    Sa 03/29/2014, Womens DIY, Build An Android App: I came thinking 1 person would demo tutorial onscreen, and we'd all follow along, start and finish together. Reading tutorial myself and seeking help as needed worked, though, only I wished I had a secretary or typist as my fingers got weaker from typing.

    I wished Eclipse's copy/paste function hadn't been disabled, as Android-Studio's was enabled. But my haggard typing let me see mistakes, and I almost finished tutorial nonetheless. Will definitely go to tutorial site before 30-days and finish it.

    Glad that ThoughtWorks provided space. I will look online to see if there is Android stuff I can download to laptop, and do tutorial/training offline, since I don't have internet at home, and like to sit cross-legged in the middle of my bed and compute and read.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity and hope there will be many of this sort of programs in weeks to come. In just one day, I have gone from being just an android newbie to becoming an android pro . . . woohoo!

    It was well organized and completely focused. I learned more in a few hrs. than I had over the last 2 wks.

    Hi Bridget. You can use your existing copy of Eclipse. Check out the "USE AN EXISTING IDE" section of the page at https://developer.android.com/sdk. Even if you decide to download the whole bundle, it will not overwrite your existing files (just make sure you put it in a different location and use a different workspace).

    If I already have Eclipse on my laptop with existing projects, will downloading the Android SDK and its Eclipse + ADT plugin overwrite any of my existing files or change my current Eclipse?
