Silicon Valley Code Camp : October 1 & 2, 2016session

Hello Android - An Introduction to Android App Development

From zero to your first Android App. There is a lot to take in, but this session will give an overview of what makes up an Android App and help get you running so that you at least know the right questions to ask when you try it on your own.

About This Session

This session takes you from ground zero on Android development and gives you an easy introduction to the basic components you need to build an Android application. The session does assume some development experience and glosses over some non-Android basics like installing Java and your IDE. But otherwise it does not assume any Android-specific knowledge. By the time you're done you will be able to create a screen, populate it with static and dynamic data, take user input, transition between screens, modify elements at runtime, etc. The app we build will not be very useful in and of itself, but will give you all the tools needed to take the next step. Code is available here. Slides are available here.
