March Meetup

2014-02-25 | droidmtl | Events, Uncategorized

Hello everyone, our next meetup will be taking place on wednesday, 5th of March, 2014 at 18h30, at l’Amère à Boire.

We have two great talks this month! François Proulx will give us an overview of the latest trends in mobile security, and Philippe Breault will present an introduction to building Android Studio plugins.

Latest trends in Mobile Security

by Francois Proulx


François Proulx is a senior mobile application developer who has worked on dozens of iOS applications since the very beginning of the Apple iOS platform. Over the past few years he has switched his focus to security. He spends a lot of his free time participating in Capture the Flag events (CTFs) and organizing the NorthSec security competition.


Last AppSecUSA 2013 had a great line up of talks, especially regarding mobile applications. This session will be covering all the hottest presentations about mobile security by doing an overview from what we saw at AppSecUSA, all with some slides and snippets of presentations that was recorded at the event. Discussion will be encouraged within the audience as this will be more a dynamic event than a regular talk.

Introduction to building Android Studio plugins

by Philippe Breault


Hey There!

My name is Philippe Breault, I am a software developer living in Montréal (Canada) and my job/hobby is Android.

I have been working on the Android platform since 2010 and I hope that sharing what I have learned will help people get proficient in Android faster!


With this presentation, Philippe will be showing us how to develop plugins for Android Studio. Note that all products based on the IntelliJ Platform (IntelliJ IDEA, RubyMine, WebStorm, PhpStorm, PyCharm and AppCode) share the same underlying platform API, and as such this talk will be of benefit to anyone working with one of these IDEs.
