These are short Saturday morning (or Sunday) classes for people who are new to Android mobile programming.

This class is not meant to replace other beginning Android classes in the Bay Area, nor is it meant to duplicate the online Android documentation and tutorials. Each concept will be pre-digested for you. Each code example will be thoroughly explained. This also means that I won't really be covering 90% of what Android has to offer.

I do hope however, that by this limited choice of topics, that this will give you the ability and the confidence to delve deeper into the other parts of the Android development platform.

That said, we will cover:

  • Common installation SDK troubleshooting issues & their solutions
  • How to add a button
  • How to attach an event to a button
  • Things you should check when things go wrong
  • Android Architecture
  • Activity & Service life-cycles
  • Relevant Java concepts & syntax
  • How to save the state of an application
  • How to make an application that adds two numbers together
  • The one layout you'll end up using most of the time
  • How to detect the phone shaking
  • How to play audio, and what format you should select
  • Content providers, an example
  • How to make an http request using cookies
  • Where to go next?

An electronic handout with the slides and the code samples will be sent out right-after class.
