Android Development Workshop
The Maslow Initiative foundation in collaboration with #HashInclude, the computer programming society of Cluster Innovation Centre, University of Delhi, organised an introductory workshop on Android application development on September 23, 2017 at the Cluster Innovation Centre, University of Delhi. The Android app ecosystem today is rich and diverse and android applications have transformative power as portals to knowledge. The workshop was open to anyone interested to learn Android application development. Curiosity and the willingness were the only prerequisite for joining the workshop. After a session in the basics of programming, students were familiarized with the initials of android development. Starting right from the basic inquisitive queries and doubts about Android development, students were provided answers to all the what, how, if and why of android development. The workshop culminated with the student making a small android application of their own and tested in their own android cell phones. The gain in confidence and the ecstatic smile on the faces of the participants after developing their own Android applications was a certificate of the success of this workshop.
Overwhelming responses, as mentioned below, made us felt proud on our deed;
“I wanted to create applications in Android, but I never knew where to start. As a beginner, I loved the workshop. I would love to visit such workshops again in the future.”
