Mobile app development is one of the biggest new industries of the last decade. If you are developing an Android app for the first time, the first option you will likely find is “Android Studio,” a free integrated-developer-environment (IDE) provided directly by the Android team at Google, using the Java programming language. It’s a good starting point for experienced programmers to build an Android app from scratch.
We will present a brief overview of the “Android Studio” environment, and provide a step-by-step example to make an app with multiple ‘activities’ and using built-in ‘sensors.’ A familiarity with the Java programming language is recommended to get the most out of the seminar. Participants who want to program during the workshop are recommended to install “Android Studio” in advance and to bring their own laptops to use during the presentation.
