About this event

I'm excited to announce that it is Android Study Jam Season! Starting April 8th, 2021, and ending October 10th, 2021, we will be meeting together every other Thursday evening online to learn the essentials of the Kotlin programming language and the fundamentals of how to build Android apps in Kotlin. 

The first session is about ramping up on the Kotlin programming language, including syntax and basic language features. I will be introducing Kotlin Koans and some other resources to get started in Kotlin! You can try out Kotlin Koans at https://play.kotlinlang.org/koans/Introduction/.

These events are open to all audiences, although having a basic introduction to object-oriented programming and basic knowledge of GitHub will be helpful, however, it is not required. I will be sharing resources and challenges each week from the 'Prior Programming Experience Track'. Those who complete all 10 lessons from https://developer.android.com/courses/kotlin-fundamentals/course can be awarded a certificate upon submitting a screenshot of the completion at the end of the course (instructions will be provided). 

Everyone is welcome, this is a collaborative and supportive learning environment. Feel free to work at your own pace, or to jump in at any time. All events in this series will be offered virtual, although future events in this series may be streamed from an in-person venue for those who are interested in an in-person event starting in May.
