Google I/O Extended ATLANTA Session

Alright, it's on, we'll be having a Google I/O Extended Session in Atlanta, and here are the details.

May 10th and 11th from 12noon to 9PM EST
300 Interstate North Pkwy SE Atlanta, GA (more details and map below)

Google will stream the main I/O keynotes each day (starting at 9AM PST, 12noon EST) and then the two main conference rooms. We'll watch the keynotes live, and then vote on which conference room to put on the main screen.

Robert Cooper will head up this event on behalf of GTUG Atlanta (Charlie will be out of town, as will David and Chris, our normal Google hosts.)

The Weather Channel has helped organize this event and will be providing the space where we will meet. The location for the event is 300 Interstate North Pkwy SE Atlanta, GA 30339

Also, The Anteo Group will be helping us out a great deal by providing refreshments. We're still working on the exact menu, and it will depend on how many people sign up, but plan on snacks and drinks being provided.

April Meeting - Android 3.0 "Honeycomb"

On Tuesday April 26th at 7PM Robert Cooper will dive into what's new with Android 3.0 "Honeycomb." Cooper is an experienced Android developer who has ported several apps to 3.0 for use on tablets. Check out his Shortyz crossword puzzle app if you have an Android device, and come to the meeting to see how it works on a fancy Motorola Xoom, or hacked up Nook Color.

We'll also start out with details of the upcoming Google I/O Extended session that will be held in Atlanta (trying to have it all finalized before then).
