What to expect when you're expecting to write an Android app 
Are you thinking about starting on the journey to writing an Android app, but don't know where to get started? I'm here to help! The Android ecosystem is large and scary, but with a few tips you should be able to navigate your first steps. 

In this talk I'll go over beginner resources for learning Android, some initial considerations you should make about your app, what tools you should get for the job, and some rookie mistakes you should avoid.
