Announcing a new Meetup for South Florida Android Developers!

What: Android Workshop #5 - Downloading files, local file storage and bg threads

When: Saturday, October 2,[masked]:00 PM

Where: The White Table Foundation
1109 E Las Olas Blvd
Ft Lauderdale, FL 33301

We'll build another app from scratch - this one designed to teach us how to download files over the internet, store them locally and, since it's a bad idea to do those in the main UI thread, how to run long-running tasks in a background thread.

Having attended the previous workshops is not a requirement, but you need to:
- have a working Eclipse/Android sdk setup
- be able to compile and run a HelloWorld app, either in a simulator or on your Android device of choice
(if you are not at this point, see resources below, and feel free to email me if you get stuck)

If you are starting from scratch, these resources will be useful:
Install the SDK: http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html
Hello World: http://developer.android.com/resources/tutorials/hello-world.html
Application Fundamentals: http://developer.android.com/guide/topics/fundamentals.html

See you Saturday!
