GTUG KL meetup #1

We're having our 1st meetup this 27th June 2009!

For our 1st meetup, we will be talking about Android. Android is a complete set of software for mobile devices: an operating system, middleware and key mobile applications developed by the Open Handset Alliance, an initiative led by Google. With more Android based phones coming out from the factoires of HTC, Samsung and other major phone makers, Android is hot stuff. We're going to introduce & talk a little bit about Android, the Android Market & how to begin developing Android applications.

Here's our agenda:

4:30pm - Opening by the organiser.
4:45pm - "Hello Android" by Nazrul Kamaruddin.
5:15pm - Lightning Talks.
6:00pm - Break. Breakout sessions.

Hello Android

Nazrul will be talking a little bit about Android: the origins, the potential, how to begin making apps. For the last part of the presentation, he will be demoing the Android SDK and a demo app.

Lightning Talks

A Lightning Talk is a short presentation at GTUG KL meetups. Unlike other presentations, lightning talks last only a few minutes and several will usually be delivered in a single period by different speakers. You can share your experiences or rants using GMail, Picasa, YouTube and any other Google technology & services. Share your shortcuts working around Google Docs. You can even talk about your own personal projects that's using App Engine. You can pre-submit your lightning talk session by sending me an email: nazrul at gtugs dot org. You can just do it spontaneously on that day!

RSVP your attendance at the Facebook event page & see you there!
