    Sat, 12 Mar 2011, 16:00 - 18:00 in Toronto, Canada

    A few of you have expressed interest in some hands on/getting started practice with Android programming last week. I'm thinking about doing a code jam session outside of the regular monthly meetup. My initial idea is to get together a small group (less than 10) of people, each bring a laptop, build some simple applications together as a practice, ask questions and discuss. This is sort of like an Android study group, open forum kind of deal.
