Tips and Tools for a successful Hackathon – July 13th 2013

2013-07-09 |by droidmtl | Comments Off on Tips and Tools for a successful Hackathon – July 13th 2013 | Uncategorized

===

Presented as part of Montréal Startup-Weekend, our session will concentrate on Android development, but should be of interest for mobile developer in general. We’ll be reviewing some of our favorite tools for rapid development. We’ll cover:

  • Quick and easy source code management (SourceTree + GitHub/BitBucket)
  • Rapid prototyping (proto.io, fluidui.com)
  • Rapid Android dev techniques (leveraging IntelliJ’s wizards, using
    Genymotion for demos and development).
  • Leveraging Google’s Android APIs (Maps, push notifications, etc.)
  • What 3rd party APIs to use, and which to avoid in the short term.

Where: Concordia University, EV Building, 1515 Ste-Catherine Ouest

When: July 13 at 3PM

June Meetup

2013-06-24 |by droidmtl | Comments Off on June Meetup | Events, Uncategorized

Eventbrite for Wednesday’s meetup are live, hope to see you all there!

http://gdg-montreal-android-june2013.eventbrite.ca

We have 2 subjects on the agenda this Wednesday

1 – Android Dongles

John Brohan, one of the founders of the original Android-Montreal, will be presenting the technology behind their Stay-in-Touch project this Wednesday:

== start quote ==

This is a presentation about “Android Dongles” which are small Android computers without a screen or battery, they use a television as a screen!
The presentation is more technical with an outline of the capabilities of these devices and then Stay-in-Touch as an example of an app that is well suited to these devices. Warning there are a few code samples, but it mostly relates to demonstrations or discussion of strategies for using these devices (mostly in this case without user input).

== end quote ==

2 – StartupWeekend.

StartupWeekend is taking place the week-end of the 11th and 12th of July.

We’ll be talking about and demoing good technologies and APIs to use at this type of event, and we might have a small surprise for people interested in participating. Also, if you’re interested in acting as a coach for the event, please come at Wednesday’s meetup and let us know.
