Android Jump Start

If you are new to Android or even been developing with Android for a while it can be hard to navigate around all that Android can offer. This talk will go over setting up your project in ant, understanding the visual layout utilizing XML for layouts, menus and strings, features such as tabs, browsers, local storage, c2dm (for notifications and synchronization), utilizing http / web services and debugging your code.

This talk will have several examples and we will build an example application during this talk leveraging the features and functionality above. If there is internet access, this example application will be published to the Android Market.
