Android Application Development for Teachers
Registration for this seminar requires approval.
You will be sent a confirming email from the registrar.
This five day course introduces developing applications for Android devices. All the required software is free, including the Android emulator. It is not necessary to own an Android device, though the applications developed in the course can be deployed to one. After preliminaries with Google Docs and Google Maps, we take up Android layout and input widgets, both in XML and programmatically; menus and dialogs; gesture detection; graphics and the Android drawing API; database access with SQLite and file IO; location-based services geo-location; and device dependency issues. Teachers will be provided with lecture and lab materials to use in an introductory class for Android Application Development.
Prerequisite: Familiarity with Java and Eclipse or willingness to learn them quickly is assumed.
