 I have seen a lot of questions on getting the SDK up and running.
While poking around the net for something else I came across these  
wonderful webcasts and thought I would share them. I have not tried  
the methods on the webcasts as they are for Windows. I am on a mac but  
I watched a couple and it looks to accomplish the same thing with a  
couple (very)slight deviations.
Heres the link:

1. manipulating parts of an image selectively

How can we manipulate parts of an image selectively. For example, I
have a canvas based on bitmap of image I am working on. I would like
to change a circular region on this image to black & white while the
rest of the image remains the same. I am able to get the complete
image in black & white by

Bitmap myBitmap = BitmapFactory.decodeResource(getResources(),
ColorMatrix colorMatrix = new ColorMatrix();
paint = new Paint();
ColorMatrixColorFilter cmcf = new ColorMatrixColorFilter(colorMatrix);

Bitmap blackAndWhiteBitmap = Bitmap.createBitmap(myBitmap.getWidth(),
myBitmap.getHeight(), Bitmap.Config.ARGB_8888);

Canvas drawingCanvas = new Canvas(blackAndWhiteBitmap );
drawingCanvas.drawBitmap(myBitmap, 0, 0, paint);



2. "Android Developers Group for Singapore and South East Asia" IRC channel is up

That is great and I think we will have some good conversations. Is there any
other developers from Sri Lanka ?
