    Introduction to Android Class

    The class is one 3 hour session (with 2 minutes breaks). 
    It is structured as three presentations, each 58 minutes long. 

    4:30PM Q&A

    5:00PM Done

    Peter van der Linden, Android Technology Evangelist at Motorola Mobility  

    Peter is the author of several best-selling programming books, including "Just Java" and "Expert C Programming." He has lived and worked in Silicon Valley for the past 24 years for a startup, a Fortune 100 company, and everything in between. Peter is Motorola's Android Technology Evangelist.  Outside the office, Peter is an accomplished "hammockeer" holding state records for style, duration, altitude and an award-winning repose.  Hammockeering is like orienteering, but with fewer waypoints.

    Anna Schaller will also be presenting one of the lectures.
    Anna is a Developer Advocate with Motorola Mobility. She helps third-party developers create great applications for Android devices. Anna began her career as a software engineer at Carnegie Mellon University. She has been involved in the mobile space for the past 10 years, beginning at Palm, where she participated in creating programs and content to help developers create applications for Palm OS. Her work at Motorola continues that role with support for developer programs and services on Android. Anna holds a B.S. degree in Computer Science from the University of Pittsburgh.

    Here is the STUDENT PROFILE:   This class is intended for people who are struggling with their first Android app.  If you have already successfully completed an Android app, you have gone beyond this class already -- please drop out, and give up your seat to a newbie.

    There will not be any hardware given away at this event.  Please don't ask for it.  

    The giveaway is Android programming knowledge.

    These 3 hour long labs are intended for software developers who want to follow along with an instructor as an Android app is developed. Before attending these sessions, participants are expected to configure their development environment onto a laptop by completing the following steps:

    If you run into problems please post your questions on our discussion board at

    If you have an Android phone, bring it, along with a USB cable to your laptop.   

    We are organizing this event as a lecture in which students can follow along on their own laptop with the instructor.

    I thought this event was cancelled.

    I have received a few messages. I received one just a few minutes ago and pounced on it, only to find that there was only a waiting list for me. Somebody must have been really fast, or else something is out of synch.

    Peter, Lawrence, David, and Nelson:
    I have sent a message to each one of you through Meetup, about a potential place to hold this meeting/class. Please let me know if you have received these messages and what you think of it.

    this is still not set up right. NOW it has me recorded as saying NO to the February meeting. All those past RSVP's need to be discarded.

    @Lawrence, David, and Nelson: What parameters will you accept for availability of the room? Is it required to be during the day on a weekday?

  • John Fitzpatrick

    How about paypal as a location?

    Dear members, due to too many people sign in this event and Hacker Dojo can not host so many people due to the safety issue, we have to postphone this class. We will keep everyone posted.

    January 25, 2012

  • Bob O`Bob

    if there are 99, then at least one signed up AFTER I gave up my spot

    January 24, 2012

  • noopur

    I RSVPed as "NO" ...this would have been my first bootcamp... will try next time.

    January 24, 2012

  • lawrence

    Unfortunately, we still have 99 RSVPs. So we have to limit the class to the first 35 who show up with MOTODEV Studio for Android installed AND configured.

  • Roy Feldman

    If it could be announced that the class would be made available on video, it could get more registrants to give up their spots. Otherwise there are going to be a lot of very disappointed people. Just a thought.

    January 23, 2012

  • Bob O`Bob

    Somebody ought to reset the event, though, or else more people could just sign up.

    January 23, 2012

  • Bob O`Bob

    I'm with you, Roy.
    Overcrowding wouldn't work, as I believe the limit is something the fire marshal would insist upon

    January 23, 2012

  • Roy Feldman

    If the limit is really 34 for this class, it looks like a few other selfless souls will have to do likewise. Otherwise, I suggest that you come prepared to camp outside of Hacker Dojo the night before. ;-)

  • Roy Feldman

    Albeit reluctantly, I have taken one for the team. *ouch* Even though I registered early and have done all of the necessary preparation on my laptop, I have changed my RSVP to no. I only hope that karma puts me at the top of the list the next time this class is given. ;-)

    January 23, 2012

  • Anjan Kundu

    Is the start time changed to 1:30 PM?

    January 11, 2012

  • Srikkanth

    Adding to John's question, Will there be any kind of hands-on session as part of the presentations ??

    January 11, 2012

  • John Houghton

    Hi Folks - Technical sessions sound fun, but what are we going to be covering? -Thanks!
