      +Peter, Barbara: The video suggests installing the NDK plug-in so I selected both items to install additional software onto Eclipse. The selection of the NDK item triggered the dependency on the NDK - when I don't select that item the installation completes.

      I will need to make sure I redo that video to take away any reference to having to install the NDK plug in. It doesn't normally create an issue like this. You don't need it however. I'm glad to hear all is installed now. Good luck writing java and creating Android apps!

    Here is some parking and transportation just in case this is your first time attending a workshop:

    There are several public parking options around downtown San Jose. A small parking lot nearby (on Delmas Ave, between W. Santa Clara St. and W. San Fernando St.) offers parking for $3.50 (daytime only; when Sharks game begins in the evening – prices will go up). Not sure if there is a Sharks game tomorrow but this is the cheapest parking around.

    There is nothing that really needs to be done in preparation for this coming weekend's workshop. Bring a computer with you and I will run through the tools install on Sat morning. While folks are download and installing the tools, I will discuss the Java basics, etc. so we will "multitask" until lunch when we can troubleshoot any installation problems. Bring a Windows or a Mac computer with you in order to get the most out of the workshop!

      You don't need to know java to take this workshop you will learn basic java as well as how to use it in the Android development platform. This workshop focuses on beginning java skills. It should be a good "jump start" for your Android development interests. I will also be teaching an Android development workshop where the focus is less on java programming and more on Android Application development.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
