This month Paul Brewer will give a quick demo on Google's Big Query datastore and give a comparison between it and MySQL with a 5GB dataset.  We will also be covering some details of some of the changes discussed at the GDG NA Organizers Summit last month and what it means for our chapter.

To kick off our first meeting of the year, we will cover some of the policies of the Play Store that those interested in developing for Android should be aware of, including some of the security measures taken behind the scenes to keep Android devices safe.  We will also go into downloading and setting up Android Studio for those that already are Android developers but have yet made the switch or for those interested in learning.

Let's get together and reminisce about 2014, and do some planning for next year.  Anything you would like to see different for next year, any topics you would like to see covered either more in depth or that wasn't covered this year.  This meetup will also be over a Hangouts session for those that can't make it in person but would still like to voice their opinion and take part.  For those that are able to make it in person this meeting will be rather informal so feel free to bring food and drinks or what ever to share.
This Hangout On Air is hosted by GDG Gigcity. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

This saturday is the Southeast Tennessee Hour of Code, there will be two different groups: a morning group for 3rd and 4th grade students and a afternoon group for 5th to 8th grade students.  The morning group will be from 10AM to 12PM at Brainard Youth and Family Development Center.  The afternoon group will be from 1PM to 3PM at the Chattanooga Public Library.  These events are for kids interested in trying out coding for the first time, as such no prior experience is needed.  During each session kids will learn about:

* Learn about computer science careers from local professionals
* Meet other students interested in coding
* Complete the Hour of Code tutorials

If you are interested in helping out, you can register, on their Eventbrite page that they link to.  Please not registration ends December 10th.

The next evolution to email is just around the corner.  Google has just announced the release of "Inbox", currently an Invite only but once you get an invite you can then Invite others.  If waiting is not for you then you can send an email to inbox@google.com and request getting bumped up on their invite list.

The 8th and 9th of January is CityCampCHA, an unconference with the goal of building a safer city.

CityCampCHA is an unconference focused on innovation for municipal governments and community organizations. As an unconference, content for CityCampCHA is not programmed for a passive audience. Content is created and organized by participants and coordinated by facilitators. Participants are expected to play active roles in sessions. This provides an excellent format for creative, open exchange geared toward action.

CityCampCHA recognizes that local governments and community organizations have the most direct influence and impact on our daily lives. This event seeks to create local communities of practice who are dedicated to design, process, and technology applications that make cities and other local communities more open and “user friendly.” The theme for CityCampCHA is Building A Safer City.
