BLU Desktop SIG


Thanks to Android's use of Linux for its kernel, Linux is the most popular operating system in use by consumers in the world. However, many people aren't taking advantage of the freedom this permits, but rather allowing themselves to be walled in by the proprietary interfaces that come with their Android devices. For April's meetup, we introduce you to a man with the keys to set you free. Adam Stroud is the lead developer at RunKeeper and author of Professional Android Sensor Programming. He is a self-proclaimed "phandroid" and is an active participant in the Android virtual community on StackOverflow and Android Google groups.
