For our August meetup, we are pleased to have Sara Haider, Android Engineer at Twitter, speak about the inspiration behind Vine and the development of Vine for Android. After Vine's success on iOS, Sara's team has tackled video editing on Android's highly fragmented platform. Sara will discuss various decisions and trade-offs that were made in building Vine's looping playback, stop-motion recorder, and overall app performance on Android. She will also provide insight into the build stack, tools, and processes used in the project.
*We're pleased to have this meet up to be held at Twitter HQ. Please note space is limited and the event is CLOSED TO PRESS. You can find additional logistical details below.
