Ringing in 2017 with Facebook

Ringing in 2017 with Facebook

We've always had great turnouts for our meetups, but our most recent one drew an official headcount of 204 members! Maybe it was the talks, smooth check-in process, or maybe even the pizza? Whatever it was, thanks for helping us ring in a new year of meetups with a spectacular crowd!

Recap: Road to Droidcon meetup at Squarespace

It's the week before Droidcon NYC! As you can imagine, things are pretty busy here at touchlab. The team got to relax at Squarespace last Thursday though, along with 100+ meetup members who came out for Droidcon preview talks and sunset views over the Hudson.

5 things I did in McLean, Virginia this weekend (Android Summit recap)

5 things I did in McLean, Virginia this weekend (Android Summit recap)

Last Thursday, I flew to McLean, Virginia for Android Summit, a two day conference + hackathon sponsored by Capital One, benefitting Women Who Code.

I was invited to Android Summit to give a talk about mutative design, and to coincide with the event I released a new post on Project Phoebe, answering more questions about how mutative design will work and announcing Helios, a new tool for researching mutative patterns.

Now that I'm back, I wanted to post a quick listicle about what I did during my trip.

August meetup: Realm, and Smoke & Mirrors in Android

August meetup: Realm, and Smoke & Mirrors in Android

For August, we returned to the lovely, very cushiony auditorium of our August sponsor, The American Express Company. It's a bit of a walk over to the west side, but that didn't stop the 116+ members who came out. (Did it help that the World Trade Center is a lured PokemonGo stop??)
