Events


  • The Mobile Devices SIG meets alternatively with the WebDev SIG on the second Wednesday of the even months.
  • Meetings start at 7:30PM at SPRS in Scotch Plains, NJ.
  • E-Mail Chairperson Brenda Bell.
  • The Mobile Devices SIG focuses largely on current-generation cellphones and smartphones (such as Blackberry, Android, iPhone) which bridge the gap between basic cell phones and traditional computers, and how they can help you manage and organize your life.

    The Mobile Devices SIG focuses largely on current-generation cellphones and smartphones (such as Blackberry, Android, iPhone) which bridge the gap between basic cell phones and traditional computers, and how they can help you manage and organize your life.

    Our membership is diverse, ranging from those who have recently acquired their first, basic cellphone to those who develop applications for today's modern smartphones, iPods, and ultraportable computers. While we expect to spend much of our time investigating the built-in features and specialized applications available to modern smartphones, if you bring your basic (or multimedia) cell phone, iPod, or other mobile device with questions on how to use it, where to find applications, or what features they have, we are always happy to help!

    At our inaugural meeting, I'm looking to get introductions (name, device(s), what attendees are looking to get out of the meeting/activity), distribution of levels of expertise (expect to find this through conversation/random access/what one wants from the activity), discuss some idea of what mobile devices are, and get into some random-access and platforms/applications.

    What I'm expecting as a general format for people used to a computer-club meeting is something on the order of:

    • Introduction
    • Random Access
    • Main Activity/Activities
    • Beginners' Corner
    • Topic of the Day: Application, Operating System, Device Highlights
    • Developers'/Expert Corner
    • Topic for next meeting
    • Any activities to schedule between now and next meeting
    • Close

    This is subject to change based on the audience/participant makeup -- I can see this going anywhere from adding half-day courses on basic cell phone operation (for which I expect mostly senior citizens) to workshops (either within the activity or scheduled separately) on using particular operating systems (Blackberry, Android, WebOS, iOS, Windows Mobile, etc.) to discussions of applications and classes of applications (OS-independent/agnostic) and onwards...
