Freelance mobile developer, focusing on porting iOS apps to Android as well as original Android app development. I love building mobile apps, and will soon be sharing that passion here locally in RI by starting up a mobile development meetup (MoDevRI). More on that soon...
We have a coworking group in South County where we meet up once a week at a local coffee shop. It's harder to get a space, so that's why we stick to the coffee shops.
As the founder of MoDevRI and a mobile developer myself, I like the idea, but that's a serious investment in hardware and wireless fees. You'd have to be absolutely sure that you'd have enough people using it monthly.
I like what Mob4Hire does; they crowdsource testers with a wide variety of devices, and then a developer can launch a test to any variety of users.
