Football day of my dreams

Growing up in Denver, and now living in Phoenix, both of my favorite teams have the possibility of making it to the super bowl (or not, which is just as possible).

IoTDevFest Promo Video is ready (and is awesome!)

This 2 min video is a great recap of our event a few weeks ago. It was a great time, and it is fun to relive the memories.

Slides are posted: http://www.iotdevfest.com/speakers/

Cameos in video from speakers: +Chris Matthieu, +Stewart Christie, +Greg Gorman, +Luis Montes, +Dave Smith, +Peter Heinrich, +Justin Ribeiro, and +jen tong.

Wouldn't happen without our awesome sponsors: +Google Developer Groups, +Google Developers Experts, +Octoblu, and Local Motors

Finally special thanks to +Sheldon McGee (for handling all the stuff), +James Cha (for being go to guy on "game day"), +Travis Buckner (for awesome Cactus logo, and much printing coordination), and finally +Patrik Matheson (for video and venue coordination), plus the army of volunteers who made the event a success.

Great recap from superstar user group organizer about how to pull off a large scale community event

I learn a lot from +Brad Westfall about organizing events whenever I talk to him, and he has captured his knowledge into a detailed post.

 
I wrote an article about CSSDay on CSS-Tricks https://css-tricks.com/planning-a-tech-event/
The following is a guest post by Brad Westfall. I ran into Brad at a conference not long ago and we talked about potential guest post ideas. Brad recently

I was on the Android Central podcast talking about #UbiquityDevSummit

Had a nice chat with +Phil Nickinson and +Russell Holly about my recent trip to SF and what I saw relating Brillo/Weave, and Android everywhere (Auto, Living Room, Wear).

The podcast is 45min long total, and the meat of my recap starts about 10min in.
 
We're joined by Google Developer Expert Mike Wolfson — who's also been working on the Android Central App — to talk about the Ubiquity Dev Summit, Brillo, Weave, the Internet of Things, and what any of that actually means. Plus we postmortem CES and answer more of your questions live. Don't miss…
We survived CES and have lived to podcast another day! Now we have to unbury ourselves from the Internet of Things.

Bad time for the surface tablets to break down

Funny and ironic to have this tech fail on such a big stage. I expect this will be a "thing" especially since the Patriots are involved.

I'm sure the broken tablets left them feeling a little deflated.

Tons of great resources for getting kids interested in science

How to trick your kid into thinking STEM is fun.

http://lifehacker.com/how-to-get-your-kids-interested-in-stem-without-forcin-1751361598
Hopefully your kids are getting a great education in science, technology, engineering, and math at school, but chances are those classes aren’t enough to instill a lifelong interest in these fields for most kids. As parents, however, there are a lot of easy ways we foster a greater love of learning and exploration in STEM subjects in our children.

TBT - book signing at Google IO

Just came across this gem from IO this year, what a great picture (and I just noticed a cameo from +Matt Kaufman fiddling with his Android Wear watch). +Allen Firstenberg

Quick Vector Drawable Tip - Masking

Masking is one method to help make some more lively changes to your icons (like the disable slashes in the Quick Settings panel).

To do it, simply draw your mask layer on top of your other layers. The layers underneath will appear through any of its positive space. Once you have your XML, simply replace the mask's <path> to <clip-path>. Any color-related attributes will be ignored so remove them if you wish.

Reference the image example attached. That's it!

A unique atmosphere a short walk off the beaten path. When we were there (on our honeymoon) there was a local wedding going on in another room (which was fun for us, and of course says something that locals would feel it special enough a place for their wedding).

My new mechanic. They were able to fix a problem (which I thought was going to be much bigger) by taking their time, and using intuition (and knowledge of Honda's) to fix it. The dealer I used to go to (now replaced by my "new mechanic") couldn't fix the problem. It was quick, easy, and in-expensive, and I knew they weren't trying to sell me extra stuff. It is clear this is an honest, family business, and it is my pleasure to work with them.

I had an issue with my Lexus RX400h, and dealt with Adam, and his vendors. Everything was super straightforward, honest, and pleasant. I will never buy a car anywhere other than Goldies. Why would you deal with sleazy car salesmen, when these guys are around (and are honest and straightforward).
