Android Game Development Workshop Part 2

This is the second session of our 2-part workshop designed to give you a crash course in Android Game development.

Logistics:

The workshop is from 10am until 3pm. The workshop will start on time, so don't be late.

Food and caffeine will be provided.

There is free parking on the weekends. Best place to park will be in front of the School of Communications (5100 Brunson Dr)

 

Prerequisites:

Working code from the first workshop. (grab the code here;review the slides here)

Laptop with a working Android SDK setup (Install the SDK)

Hello World on Android 2.2 running in emulator or on your phone (Hello World guide)

    It was really great to follow along as our little demo progressed into a fleshed out game.

    Srinivas, on second tought, this is actually an Android built in class. Make sure your project is properly setup - e.g. an Android project, not a Java class library, etc.

    Just make sure you can run the hello world source code. Anyone of us can give you the part one of the app. You probably downloaded part of version two that Donald was probably in the process of uploading

I have taken source code for part-1 from https://github.com/machinezilla/DroidRunJump. But I don't one of required dependent files which is 'SurfaceHolder.java'. Can somebody advise where to get this file?

    Thank you.

    Need to setup your enviroment to MAKE android Apps? NO it's not just the "android SDK" it's much more. This video I found will step you through it all: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dzm1xTy8a-A you MUST be able to have a basic "hello world" working on your android phone or emulator for this workshop. Or else you'll be completely lost.
