Remember, there's something special for the best extension built this semester ;)
Good luck building great extensions!
The knustGTUG's Android Developer Party has gotten the developer community of KNUST to pay some attention to the world of mobile applications.
Have you heard about the Android Developer Challenge?
Listen to the knustGTUG on Focus FM this and every Wednesday from 6 to 7pm. We tackle technology news and trends and lots of random computer-related stuff. Representing the knustGTUG are Edward Pie, P.K. Opoku, Fred Adu Kumi and Kanda Guard.
It has been decided: the knustGTUG is developing an application to provide an online backup system for mobile phones. This way, losing your cellular device will not mean you lose all your contacts, memos, messages, etc.
The project development has officially begun!
The knustGTUG has now officially been entirely introduced to the Google App Engine. The morning's event took us all through HTML and CSS and web application development on the App Engine framework with python. All code written at the event can be found here and as always, check out our useful links for information about the App Engine.
We've gotten the go ahead to see our program (The Google Docs Campaign) through. In light of this, our program originally scheduled for the semester may be adjusted to fit this in. The calendar will be revised accordingly.
An IRC page has just been added to the site. For all those who wanted a place we could all get together online and do stuff, check it out!
The knustGTUG semester kicked off with our Introduction to Programming with Python event at the Royal Parade Grounds. Attendance was good and we made good progress with our plan for the semester as a group.
Edward Pie spoke on what programming is and gave a very inspiring talk to get us started in the area. Some files were given out (check out the Useful Links page) and we are well on our way to building amazing applications in python!
