Android Development Workshop with Girl Develop It (GDI)

  • Apr 21, 2013 · 10:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

This is a female-only development class aimed for members of Girl Develop It.

Join Girl Develop It -

We are offering a 6-hour hands-on workshop with breakfast, lunch and snacks provided. The class will be six hours, from 10am to 4pm. There will be an break at noon for a catered lunch and one additional short break.

If you understand the basics of programming, but you want to get started with developing Android apps, then this is the workshop for you. This workshop requires you to know the basics of programming in Java and understand basic object-oriented principles.

This is an introductory workshop for Android development, which will introduce you to everything needed to start building Android applications.  If you do not have any programming experience, then this is not the workshop for you (please check out our beginner course, targeted exactly for this case: Introduction to Java).

Workshop format

The most effective way to learn programming is just to dive in. Each topic will be briefly covered in a few minutes of lecture and accompanied by several live exercises.  In addition to the exercises, we will be building a 2D "Snakes" game collaboratively applying each topic as it is introduced.
