It isn't too late to join others and start learning +Android
development on Thursday evenings for the next seven weeks. Join our facilitators +Fred Medlin
in Durham at +Two Toasters
and +Evan Halley
in Cary at +School Dude
for our seven-week Android #studyjam
sessions covering the Udacity "Developing Android Applications" course.
This week will look at Lesson 1 from the course. Week seven will be presentations of final projects. Sign up is a two-step process.
First, use this link whether you have an existing Udacity login or not: https://www.udacity.com/account/affiliate/StudyJam
Eventually you will see a "Start Free Trial" button, but just ignore that and click on "Access Course Materials" to get to the course. All Google courses are free on Udacity.
Second, to register for the Study Jam sessions themselves. Pick your preferred location and use the registration links below. You can sign up for just the first one, or all of the days separately if you'd like the calendar entries. Food will be provided at the Durham location, but currently not at the Cary location (although that may change).

You don’t HAVE to register through the Study Jam program or participate in it to take the course, but I will say that Google has graciously offered to provide some funding, so people who come consistently to the sessions will receive some good swag, and there will be some really great opportunities for people that present final projects in the seventh week to win some prizes.
If you are unable to participate in the Study Jam sessions it is highly recommend to try out the course if you are trying to learn Android development. The course is a complete look at the features and techniques for making professional Android apps.
If you have any questions just email firstname.lastname@example.org or contact +Luke Dary via G+ or Hangout. #devstudyjam #gdg
