Event Details

Do you have a great idea in mind for a mobile app, but don't have the first clue about Android and making mobile apps then this event is for you!

If you always wanted to become a mobile app developer but got stuck at step 1, you tried online courses and tutorials but need someone to hand hold in the first few steps ... this event is for you !

This is a one day workshop that will get you from zero to "I know mobile app development" ... You might not become a master, that will take time !

We will start with basics, talk about fundamentals and dive straight into hands on development. This is not a talk-a-thon, this is about getting your hands dirty and going back home with your own app.

You will have to bring your own laptop, we will send out download links for everything you need to be prepared in advance.

Do try to bring an Android device along if you have one, you can get to deploy your first app !

Each of the sessions will be interspersed with hands on examples for you to follow along on your own machine
