GDG BarCamp 11th May

We are planning a GDG BarCamp for the 11th May 2013. There will be talks in the morning but most of the day will be set aside for lightning talks in an un-conference format.

Topics to be covered

  • Android development,
  • Google APIs,
  • PhoneGap,
  • Building back-end services with Drupal


If you keen to give a talk, present a topic or run a code lab, please contact me [masked]

    Thanks to all who braved the cold and wet weather to come through. Hopefully we will have more of these in future, with a hack-a-thon as well!

    Thank you to the organisers (Mark, etc.) and to the presenters Tobie, Richard and Mark (again) … and all the other guys you graciously gave input and attended this event.

    It used the Android theme even though it the same code as the iPad app.
    Look and feel is different on a phone and tablet
