GDG Philippines is organizing a seven-week Android Fundamentals Study Jams on February-March 2015. This is part of the Google Developers Study Jams, free series of global, community-run, in-person study groups. The first jam session is presented in partnership with Udacity and will follow their Android Fundamentals curriculum. This series will be led by certified Google Developer Group facilitators.
For the GDG Philippines Android Study Jams, there will be a total of seven Saturday sessions. The first six sessions will be for the six lessons of the course (one lesson per week). In each session, we will have a short discussion of the lesson for the week (questions, challenges, etc) and participants can work on their individual projects. (For each week's sessions, participants should have already finished the lessons for the week.) The seventh session will be for the presentation of final projects.
Date: Every Saturday from February 07 to March 21
Time: 01:00 PM to 05:00 PM
Venues: See “What is the schedule for the sessions?” below.
