Now that we know how to build some basic Android apps, it's time to expand on that knowledge.

Marko Gargenta, who is responsible for Android training at Marakana (and happens to be my brother), offered to give another talk, this time on a wide range of data persistence options available in the Android SDK, including: - Shared Preferences - SQLite Database - Content Providers - File System

As before, you can either sit back, relax, and enjoy the show... or you can take a more active role, and follow along, building your own version of the GolfScore app. If you opt for the latter, you need to bring your own laptop - already configured with the Android SDK (including Eclipse).

For those of you that are already proficient with Android, you may still want to swing by, share your wisdom with the fellow attendees, and network with others in the Android community.

Marakana will provide drinks and pizzas for this event and we'll give a way some free Android books, courtesy of Pearson Education and O'Reilly Media.

Because the space is limited, make sure you RSVP sooner... rather than later if you want to reserve your seat.

If any of you would like to give a talk at one of our future meetups (e.g. share your wisdom about a specific API, or talk about an app you built), I want to hear from you!

About Marko Gargenta Marko Gargenta has been programming in Java even before it was named Java. His background is in very large enterprise web application development but he's also had a fair-share of UI experience having rewritten the entire AWT into lightweight components before Java Swing ever came out. He's a big believer in agile development processes, being a certified ScrumMaster himself as well as contributor to eXtreme Programming methodology.

Marko is a professional consultant and instructor. He's taught teams of organizations such as Sony-Ericsson, Ericsson Canada, MetroPCS, Experian, DoJ, DoD, and many others. He's published a PHP/MySQL by Example book with Prentice Hall (world's largest tech publisher) as well as created many of Marakana's courseware, including the Android series.
