About the Bootcamp
The advent of mobile computing heralds a new and brilliant age of technology--one far more social, mobile, seamless, and satisfying than the PC age could ever be. This course will instruct students on the fundamentals of mobile application development using Android Development Tools (ADT) and Eclipse. We will cover the fundamentals of Java, Android architecture, as well as many of the amazing features of Android, including geo-location and voice recognition, among others. Using ADT and Eclipse, students will learn to create Android applications for both Android phones and tablets. User interface and application design considerations specific to mobile technologies will also be explored.
Over the course of two days (April 6-7, 2013), students will be given a practical introduction to the Android development platform, and approaches necessary to build an Android application. The bootcamp will consist of lectures, hands-on coding exercises, and discussion.
