Next week we'll be trying something new for our SC: Homework! This weeks assignment is to create a basic app with a button that takes a picture. Embellish as you will and be ready to talk about it next week.

It's basically video conferencing. If you look to the right, there's a 'Start a hangout' button. If you don't have the software you need it should walk you through installing it. If you're interested in joining the study group hangouts, let us know so we can add you to the invite list.
