We're out at the big GDG Summit before I/O, leaving our mark! We're learning a lot that we hope to bring back and make an even better community for all the Google devs in the DFW area!

We know there are some C# developers in this area. Here's your chance to play with Android. This one is on a Tuesday due to timing with the speaker.

Presentation details: 
Xamarin enables developers to create native iOS, Android, and Mac apps in C# and share code across all platforms while providing 100% API coverage on each platform. In this session we will go over all of the products on the Xamarin platform including the development tools and how they work under the hood to leverage the .NET framework in iOS, Android, and Mac apps. We will dive into creating Android apps in C# inside of Xamarin Studio & Visual Studio comparing how it would be done in Java and build our first Android app in C#. We will cover how to design user interfaces with Xamarin and how to add rich functionality with pre-built components. To finish it off we will cover how to share the code we wrote to reach over 2.6 Billion devices running other platforms such as iOS and Windows.

Bio: 
James Montemagno is a Developer Evangelist at Xamarin and Android Fanboy. He has been a .NET developer for over a decade working in a wide range of industries including game development, printer software, and web services. Previously, James was a professional mobile developer on the Xamarin platform for over 3 years, with several published apps on iOS, Android, and Windows. He can be found on Twitter @JamesMontemagno and blogs code regularly on his personal blog www.MotzCod.es

NEST Interest Survey and Call for Speakers: We're thinking of dong a Nest Thermostat hacking meetup in February. What's the interest? Would you attend and do you already have expertise in the area?  We could discuss interesting automation opportunities related to Auto and Wear also.

Get a jump start on your new years resolution to hone your android skills.

Come out and work through a simple coding challenge. These are designed to be simple exercises that should we provide a modest challenge,  promote better design and produce functioning code.  
It isn't competition, but a chance to all get together and explore an area of android. 

Focus: Android Wear.

Please come with Android Studio installed as google highly suggests using it for Android Wear development. Also, be sure to RSVP on the meetup.com site: http://www.meetup.com/Dallas-Android-Development-Group/events/219151352/

Food:
We will have food available at 6:30, and plan to start the coding at 7PM.

Location:
We have a new location! We are now at the Aberdeen on the 8th floor. Make sure to take the North elevators up to the 8th floor, as the South Elevator entrance is not setup to receive guests.

Parking:
Guests can park in the levels of the Aberdeen parking garage on the north side.

Happy Friday everyone!

We've received a special coupon code for the Big Android BBQ from Aaron Kasten himself for members of the Dallas Android Developer group. If you use the coupon code "DADG" (without the quotes, all caps), you can get $50 off, making the cheapest ticket just $25. That's probably worth it just for the BBQ alone!

There will be 3 Googlers at the BBQ keynoting and presenting: Reto Meier, Timothy Jordan, and Chet Haase. They are all extremely entertaining, and will probably teach you a lot. Along with all the other great speakers, there is a ton to do, and learn, so if you can make it, even just for Saturday, you'll probably have a great time.

We look forward to seeing you all there!

If you'd like to interact with the Googlers who are working on Android M, they are doing a Live Hangout with Q&A later today. It's at 5PM CDT, so it'll be a great way to start your weekend!
 
Join us for a two-hour live-streamed developer event, wherever you are; home, office, school. You will be able to test the new Android M Developer Preview announced at Google I/O and ask the Googlers who built it.
This Hangout On Air is hosted by GDG North America. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

This month's meeting will start with a short webinar from 6:30-7:00 and then continue with a job scheduler coding lab till 9pm.

_______________________________________________________________

A Peek at Job Scheduler:

One of the additions to Android 5.0, courtesy of the Project Volta initiative, is JobScheduler. This is an enhanced version of AlarmManager, allowing you to apply additional criteria beyond time to indicate when work should be performed. On the other hand, it is also a bit more restrictive, requiring a special JobService subclass to handle the background work.

In this 30-minute webinar, we will review how you can use JobScheduler in your Android applications, to offer functionality at lower battery cost for the user.

__________________________________________________________________

About the Speaker

Mark Murphy is the founder of CommonsWare and the author of The Busy Coder’s Guide to Android Development. He is active in supporting the Android developer community, from answering questions on StackOverflow to publishing sample code and reusable components as open source.

This month Nathan from Dialexa (dialexa.com) will be joining us to talk about augmented reality/virtual reality.  The meeting is outside of our normal Thursday's this month so expect to meet on Friday (if you didn't notice the date).

Nathan will be presenting about the Moverio BT-200 from a developer perspective. 
The presentation opens the discussion for the emerging AR/VR landscape and the devices available today.

We will look at the hardware and capabilities of the BT-200, especially how it is unique.

Then he will go over getting the developer environment setup for the BT-200.

Next we will look at some 3rd party SDKs for augmented reality that will help developers start developing more complete solutions quicker.

Finally we will look at some of the areas and applications that others are developing to further inspire developers.

Prelaunch Labs will have some of the Moverio BT-200 devices available for demonstration.  The device supports Android 4.0 so most 4.0 compatible APK's should run on the device.
