I would guess it was the fancy codename. Had to look it up:
tachyon - noun PHYSICS
a hypothetical particle that travels faster than light.

Join us for our regular last Tuesday of the month meeting in which we will talk about Open Source Project. Specifically how to manage one, get involved by contributing,...

We will have 3 talks:

-ARToolKit - An open source platform by Ben Vaughan
factors to take into account when considering an open source project, winners and losers, building a community.

-Contributing to Open Source by Nic Roland (+Nic Roland)
Open Source Software is everywhere these days. There’s more opportunities than ever to give something back. In fact I believe that there’s more reasons than ever to give something back, some personal and others professional.
In spite of this, a lot of projects struggle to attract enough contributors. Why is this?
If you haven’t done it before, becoming a contributor to a project can seem daunting. I want to show you that there are many ways you can help an OSS community and that you can build on these contributions to become an integral part of that community.
This talk will outline some useful hints to get you motivated and ready to start giving back!
Ask not what your community can do for you, ask what you can do for your community!

-Quantum - An annotation processor for entangling your Views with external data by Brendan Fahy (+Brendan Fahy )
 With Quantum, the idea is that we can register a Tangle with an ID, and then annotate a View with that ID. At compile time, the processor generates a class which ties the View's appearance or behaviour to that Tangle. A Tangle can be anything. This allows us to configure and change elements of our layouts, outside the Activities and Fragments they live in. We can hide/show Views based on anything - for example a local database query, or a network call, or even sensor data. 
The project is still in its early stages, but maybe it can still be useful to you. And maybe you can be useful to it!

It's a shame that Allo is phone only and Hangouts will still exist. Reminds of the days using Google+ Messenger and having to switch back to Google Talk halfway through a conversation. They need to stop making separate chat apps and build on what they have. Allo features are amazing but should have been new features to Hangouts, not a separate app.

The oldest GDG in Ireland.
Introduction
Google Developer Group (GDG) Dublin meets on the last Tuesday of the month in Google HQ in Dublin. The typical meeting format is a 18:30 kick-off with some food, followed by talks and Q&A until around 20:30.

The group has a broad scope, covering issues from cloud to mobile and everything in between; while the group does have some bias towards the many innovative technologies developed by Google, the group is generally very open - this manifests in terms of interest in alternative and complementary technologies to those offered by Google, technologies which are not Google specific (eg HTML5) and engaging with other companies.

The group organizes a few different types of events. There is a regular monthly meeting held the last Tues of each month in Google's premises on Barrow St: this meet usually comprises of talks and/or panel sessions. The group also organizes hackathons and we are planning on arranging competitions and perhaps some bootcamp events.

The group's activities are generally free and all are welcome.

Disclaimer: GDG Dublin is an independent group; our activities and the opinions expressed on this +Page should in no way be linked to Google, the corporation.
