It is all about Android this Monday, Feb 21 @ 6:15pm. We will kick off with an introduction by Ann Marie Manzitti to Killer Android, the local Android development group. We’ll then dive into an overview of Android and how you can build a basic app for promoting your business without programming knowledge, for free… And then Brad McManus from local start-up Real Time Farms will introduce some advance concepts for Android developers to give everyone a broad understanding of what Android is all about.
Also, thanks to Windows Phone 7 for sponsoring this event. We’ll put some of the proceeds towards some free food for attendees of this event.
