In this two-hour workshop, attendees will learn the basics of Android development. Using Java and Android Studio, participants will build a basic, native “to-do” app for Android phones. No prior experience with programming required.

This will be a hands-on workshop, so please bring a laptop (any operating system should be fine.) If you have an Android phone with USB cable, you can use it for the workshop, but an Android phone is NOT required.

In order to save some time at the workshop, it is recommended that you download Android Studio beforehand here: Don’t worry about setting it up - we will walk through the process.

About the speakers:

Sam Bobra is on the Growth Engineering team at VSCO and was previously on the Android team. She has a B.S. in Computer Science from Cornell University, and has been developing for Android for 3 years.

Caren Chang is a full-time Android engineer at VSCO, but also teaches AP Computer Science on Saturdays, so she works with Java a ton! She has taught at a few Android workshops before, and loves helping people build an app that they can be proud of at the end of the night.
