Developing Android Services

Speaker: Chuck Beasley, Senior Consultant with Magenic

Synopsis: One challenge to a responsive user experience is a long running operation, also known as a blocking task. Typically, solutions to this problem are to utilize threads or asynchronous tasks. However, both methods suffer from the same fundamental issue. If they run for more than a few seconds, the process may be killed by the OS. Utilizing Android services provides the benefits of threading and asynchronous tasks with the added benefit of being given a very high execution preference, which protect the process from being killed by the OS.

    I thought it went very well, just a low turn out was the only thing.

    I somehow had 959 East Paces in my calendar so needless to say I could not find the meetup. I guess I need a smarter phone or a "opps I made a mistake App"
    I will be ready for the next one
