Happy Saint Patricks Day


Thanks to everyone who made our first Android Workshop last night. All of us are new to the Android platform so its going to be a collective voyage of discovery. Our starting point is getting everyone comfortable with the SDK. People shared interesting projects they had encountered todate which ranged from the fields of art to gaming to location based services. With the freedom and flexibility the platform offers it promises to be an interesting journey. Paul was kind enough to offer 091 Labs use of a spare ubuntu box on his server rack which we have gratefully accepted.

We also started the conversation about ideas for our monthly guest speaker series. Recent talks mentioned which inspired were Danah Boyd SXSW talk on Privacy and Publicity, Tim Berners-Lee TED 2010 talk on the year Open Data went worldwide and the IGNITE Dublin series. If you have a particular topic or speaker you would like included in our monthly series then please get in contact and let us know. Lastly wishing everyone a great Saint Patricks Day wherever your spending it – checkout todays special TOG Hackathon to join in the festivities. :)
