Android Class: Intents, Intent Filters, Services, Broadcast Receivers, etc.

Android Programming Classes at the Alameda Public Library

This week, we'll be going over Intents and Intent Filters, as they are used to call Activities, Services, and Broadcast Receivers (last week, I discovered I gave out some wrong information during the Q&A, and I'd like a chance to correct myself).

We'll be using the open source SMS Popup application as our example:

After that, we'll do just like last week, but instead of studying an Activity's lifecycle with some breakpoints, we'll be placing breakpoints inside an audio player Service (one of which will be binded to an Activity and another which won't be).

Beginners are welcome. Even if you didn't understand a word of what I just said, you should still come. We can help you get started installing the Android SDK (even if you haven't already started doing so). That being said, here are some pretty good installation instructions (take note that it may easily take you three or four hours to download everything and go through the installation process, so you may want to get started even before you come to class).

Also note, that if you're a Windows 7 user, but are still having troubles installing stuff. You should especially come to this class/meetup, if you want to get yourself unstuck. Windows 7 is a little bit trickier than other Operating Systems, but we've been able to troubleshoot most Windows 7 installations problems. 

(note the location change: we're back on the ground floor in the large conference room of the library)
