Wanting to learn how to write apps for the Android platform and not finding a meetup group, I decided to form this group. My 25 years software development experience has taught me that a small team of focused people from diverse backgrounds with a common aim always make further progress than an individual. You should join us, if you have good PC and internet literacy, a passion for software development, little or no experience of Android, and a windows laptop. A computer science degree is not a requirement to join. This meetup group doesn't prepare you to step straight into an Android developer role. It's more about giving a basic understanding and confidence to get started developing with Android and to have better conversations with Android developers. If you have missed previous sessions, please feel free to come along and start working through the exercises from earlier meet ups at your own pace and ask for help from more experience group members.
