DROIDHACK - 7th May @ The Code Factory

DROIDHACK - 7th May @ The Code Factory

Hey Everyone,

I've kinda been wanting to get some people together for some Android 
hacking and it's been a bit tough doing any hacking at the monthly meet 
ups.

Some of you may have noticed that I've really wanted to hack on Spencer 
Elliotts Mercury project, and I think this would be a great project for 
people new to Android to work on as well.  The goal is to go in with the 
project in it's current state and come out with a more engineered solution
as well as improving the interface of the application.

You can find the project here:
http://bitbucket.org/csaunders/mercury

The important part are the issues in the tracker.  If you have Java 
experience, there is much of the code you can go through and help figure 
out features that could be added to make the project better.

If you don't have experience on Android it's not a problem.  We're hoping 
to have enough people who understand Android so that we can pair up and 
roll out some awesome features and hopefully guide you into Android 
development.

If you are interested, respond to this message along with whether you 
would be interested in mentoring or learning.

Cheers,

Chris

Count me in.

Very interested in learning. My Java is weak weak weak, but my will is 
strong. Yes, I know Java is not the force, but hey....

Yeah, I can make it as well.  It will be after a late night of playing
hockey so I'll do my best not to snap at anyone.  I can help mentor
people in Java.
