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

This is a one day workshop that will get you from zero to "I know mobile app development" ...

  • Enjoy 8-hour crash course in mobile app development.
  • Learn to build apps and sell them on Google Play without prior knowledge in programming.
  • Add on marketable skills to your CV and opportunities for side income.
  • View completed mobile app via smartphone at the end of the workshop.

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 !
