Hi CPT developers. Would you be interested in a developer study jam around android for beginners (March-April)? If so please comment on this post to let us know. It involves android course work, 7 consecutive meetups for the group to discuss/support each other, and it covers Udacity material on android. If there is enough interest in a dedicated study jam, GDG organizers will support the community and plan + host a study jam. Let us know ;)

Also please note: to get the most out of this event, you need to know your way around Java. You need to be comfortable with the syntax and do basic debugging.


This meetup is aimed at beginners, it will cover some of the basics of building an android app.

We are going to touch on the basics of Android, from idea to conception.

Things we will cover :

1. Prototyping your idea before coding 
2. Using prototyping tools 
3. Activities 
4. Fragments 
5. Integrating libraries 
6. Asynchronous networking in Android

By the end of the meetup you should feel confident to tackle new Android projects. We will post links of the slides and code used to work on after the event if you could not complete everything in the short time we have.
