Details

This is a two hour hands-on introductory workshop where you will have an opportunity to develop a simple Android chat app called DROIDTALK using Kotlin! Kotlin was announced earlier this year at Google I/O to be officially supported by Android, an exciting development in the Android space. In the workshop you will learn how to set up a brand new Android project, create a simple UI, communicate with backend services using Kotlin and see the app in action using an emulator or on a real device.

Technical Requirements: Base knowledge of at least one programming language, such as Java

Prerequisites:

Follow setup instructions at https://github.com/jleu1656/wwc-droidtalk-kotlin-skeleton before the workshop

To bring on the night:

• Laptop + charger

• An Android phone if you have one. We’re targeting Android API 23 (Marshmallow) and above. No worries if you don’t have one, we can just use the emulator.

• Mini USB cable if you are bringing your own Android phone
