Plans for Year 2013
(please add your own input and I'll refine this post accordingly)
* Help our members achieve their own goals where it comes to programming mobile applications and doing it professionally.
* Get a core group of our members to start using Github as their own personal blogging platform and public code repository. See https://help.github.com/articles/creating-pages-with-the-automatic-generator and https://github.com/mojombo/jekyll/wiki/sites 
* Still focus on mobile-related programming topics, but use our new 'Google Developer Group' affiliation to attract more speakers that can talk about the various Google server-side APIs. 
* Have a syllabus ready for new programmers and people learning programming who are just joining our group.  
* Transition our membership to this Google+ group to make it easier to suggest/vote on topics and use tools like Google Hangout and Google + party-mode.
* Create more hands-on interactive learning sessions, both for offline and online interactions. 
* Find a secondary host that's willing to host some of our meetings. The Alameda Free Library has been great to us and it's still an awesome state-of-the-art meeting location that we'll still continue to use, but because of the recent City budget cutbacks, we don't have as many convenient hours available to us as we used to have.

Year 2012 in Retrospective
Formally, we've covered topics such as Android Programming, Phone Gap/WebViews, Getting Started in Android, Selling Apps in the Different App Stores, Adobe Air, Google TV, YouTube APIs, Git, Touch Design, and using other forms of cross-platform mobile development tools. Informally, because many of our meetings are still informal, we've covered many other Android-related topics as well. 

We've grown a modest collection of Android/mobile-related programming books that were donated to us by O'Reilly (that are available for anyone to check out at the Alameda Free Library).
