End of year highlights: NY Android Developers Meetup

Here at touchlab, we're always thankful for a number of things; our NYC Android community will always be one of them. Here are a few meetup highlights from the second half of 2015. (and we didn't even get to our annual holiday drinks yet!) 1) Our meetup has grown to 3,100+ members and has an expected turnout of 75-100+ developers at every meetup - whoa!

We're thankful for energetic meetup members who bring experience and inquisitive questions, hosts who go above and beyond their (already crazy) workloads to coordinate with us, and sponsors who make our monthly meetups possible.

Here's to 2016! - the touchlab team
