Hands-on workshop on Android application development

Hands-on workshop on Android application development

Monday May 25, 2015, 17:00-21:00

International Hellenic University, Computer Labs A1 & A2

Scope: With the number of mobile devices already exceeding the world’s population, mobile application development is an exciting and technically demanding field with vast potential that results in multi-billion dollar global revenue. The Android OS, widely used in smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices, currently dominates the mobile app market share by more than 70%. As a result, Android app development expertise has become a crucial skill in the job market. In this workshop/seminar, we ask an established Android developer to guide us in a tutorial manner through Android mobile app development and provide his insight and expertise on the art and science of Android programming. The event, which is targeted at students and ICT professionals alike, includes comprehensive presentations as well as actual hands-on programming performed by the participants.

Attendance is free of charge to students, ICT and mobile Web professionals, the general public and all those who wish to learn more about Android apps development.

The number of available spaces in this workshop is limited, and thus prior free registration is required. After registration, you will be contacted via email to be notified of whether your participation in the seminar is confirmed.
