It was great seeing you, meeting Holland and learning about Ikehu. Lets grab coffee the next time you guys visit Oahu.

It's close! I regularly fly to Honolulu to join meetings. There have just been date conflicts. The June meeting I'll be on an Alaskan cruise and the August meeting I'll be at Inbound 2012 in Boston. I'm really going to try to make the July meeting!

I think I prefer Facebook events better. But, either way is cool.

I put the July meeting in my calendar, and it looks like you're doing them the 4th Monday of the month?

Yea!

Two whole friends on TechHui! Super excited!  Thanks Rod. I really want to come down for a tech get-together, but the scheduling just hasn't worked out yet.

Hi Rod-

The 24th would work fine. Just let me know the logistics, head count(approx), time, etc.

Mahalo,

Jim

Aloha Rod. If you post your Big Island Android meetup in the Events area we will feature it and mention it in the newsletter. Good luck! I hope you find other Big Island Android people.
