Developing for Android Tutorial

· Read in about 1 min · (74 Words)

I gave a two hour tutorial on developing for Android at work today for our weekly tech talk. Similar in style to my coworker Aaron Ortbals’ tutorial on Ember.js, I showed how to build a client for GitHub’s Events API.

Topics included:

  1. Project setup
  2. Gradle dependencies
  3. API requests & JSON parsing
  4. Activities & fragments
  5. Lists, adapters, and custom item layouts

You can find the source code and the slides for the tutorial on GitHub.
