    While hardware by HTC is hot there's not much chances to try it. Even if you spend $600 you're getting a limited library. Looks like their objective was to hire some devs right on meet up. Not much usable info for now.
    The other talk was OK. Many usable hints.

      Michael got back to me - you start a commit (CMD-k), then there is a diff button in the top left corner. -- Thanks Michael!

    Great Event! I learned a lot from Android Studio TIps as I'm switching from ADT to Android Studio now; it would be great to make Slides of Android Studio Tips available online.

    Thanks a lot!

    Hello GDGers!

    I am working on some neat concepts and looking for a few industry veterans and star developers to form the core technical team. I am especially looking leaders / experts in Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Image Processing, NLP, Android, Java-Spring, and/or Groovy-Grails -- more than one areas of expertize would be great to have. If you are a developer, engineer, or are in a leadership position and looking for a change and potentially a great opportunity, I would love to connect with you. Please email me directly ([masked]) ... I will also be there at the meet up tonight and would love to chat with anyone who would be interested. Just email or call me [masked]). I am based in Sunnyvale / Mountain View.
