Android Workshop - Build you first Android app!

  • May 22, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • The Alley NYC

Anyone who is looking to build their first Android application should attend this workshop.

Before attending the workshop please do the following: 

• Install Android Studio - 

• Install Android SDK via SDK Manager (We only care about 4.0+) - 

• If you do not have an Android device install Genymotion and setup a virtual device -

(if you run into any issues, feel free to contact me or show up early so I can try to help)

We will cover:

• Basics of Java - variables, functions, logic statements (ie: if, if else), and loops. 

• Cover the basics of Android Studio IDE and the Android project structure. 

• Develop an Android application! (more info below)

What will we build:
We are going to develop a simple jokes application and in the process you will learn how to work with the following:

• Activities and AndroidManifest.xml

•  Android resource files Creating layouts via GUI interface and with XML.

• Referencing layout elements to display text to the user and handle button clicks.

After the above is finished, we will extend the application to email the joke to a desired email address by using Sendgrid's Java library.

Class will be taught by Michael Carrano
