For our last meetup of the winter, we headed to Facebook NY to learn from Tom Wilson (Blue Apron) and Jason Sendros (Facebook). The Facebook recruiting team were amazing as usual and treated our group to pizza, beer, and plenty of refreshments from their impressive refrigerator in the event room. Kang Zhang (Instagram) welcomed the group on behalf of our sponsor before Kevin introduced Tom to kick off talks.
We don't usually throw Android squeeze dolls into the crowd to start the night... but after few years of running this meetup, it's okay to change things up ;) For November (sponsored by American Express) we headed to Oscar Health's SoHo office. May we take a moment to appreciate the bountiful pizza that Yang ordered. Oscar may have taken the prize for best pizza so far...
For our first meetup after Droidcon, we returned to Facebook's spacious NY headquarters in the East Village. Kevin Schultz and Brent Watson returned as speakers and each taught our group something new.
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.
