April 2011 VIJUG Meeting – Android Development

After falling victim to the snow craze in February, we are now in a much better position to actually hold the meeting. Although still too cold in my opinion by the end of this month we will be hosting a VIJUG meeting about Android development. Android has seen tremendous growth in the last year and is by now the most widely used smartphone operating system world wide and set to move into the tablet space this year as well. And it is a lot of fun developing for it.. enough reason to want to learn more.

Vancouver Island Technology Park, Conference Center Room – 4464 Markham Street, Victoria, BC
Thursday, 28th April 2011, 18:00-20:00
Introduction to Android development presented by Manfred Moser from simpligility technologies

After introducing Android as framework and ecosystem to you in prior meetings, this time Manfred will dive into the code and give you a whirlwind tour through the Android SDK and a bunch of the available tools.

Manfred has been dabbling with Android since 2009 and working full time as Android application developer for over a year now. He has been presenting about Android in the past at various group meeting as well as the Android specific developer events AndroidTO and AnDevCon. Find out more about his activities on his company web site and blog.
