About this event

DOOR PRIZES! We’ll be giving away some Google goodies. Examples of past door prizes have included a Google Home Mini and Google Play credit.

Have you always wanted to create an app, but didn’t know where to start or thought it would be too hard? This presentation will give you the tools to start building basic apps right away. While some experience in programming would be useful, it isn’t required. To actively participate and get the most out of the presentation, you will want to bring a laptop with Android Studio preloaded (link at bottom).

This presentation will be structured as a guided code lab. After a quick introduction we’ll start building a basic app with a holiday theme. Specific topics will include:
-Using the designer that is built into Android Studio for creating user interfaces. We’ll touch on ConstraintLayout, TextViews, and buttons.
-Connecting the user interface to Java code.
-Switching between screens (Activities).
-A Q&A will follow the presentation.
