Quick meetup with +Patrick Rothfuss​ at PAX Prime 2015. There are few books I've reread just to enjoy the art of writing, and I'm happy to say all of his works are among them.

Meet, learn from, and break bread (or in our case, delicious bbq) with some of the folks who make your dream phone happen!
 
So, I'm speaking at +Big Android BBQ in October. If you register, you can get a chance to tell me how much you love Enums.. in person!

Oh, also +Reto Meier and +Chet Haase  will be there... but they don't like Enums either.... so... might get awkward..

So much more than a Developer Conference, The Big Android BBQ is a grassroots, community-driven celebration of Android that is equal parts education, entertainment, and altruism.

If you've ever wanted to get into creating on Android, here's a two-part deal just for you.
 
IDEAA Udacity scholarships!
Very exciting news.  If you have ever wanted to dip your toe into the world of Android development now is the time!!

Start with the beginner course, learn more at the #babbq2015  then complete the nanodegree on +Udacity!  Who knows in less than a year you could be starting a new career.  Maybe you could lead one of the sessions at the 2016 Big Android BBQ

There are still tickets available at http://bigandroidbbq.com.  It's not just for expert developers it's for anyone with passion, drive, a desire to have fun with others.  There is no event that embodies the Android motto of "Be together, not the same" like Big Android BBQ.
