Johannes Lindenbaum on Android Development

The Regina Technology Community welcomes Johannes Lindenbaum!

Topic: Introduction to Android Development
In the first half of the talk we'll step through Android application concepts: activities and their life cycles, views in xml and programmatically, basic networking, and basic background tasks.

In the second half of the talk we'll create a basic application: setup, hooking up a user interface (UI), and executing some basic logic.

To code along:
  1. Download Eclipse form
  2. Download the Android SDK
  3. Install the Android Developer Tools for eclipse
    1. In eclipse go to Help > Install New Software
    2. Hit "Add", paste
    3. Install the Developer Tools
  4. After that's completed go Help > Android ADK Manager - install at least one platform. For simplicity sake go with 4.0.x (4.1 will also work).
As time is limited, if you'd like to code along, please ensure this setup is working before the presentation. We won't be able to troubleshoot your setup during the talk.
