Chicago Android (Uki D. Lucas) and Mobile Monday Chicago are proud to present an intensive one-day "Android 201" workshop with nationally-known Android instructor, Mark Murphy. 

This course builds on the series of "Android 101" workshops offered by Chicago Android in order to help students advance to the next level of competency with the platform.

As a prerequisite, all students SHOULD have successfully completed at least couple of FREE classes offered by SMS sending and receiving, barcode scanner, Database access, WebKit, GPS, etc. Due to the high demand for this course, no exceptions can be made. 

Uki ( will announce location of Monday evening get-togethers to fulfill the prerequisites.

This course is expected to cover the following modules (details may change):

9:00-10:15 Threads lecture & hands-on

Registration is limited to just 30 participants in order to offer this rare "hands on" course with Mr. Murphy. As mentioned, due to the intense nature of this workshop, a minimal level of experience is required. Students completely new to Android cannot be accommodated for this workshop. (Look for additional entry level workshops coming soon!)
