If you’re an Android developer based in or around Sydney, you should consider joining the Google Developer Group (GDG) Sydney Meetup Group.

This month’s GDG Meetup in July 30 sees two Android presentations:

Ankur Kotwal, an Android Developer Advocate at Google, will be discussing Whats new and important in Android. This presentation seems especially timely, given the Google event scheduled for July 24 at which we’re expecting to see Android 4.3 unveiled.

Darren Younger will also be speaking about Near Field Communication (NFC) and how to use it to “bring your apps into the physical world” beyond just facilitating mobile payments, offering a chance to learn how businesses including Canon, Samsung and Telstra are starting to use NFC and the results they’re achieving.

There’s not many spots remaining at the moment, but if you join the group now you’ll ensure you don’t get left out of the next meet. Of course, you can also use the Meetup App to ensure you’re kept in the loop, too!

Before discovering the Nexus One, Jason thought he didn't need a smartphone. Now he can't bear to be without his Android phone. Jason hails from Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane depending on his mood and how detailed a history you'd like. A web developer by day with an interest in consumer gadgets and electronics, he also enjoys reading comics and has a worryingly large collection of Transformers figures. He'd like to think he's a gamer, but his Wii has been in a box since he moved to Sydney, and his PlayStation Vita collection is quite lacking. Most mornings you'll find him tilting at various windmills on Twitter - follow @JM77 and say hi!

I think I need to move to Syd. There’s nothing like this in Adelaide
