We might, just might, get to wear shorts for the upcoming meeting. Notr sure if that is a pro or con for this group though. ;)
Dev Tools and You! Ian will be giving us a demo on how to use the Dev tools built into Google's Chrome browser. If you have needed Firebug on firefox then you should be interested in how Google has built it into their browser.
Ubuntu Touch I have the dev preview running on my Galaxy Nexus phone, and it does show promise. But it is a dev preview - so while the windowing and UI is baked, some of the apps are actually place holder PNGs!
I have big pink gradated water bottles (32oz) for giveaways. Answer questions in Ian's demo and get an easy way to carry half of your recommended daily water consumption!
And maybe a new food place, if you guys feel adventurous. The Wild Turkey by the bowling alley on Walnut is a North Dallas institution, burgers and beers.
---- Caution: Generic Meetup description follows ---
We are a group of some serious, and some not-so-serious, geeks that want to see the Open Source Ethos spread and help as many people as will let it. During the meetings, which are pretty much an excuse to get together and have fun, we catch up on topical and industry news, projects, code releases, recent technical problems and solutions...
There are sometimes presentations - anything open source but if it is software then running on more than 1 platform is preferred (Linux, Mac, Win, etc.). Mobile is an exception due to Apple's refusal to let FOSS code onto their IOS platform - so we talk about Android a lot more.
I you have an itch to scratch that can be solved by technology, bring it on in! You well always get an educated opinion and sometimes a useful answer too. The group is not homogeneous around one specific technology, or industry, or language or nationality. What we have in common is our desire to make our lives better, and the set of people in "our" is everyone, everywhere.
Join us afterwards at Mother's Daughter's Diner for lunch! Yes, you want to save room for the pie. Hope you have a hunger for adventure. ;)
