“Software Development on the Android Platform” – Bryan Noll

Summary:

Bryan will be drawing on the experience he recently
gained by releasing an app to the Android Market.
He will share with you what he learned about the
APIs he had to use. This will include but may not
be limited to the following Android APIs:
Contacts, Sms, Maps and Location. Some details
about the process of getting an app into the
Android Market and making it available for
purchasing will also be covered.
Hopefully he’ll be able to share a few things
that aren’t readily available in books and
quick web searches… the kind of things that
seem to only expose themselves once you’ve
dug in, done what the documentation says you
should do, then find out you’ve got to do
something a little bit differently in order
to get the stuff working.

About the Speaker:

Bryan Noll has been developing software for
nearly a decade now. His technical
experience is in Java, JavaScript,
Grails, Rails and the standard stack
of web tools. He’s done both the
server side and client side thing.

His non-technical approach is to
simply do stuff well – thoroughly
and efficiently – with an
entrepreneurial spirit, communicating
clearly the entire time.

Lately he’s enjoyed getting into the
mobile space by dorking around with
Android development. For further

First Presentation:

“iText” – Greg Holling

Here’s the slide deck: August 2010 iText Presentation

I had to put the code on our Yahoo site due to limitations within WordPress.  Here’s the link: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/djug/files/Presentations/iText-Code.zip

Summary:

The iText library (http://www.itextpdf.com) can be
used to generate PDF files on the fly.
The library has multiple levels of
abstraction, some of which can be confusing,
and the documentation is not always adequate
or complete.

Greg will show an iText example from a
recent servlet/JSP-based project, and will discuss lessons learned and potential gotchas.

About the Speaker:

Greg Holling is a Denver-based independent
software consultant, mentor, and trainer.
He has been developing software with Java
since it was in beta, and has mentored and
trained Java developers at Fortune 500 companies
locally and nationwide.
