Finally had time to post a summary of the material design meetup from a few weeks back #materialdesign   #design  
 
We've wrote up a summary for all those that couldn't make it to the last Android Meetup in London. Some Novoda clients kindly let us show off a few concepts for Material for consideration of how we will transition to Material Design. #materialdesign #design #androiddev

Looking forward to seeing everyone's #materialdesign !
 
Sign up on Skillsmatter (Limited to 130 places)

What if an interface wasn’t just 2d? Virtual light sources, realtime shadows, an emphasis on clean typographic layouts with rich animated touch feedback! But my app is lovingly HOLO! What now? How can we transition, should we and when? Join a discussion amongst some great App design minds. We'll figure it out in an open discussion.    

AGENDA  
6.15pm: INTRO  
6.20pm: Some #materialdesign printed examples  
6.30pm: Round table discussion points:  
* Conveying 'Material' in your designs  
* Branding: How can I have a unique identity?  
* Form Factors: How do I stay responsive  
* Quick Wins for your App 

• 7:15pm: Pizza & Further Discussion  
8:00pm: Continue discussion at the Pub


** SUBMIT YOUR #MATERIALDESIGN **   
In anticipation of the discussion why not contribute your material designs? We will be printing out and sharing some of material design inspiration and examples from social networks which are marked with  #materialdesign. Take one of your existing apps or reimagine something entirely! Post to any public channel with #materialdesign we'd of course appreciate your drawing our attention to these  in the comments. 

** WHERE TO SUBMIT? #materialdesign ** 
We will be monitoring these social networks: 
* Twitter 
* G+  
* Dribbble 
* Pintrest  
Add #londroid to make sure we see it! Mostly we are observing #materialdesign as a hashtag. On dribble and pintrest we add 'android' to ensure relevant results.
Lets Discuss: Holo to #MATERIALDESIGN

Stefan will be taking our questions for #ioextended14
 
Hello #io14extended London,

I'm Stefan and I'll be your #io14 #ambassador this year, meaning I'll be your eyes on the ground.

If you are curious on how it is to be here, have questions about the announcements or anything else that I can help you with I'll try my best to find out and respond.

With over 6000 people and a multiple of this present in devices the network has a hard time to stay stable. Nevertheless I will try to react as quickly as possible, same as the other ambassadors.

So if you post your questions for me and the other volunteers be sure to include #io14 #ambassador and mention me by name.

I wish you a great time with the guys from +Londroid and +GDG London. See you on screen!

Could you please ask some designers about the back arrow (used to be a carat beside the logo) appearing in the action bar again after our years of "that's iOS' battles. Why is the SYS bar back now a triangle. Does it do different things from the back arrow.
