Dear Android people, (Cyborgs?),
I have four items of news that you’ll probably be interested in:-
1. Android Clinic
The next Android Clinic will be on Saturday October 2nd. By popular demand, we’re running this one at a weekend, as many people have said they have work commitments on week days. If we get a good turn-out, then we’ll run further Clinics on weekends.
The theme for this clinic is “Writing Games”. A few people have expressed an interest in games, and those of you who’ve finished their MDEC prototype might be looking for a new project to undertake.
As usual, the timetable for the days is:-
10:00am to 12:00pm : Presentation (Writing Games)
12:00pm to 1:00pm : Lunch
1:00pm onwards : Individual support for your projects
Please be on time if you want to attend the presentation. Let us know if you’re coming.
…for address, directions, and parking information.
These clinics are supported by Maxis, the Maxis 1Store, and the Maxis developer programme.
2. Our Top Applications
Maxis have asked us to identify applications being developed that will be given special support. These applications are to be sold on the Maxis 1Store. We will be providing help in the form of technical support, pre-submission constructive reviews, discussions about design decisions, etc.
