#365: The Transitive Property of Programming


Release Notes Happy Hour on May 14! See show notes for details.

So, it turns out that Joe is Android-curious. Today we talk to him about his interest in learning Android development, the current market for Android developers, and whether diving into Android might make sense for his contracting business.

Release Notes Happy Hour

This pandemic has cancelled all the conferences that we wanted to attend this year, so to help bring people together we are hosting a Release Notes Happy Hour on Thursday, May 14, 2020 at 6:00 PM Eastern. That’s 3:00 PM in Los Angeles, and 11:00 PM in London, England. This will be a Zoom call that makes use of Zoom’s “breakout rooms” feature to divide everyone into smaller groups. Our hope is to create an environment that is conducive to making meaningful connections and having interesting conversations. If you’ve ever attended a dine-around at one of our conferences, you’ll have an idea of what we’re hoping for. There’s no cost, but you do need to register so that we can send you the information you need to connect to the call. Get all the details and sign up on our website at releasenotes.tv/happyhour.
