years of experience building, running and fixing software engineering organisations and large distributed systems. His background includes positions at IONA Technologies, Gilt and HP. He likes computers, software and cycling, and these days is most interested in finding ways to make the "Internet of Things" work.
We'll have two tech talks, pizza and beer, and mingling! Doors open at 7:15 PM. The meetup starts at 7:30 PM. People who arrive before 7:15 will be politely asked to come back.
