Our April meetup opens with a short talk from Matt Wear on making beautiful springy animations on Android with the Facebook Rebound library. He'll walk through a few examples of scaling, rotation and translation animations and share his recent experience using Rebound to create "Skittles" menus in Evernote's Android clients. Here is a quick video demo of "Skittles": http://goo.gl/O5kqHb

The main presentation is about WebRTC on Google Glass. The developers from Pristine will show how they built a Google Glass based communication platform for healthcare in two months, from concept to MVP. They'll cover the technical challenges associated with using WebRTC in applications on Google Glass and Android devices.  
The goal is to provide the audience with a high level overview of WebRTC and some common challenges and pitfalls one faces while building Android applications that use WebRTC.  You should walk away with enough guidance to bootstrap a WebRTC-based Android client of your own.

Presenters: 
Patrick Kolencherry, CTO at Pristine 
Mark Troutfetter, VP Engineering at Pristine 
Arik Yaacob, Senior Media Architect at Pristine 
Aaron Alaniz, Mobile Software Engineer at Pristine 
Rahul Behera, Mobile Software Engineer at Pristine 
Danail Dimov, Senior Engineer, Android at Mutual Mobile

Dart Flight School is an introduction to the Dart programming language from Google. There will be an overview of the language followed by a presentation on using Dart with Angular and Polymer. If you're already using Angular with JavaScript, come see what Dart has to offer and get some exposure to Polymer: the browser polyfill library that implements and influences web standards such as custom elements, data bound templates, and pointer events.

About the Speakers:

Charles d'Harcourt is an independent contractor working in Austin, TX and Palo Alto, CA. He previously was in Google's Chrome team, working on Chrome's application, extension, and notifications infrastructure. Since leaving Google, Charles ported the samples and text from angularjs.org to Dart for Google's future angulardart.org site. Charles is passionate about web applications as the future of application development and excited about how modern technologies like Angular, Polymer, and Dart allow those applications to be more structured and more powerful. In a previous life Charles created iTunes U and co-created the iTunes Music Store and the WebObjects web application framework on which Apple's iTunes, apps, and online stores are built. 

You can Learn more about Charles at charles.dharcourt.com

John Talley is the CTO at sonarDesign, located in Austin, TX. John and his team have been stealthily developing an application content creation, distribution, and monetization platform that will be announced at SXSW in March. The sonar team has written over 100,000 lines of Dart code while creating their platform and utilizing Dart on both the client and the server side of the service. John’s passion and firm belief in the future of the mobile web drive him to seek modern technologies that provide the structure to create truly powerful applications. Before co-founding sonarDesign, John provided technical leadership in online, mobile, and console game development after an early career in aerospace designing the space station guidance system and a space shuttle engineering simulation for NASA.

Come join a tech talk on building native-capable web apps using the full power of a Chrome browser mixed with the magic of Node.js. We'll go through the basics that will explain how you can build apps that will shatter conceptions of web technology in desktop apps across major platforms.

Our primary goal is to provide valuable, high quality information to software developers in the Austin area. We encourage member participation and strive for a mix of speakers from local members and experts to Google evangelists and product team members. We occasionally do co-meetings with other groups such the Austin Android User Group to cover topics of mutual interest.
