Android for Java Developers

Presented by Carl Harroch.

This is the first event in a series of events we are running in collaboration with ( on Android for Java Programmers.

Are you a Java programmer interested in learning about mobile apps? Do you want to broaden your programming horizons by being able to program on different devices? Are you looking to create the next Angry Birds but don't know where to start?

This talk aims to give you enough knowledge to get you through the initial learning curve and give you enough knowledge to allow to explore Android on your own.

We'll talk about the basic structures of the language, how you use it, what you can use from your existing Java knowledge and what the benefits of becoming a Londroider might be.

Who Should Attend:

Any java dev interested in getting dirty with Android. Junior is fine
