If you're attending the conference to start your Android journey, this talk is for you. I'll introduce you to the tools and the basic programming concepts. I'll create some simple Android apps and run them on real phones.
This isn't a hands-on session. But if you work on some examples during the conference, I'll be available to help you get past any hurdles that you encounter.
Prerequisite: Reading knowledge of an object-oriented programming language such as Java.
