Open Camps (http://opencamps.org) will be kicking off on Friday, 7/8! Purchase your ticket here (http://appscamp.io).

The United Nations (http://www.un.org/en/index.html) is our event host:

7:30 pm – Presentations: "The Next Era of Open Source (http://opencamps.org)"

Presenters:

Kevin Galligan (https://www.linkedin.com/in/kpgalligan), President, Touchlab (http://www.touchlab.co/#intro)

Kevin Galligan will be presenting touchlab's take of what the future of cross-platform mobile development will look like. He'll be previewing the toolset they've built on top of Google's J2ObjC (http://j2objc.org) which is already in use internally at touchlab and will be publicly launched later this year.

Kevin is the President of Touchlab - America's go-to shop for Android development & design. He started coding at age 7, and has been professionally coding for over 15 years. Kevin's Android experience started before the G1 was released. Touchlab runs the big Android developer meetup (http://www.meetup.com/android-developers-nyc/) in NYC, Droidcon NYC (http://droidcon.nyc) (an Android developer conference), and various tech community activities. In his off time, Kevin plays in a hard rock band that virtually none of you would be interested in.

Finally, Android on the iPhone (https://blog.tendigi.com/finally-android-on-the-iphone-99b0c8b3adc#.3qd8d98i5)

You heard me. The holy war is over, brethren. At Tendigi (https://blog.tendigi.com/finally-android-on-the-iphone-99b0c8b3adc#.us7mq8q1a), we’ve designed and built a case that allows iPhone devotees to sample the best Mountain View has to offer. Join me as I outline the steps taken to achieve this feat, as well as the numerous pitfalls encountered along the way.

He is currently CTO and Partner at Tendigi, leading the agency's engineering team and directing the execution of many of the industry's most innovative mobile products. Nick is also a pianist, and has been fortunate to study with Mulgrew Miller, Donald Vega, Don Friedman, and other jazz luminaries.
