*** THIS WORKSHOP HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED TO FEB 5 (it was previously scheduled for Nov 28).

Do you want to learn how to build mobile apps for Android? Young women ages 15+ are invited to learn how to use the Android SDK to build mobile apps for Android phones.

This workshop is for participants in the Technovation Challenge and is part of a series of workshops. Female students attending the University of Waterloo, Wilfred Laurier University, Conestoga College and University of Guelph are also welcome to register. In this workshop we will be looking at the basics of developing mobile Android apps using Java and the Android SDK. You will be introduced to the common components used in professional mobile applications while designing and building your own unique camera app.

To build our app we will be examining a wide range of app components, from simple buttons to complex lists and even animations. Participants will get to design their own layout to create a truly unique app. Using the Android SDK we’ll connect to our phone’s camera to take photos and videos which we can edit with stickers and share with our friends online!

Pre-requisites for the workshop:

  • Students should have a basic understanding of some programming language, preferably an object-oriented language. The language does not need to be Java. The focus of the workshop will be on the Android SDK, not Java.

  • Students need to bring their own laptop to the workshop.

  • Students should install Android Studio 3.2 or later on their laptop prior to the workshop. After installation, run Android Studio to complete the set up.

Food and water will be provided. Please indicate any dietary restrictions. Please do not send any nut-based snacks. We have participants with nut allergies.

Parking is available in nearby Uptown Waterloo lots. Parking is free for 2 hours and then free after 6:00 pm.

This workshop is presented in partnership with Shopify.
