Introduction to Programming Applications for Mobile Devices

This video was recorded at 8th International Conference on Mobile and Ubiquitous Multimedia. Mobile phones are increasingly capable devices. These devices are also increasingly friendly towards developers and it is now straightforward to write your own programs. The objective of the Tutorial is to provide hands on experience with creating applications for mobile devices. This will be achieved through an example of a location aware application for three mobile platforms: Google Android, Windows Mobile, and Apple iPhone platform. Participants will be guided through the development on the Android platform with detailed descriptions on how to achieve similar objectives using Windows Mobile and Apple iPhone. The format will be designed around attendees actively working through the example application on their own computers. Requirements: Basic knowledge of the Java programming language will be of benefit but we will aim to make the content accessible to everyone. For active participation, please bring a laptop and install a copy of the Android SDK. Here is the list of system requirements . The instructors will provide assistence with installing the Android SDK 12:30 to 13:00, prior to the tutorial session.
