Android Tour plus Hands-on Session

2-hour Android Hands-on Learning Session where you can get a tour of the Android platform, ask questions and hack on Android projects.

So you want to be an Android developer...

If you are interested in meeting other people learning to build Android applications, building a project or you just want a quick tour of what it takes to be an Android app developer, come check out this session. There are two sections for this meetup.

For people totally new to Android development, we will be providing a high-level tour of Android development concepts and answer any questions you may have along the way.

For those of you that have been here beforea professional Android developer will discuss the process of building typical Android apps and provide a practical introduction to key topics through a collaborative development session.

For those of you already familiar with high level Android concepts, we will also have a separate corner where you can work on your own Android tutorials or projects and ask any questions you might have.

    I thought I posted this comment yesterday, but it's not here... Anyway, this Meetup keeps getting better. And more popular judging by turnout. It's amazing how Tim and Nathan know their stuff, and they have a real desire to teach.

      About the slides, the URL to the JDK points to version 7 of Java, but I thought that version is still not supported by Android. Has this changed? I've tried compiling with JDK7 in Eclipse and IntelliJ to no avail...

      Officially, JDK 7 "isn't supported" for Android but JDK 7 should work fine with Android anyway and has for many students. If that doesn't work, try installing JDK 6 as well and let us know if that fixes the issue.

    Here's a question I've wondered about. What if you want to build an app that would be "better" if it used a certain Permission, but you don't want to make it mandatory. Do you need to build two versions of the app, to accommodate those devices that don't have the resource which requires Permission, or for those users who simply don't want to have the app use that feature?

    May 27, 2013

    • Yolanda D.

      Thanks, Nathan. So for optional app functions, the <uses-feature> would replace <permission> in the Manifest.

      May 28, 2013

    • Nathan E.

      That's right, uses-feature is the optional way to indicate an app can use a feature but doesn't require it.
