n60029916022_4828If you are a Java developer and want to learn how to build a Google Android Application, this is your lucky day – but only if you are based in Lahore and/or can make it to LUMS on January 17 from 6 pm – 8 pm. Our friend Badar Khushnood of Google Pakistan has organised a “Building an Android Application 101” workshop.

Why the short notice? Well Omar Shakil, a Google Software Engineer, is in Lahore from Silicon Valley and Badar didn’t want to miss out on the opportunity of having him share his knowledge and experience in Android development with the developers’ community in Pakistan.

P@SHA is of course supporting the event – it is a natural for P@SHA. The session is meant to be a practical introduction to building Android applications using the SDK and developer tools. Omer Shakil will walk through the building of a non-trivial application and will use it as the basis for discussing the various facets of the Android application framework. Click here for details regarding the event.

For those of you who can’t be at the event, we will try and arrange to put the event tape up on YouTube. In the meantime here is a peep into the Android Application Framework:

The Android Software Development Kit can be downloaded here.

    @Talha, I am afraid they won’t be able to change the date of the event. Why don’t you take an earlier flight?

    @Talha you just got lucky. Badar Khushnood of Google just called me to say that they have decided to reschedule the event. It will now be held at LUMS from 6 pm – 8 pm on January 17 and NOT January 16. 🙂
