Android 101 Development Class

November 29th, 2010 2 comments

Learn how to program your own custom applications for Android devices.  This class will go through the quick and easy method using Google’s AppInventor then go into details on how to use Eclipse to design more complicated applications.  This class will mainly focus on creating GUIs, Activities, Intents and callbacks as well as AlertBuilder.  We will also discuss how to run your application in an emulator and directly on your device.

You will want to have Eclipse installed with the android tools ahead of time.  See (Get the Java or RDP version of Eclipse)  If you are having problems getting this installed then Craig will be there at 6 to help but class will start promptly at 7pm.

December 16th, 7pm at Hive13 Hackerspace

Class cost is $20  (Members $10)  Member codes will go out in email.

Limited Seating. We will accept money at the door if seats are still available.

New Membership Tiers!

November 24th, 2010 Comments off

New Membership TiersAt the Hive we are really excited to announce new membership tiers!  We are now offering $50 a month for FULL membership to new members.  This is the same level of access as our old $100 tier, which gives you a door code, 24/7 access to the space, lockers, discounts on classes and the admiration of your peers!

We are having a membership drive to get 15 new members.  This number is important because with 15 new members we can ensure that the overall membership to the space can be lowered to $50/mo for good and still pay our rent!  There is also a little red meter under the subscribe  button on the main page so everybody can follow along on the progress of the drive.

To become a full member goto the main page at and click “Subscribe” on the right hand side.

A little lower down the the sidebar is another new tier called the Elite tier.  This is a donation tier.  If you can’t make it to the Hive but you still want to support us, then this is the tier for you!  Members will also get discounts on upcoming classes at the hive!  If you are a full time student then you can sign up for the Elite tier, fill out the student application (still to come) and you can be a full member as well!

Please spread this message around.  We need to make this membership drive a success!
