Have a great app idea? Want to to learn how to build it?

Women Who Code DC is holding an introductory workshop for building mobile applications on Android and iOS. The goal is to build a basic weather application using native development tools and integrate with a public API. We'll even provide food and refreshments so you don't go hungry!

Attendees do not need to have any mobile experience, but should be comfortable with general developer tools, such as an IDE orworking from the command line. Familiarity with a programming language and concepts is preferred. If you already have some mobile experience, feel free to join us at 6:30 for the intermediate course.
