Abstract

We would like to share our experience learning the ropes of Android development and putting it to use to develop an engaging memory game. We hope the talk will inspire others getting started with Android development.

Outline

We are a group of three 2nd year CS students. In this talk we will share our experience of how we got started with Android development starting from our very limited programming knowledge. We will talk about the approach we used to learn the basics of Android development. The issues we faced and the resources we used to get over those. It was essential to build a non-trivial App to cement our learning. We will talk about how we came up with the idea for the game, how we went about flushing it out. The whole experience was very satisfying and has given us the confidence to take up bigger projects.
We hope our talk will inspire others to the take the first step. It will also help people who are creating tutorials and write ups to help people getting started with Android Development. We also hope to connect with experienced Android developers and get feedback on how we can get better!
