                     Two-Part Workshop
                            Bring Your Own Laptop “BYOL”

                This Workshop is a Two-Part Series:
       Thursday night, May 6th, 2010, 6:00 P.M. –to– 9:00 P.M.
      Thursday night, May, 13th, 2010, 6:00 P.M. –to– 9:00 P.M.
  Reservations end at 6:15 P.M. Reservations can only be made if you attend both sessions.

   And ideally, students should start on the Eclipse/ADT plugin/SDK(s) downloading and installation
   process long before even coming to the first class (because if you get stuck, as you probably
   will, you will be that much more prepared and get the most out of this class if you can breeze
   through the first part easily): http://developer.android.com/sdk/installing.html

  We’ll go over setting up (and trouble-            We’ll give you a very basic 40,000 feet
  shooting installation issues for) your            overview of Android development (if we
  own development environment,                      didn’t have time to do it during the first
  running a ‘Hello World’ Android                   class), and we’ll guide you through creat-
  program, and show you how to use                  ing your own application from scratch,
  some of the Android debugging tools.              with a simple layout, a very simple form,
                                                    a button, and some kind limited
                                                    interactive functionality.

  Our purpose is to help beginning Android developers learn how to get started in
           developing an application for the Android Mobile platform.
