Geek Night 10/20/2010

We had twelve hardy open-sourcers this evening.
If you've seen any of my previous session reports a lot will look familiar.

Android support in IntelliJ CE

I haven't done any iPhone or Android development.

I have downloaded XCode, but since I'm becoming partial to IntelliJ, I'm interested in this announcement. I still don't have a smart phone. Is a droid possibly in my future?
