    Google Developer Android Study Jam -- kick off prep
    Patrick Ladd
    @laddp
    @nitya Saturday's presentation mentions joining GDG HV github organization - I don't see a place to request that. Seems to be an invite thing rather than a request thing?

    Hi @laddp -- I;'ll add everyone there on Saturday. Just step up and remind me :-)
    Patrick Ladd
    @laddp
    ok - I'll be out of town all weekend so I'm trying to go through the slides independently today and tomorrow

    @nitya
    no worries -- this was more the crash course review of the content. Starting next week we'll review each lesson independently. Ping me any time (on this chat room) if you have questions. The prep deck was there only to give people some sense of terminology/big picture before they start off ..
    I'll add a reminder on meetup (about the GitHub repo)

    Hi @laddp -- Let me know if you have any questions regarding the tools as described on my slides. Slide 46 and 47 basically go step by step about getting the required platform images, creating a virtual device, starting it on the emulator, creating a "Hello World" app and deploying it to the virtual device. Then, I go over the other tools to show how they help debugging and understanding an app
    all from the terminal.

    @laddp check if you got an invite to the GitHub repo and let me know (just sent those out to folks who gave me a GitHub id..)

    Got it!
    I think https://github.com/orgs/gdg-hudson-valley/people shows people who have accepted

    @nitya
    @laddp yes - I was adding them to the specific team (https://github.com/orgs/gdg-hudson-valley/teams/android-study-jam-2015) but I think it auto-adds to the org as well.

    Action items for me from today's prep session
    1. Specify which SDK versions folks should download and install in the SDK manager

    @nitya
    1. HAXM install issues -- how can I tell that HAXM is running?
    HAXM on Linux platform -- talk to +Rhinemaker (make sure KVM is enabled before installing it)

    Hello Nitya, Enjoyed the presentation yesterday! How do I find the pdf you had mentioned about yesterday?

    @nitya
    Hi everyone -- just a note that this room (android-guide) is a PUBLIC chat room visible to anyone on the web. I am using this to capture Q&A and notes about the study group that can then be converted into notes for the GitBook (Android Guide).
    If you want a comment/conversation to be PRIVATE (non-visible to the web) you have two choices -- select that person's profile icon and click for the 'Chat Privately' option, OR post to the https://gitter.im/gdg-hudson-valley room which is open only to GDG Hudson Valley members.
    Let me know if that helps.

    I think it would be useful to have the video length next to each entry. You would then know how much time you need to get through each part.

    Thoughts?
    Example:

    1. Welcome to Developing Android Apps (1:04)
    2. Introducing your instructors (1:59)
    I am suggesting and also offering to start doing it too for lesson 1.

    @nitya
    @johnshea I love the idea -- please go for it!! I just committed a version with a "Contributors" section on the first page. Just add your name in there when you are done making changes. If you have any issues, let me know
    Nitya Narasimhan
    @nitya
    @johnshea merged your updates (nice!) and updated to link contributors to github profiles as well.

    @johnshea
    @nitya just saw it. thank you.
