+GDG Triangle wrapped up our first Android Study Jam series with a combined celebration. The students that made it all the way through the +Udacity course should be commended, and those that are continuing to wrap up encouraged for the efforts put forth. Big congratulations to +Betty Diegel who was awarded the first place demo and took home a Nexus 9 and Mega Android for her app GiftWise. Thank you to our two facilitators +Fred Medlin and +Evan Halley who did an amazing job given such short notice. 

Look for more of these types of long-term programs doing a deeper dive into other Google developer technologies. If you or someone you know would like to organize or facilitate a Study Jam, please contact +Luke Dary for more information.

The Google Collections library might be the most beautifully crafted set of APIs I've ever worked with. Like, seriously.

Today we’re introducing a new program called Designed for Families, which allows developers to designate their apps and games as family-friendly. Participating apps will be eligible for upcoming family-focused experiences on Google Play that will help parents discover great, age-appropriate content and make more informed choices. Read more on the blog.

April 2015 Material Design Spec Update

Here on the #materialdesign team at Google, we’re always listening to community feedback and looking for ways to broaden and expand the specification to better fit the needs of designers everywhere. Today we’re publishing an update to google.com/design/spec that draws on extensive conversations we’ve had with designers and developers over the past few months. The update includes 7 new sections, as well as refinements to content in existing sections.

Some highlights:

Data tables: guidance on presenting data sets, particularly in desktop products
Units and measurements: a description of the different units used in material design, including guidance on using density-independent pixels (DPs)
App structure: suggestions for top-level navigation in your app
Component sticker sheet for After Effects to help streamline your motion design workflow
Floating action buttons now have their own section, with added guidance on behavior and transitions
• Updated guidance on Typography, Cards, Dialogs, Tabs and Scrolling.

For all the gory details, check out the What’s New section in the spec: goo.gl/3aB3xM

Great meeting and discussion focused on fiber and gigabit internet last night at +The Frontier. Thanks to the City of Wilson for sending David Baumgartner to talk a bit about their setup and some of the success that they have had. Unfortunately we didn't have any representation from +Google Fiber but we'll keep reaching out to see if we can get someone from there to come to another meeting.

Quick recap of the discussion:
* David answered some general questions about Greenlight
* David described what the installation to the home looks like
* Discussion about point of presence and +Level 3 Communications 
* Brainstorming session about what to do with gigabit

Ideas brought up in the brainstorming session spanned a diversity of areas. Providing more real-time media was a key emphasis in everyone's mind. Things like improving traffic monitoring, surveillance, and video conferencing were obvious topics. Remote studio musicians, video production, e-learning, and medical applications were also discussed.

We'll be working to set up some field trips for people to go to Wilson to get a tour and ask more questions at some point, so watch for those events as they will be more formal registration to help keep track of numbers.

Thanks to everyone that came out.

If you won't be attending Google I/O in person, then the next best thing is to attend a Google I/O Extended event. The one in Chapel Hill is shaping up to be pretty great. Spread the word!
 
Chapel Hill is hosting a Google I/O Extended on May 28 at the Freedom Forum Conference Center at Carroll Hall at UNC-Chapel Hill. Please join us as we watch Google I/O from SF. We will also host a code lab, hear from Googlers in the Chapel Hill office and enjoy great food and SWAG. Google, ibiblio.org, UNC School of Journalism and Mass Communications, UNC School of Information and Library Science and the UNC Department of Computer Science are among our event supporters. Space is limited. Attendees must register via this G+ page to attend. #io2015extended

Can't beat +Paul Lewis when  #perfmatters  for your web apps. Take the new, free +Udacity course with him and +Cameron Pittman at the helm. Unfortunately, I cannot confirm whether +Jake Archibald makes a cameo in a sped-up chase scene to the tune of Yakety Sax.

https://www.udacity.com/course/ud860
This course will demystify the browser's rendering pipeline and make it easy for you to build high performance web apps .

Sweet, you can debug IE11 (and Spartan, soon) via the Chrome debug protocol (and DevTools): http://bit.ly/1O5jPvX - kudos to the IE team for building and releasing this!
