ANDROID ECLIPSE

The lecture is suitable for people with background in software development. It is highly recommended to come with your laptop already installed with the following (the installation takes time and you won’t have that time during the lecture):
1. Java Development Kit (avoid Java 7 and install JDK 6) – www.oracle.com
2. Eclipse Classic – www.eclipse.org
3. Android SDK – www.android.com
4. ADT (Android Development Tools for Eclipse) – www.android.com
You can find a post with a short video clip that explains these installations at http://bit.ly/SW0rZ9.
