Hello World Workshop

  • February 18, 2014 · 6:30 PM

Join us this month as we crack open the Android SDK, explain the tools and IDEs, and host a code workshop that will end with you actually making a simple Android app.

Adam Williams will be leading the workshop. He is one of the two hosts of Boulder Android, and an experienced Android app developer. He will be guiding members through the process of configuring the Android devices for development, installing the SDK and tools, explaining the purposes of the various development tools, and helping the attendees write a "hello world" app.

What To Bring:

• An Android device. It does NOT have to be a phone. It does NOT need an active cell plan. It does NOT have to be rooted. It does NOT have to have the latest version of Android. Any version of Android equal to, or greater than, 2.2 (Froyo) will work.

• A development laptop. Windows, Mac, Linux, and even some other OS' are fine. It doesn't have to be very recent. It only needs to be able to run Android Studio, which is like a very fancy text editor.

• A power cable for your laptop.

• A USB cable to connect your Android Device to your laptop.

What To Do Before The Event:

It would be helpful, though not required, to do the following step before coming. If you do not do this step, please still come, but it would help to have it already complete.

• Download Android Studio for your OS. Either install it, or write down or remember where you put it: http://developer.android.com/sdk/installing/studio.html

We will be pairing in the workshop, so it is fine to only have one set of tools per pair of attendees. It also works fine for each to have their own, but we will still be working in two-person teams.

    Good first shot at hands-on android dev for noobs (like me). This would have been quite daunting w/o Adam's guidance.

    If I already have Eclipse installed, should I install it as the standalone or as Eclipse plugin? Or wait for the meeting?

      Android Studio is Google's variant of IntelliJ. The only requirement for it is Android SDK

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
