GDG Montreal Android January Follow-up

Hello everyone,

We’ve had a blast this last Wednesday at the January Meetup, and we wanted to send out a little follow up email on some subjects we touched upon


I’d like to say a quick thank you to everyone who volunteered to give a talk over the next couple of month, we’ll be contacting you this week to try and schedule the February and March lineups, and give you a chance to prepare.

If you are interested in giving a talk, please reach out to Etienne or one of the other organizers and we’ll add you to the upcoming lineup.


I personally received a lot of positive feedback during the Meetup for the idea of organizing App Design Workshops, and to explore some mobile-friendly Client-Server Architecture setups.

We’ll be polling you in the coming weeks to pick between our different subjects, and different timing options (Evening sessions, or week-end afternoon sessions? TBD…)

Android Jobs

Radialpoint has reached out about a Full Stack Mobile Developper position. You can find out more about them here. (Worth a look, they do interesting things)

We also had Aurore visiting from Nurun, another interesting company, who are currently looking for senior Android developper. See the posting here. Find out more about Nurun here.
