Next Coding Dojo!

Hey, everybody, it's time for another dojo! We're meeting on Saturday at 10am to get settled, but we'll wait as long as quarter-after. Then we'll pick a language and a problem and discuss an implementation we're all happy with. After that, we get to work!

We will be diving right into Android App market development for fun and profit.  The host will be providing a samsung galaxy II Android smart phone as well as an android market account and web server with mysql.


The major head-scratching is out of the way because I've already submitted two android apps to the android market that utilize menus, clicks, buttons and ajax to communicate with a web server and mysql database. 

We will be writing it in Java using Eclipse on a PC or Mac.  What the app will do will depend on what the group thinks they can accomplish.  I'm leaning toward using finger touch data to create bubbles on the screen, and then logging those coordinates to a mysql database table.  We will generate the APK file and upload it to my phone and then app store.

If the pair programming sessions get stuck on details, I can get things back on track with a live demo of how this is to be done, but I expect the participants to do most of the heavy lifting for this n-tier android app.

 

Uploading android apps to the market.  Not for the faint of heart, I expect a fully functional app on the app store created by all of us.  See you all there.

    Fantastic, Thanks I've been looking for how to do that. You win 5 Internets. I can't wait to do this again, this Android multi-technology themed dojo was a one time thing, if you want more of it you'll have to petition David Rogers.

    Figured out how to Re-Run the application without having to close the Emulator. In eclipse select in the top nav Run -> Run History -> Select Your Project

    Hey, Eric. Sounds cool. Some of us have done that problem about a year ago on the Code Retreat w/ Corey Haines. It was fun!
    I'm actually not going to be in town this saturday also. Let me know if you want to take the lead on this one, otherwise I'm going to cancel it.
