James Harmon

Android Trainer and Consultant

Mobile devices are now outselling PCs and Android mobile devices are leading the way. Learn how to develop for this popular and important platform. This session will provide the information you need to configure the Android development platform and begin writing native applications.

No Android experience necessary. If you already know Java and Eclipse that would be helpful but, if not, you'll still get a good understanding of the development process for Android (and you can learn Java later if you want to continue building Android apps).

This presentation will cover the following topics:

  • Android IDE and SDK
  • Creating an App
  • Testing and Deploying an App
