Cleaner APIs, Cleaner UIs with Visage Android

The San Francisco Android User Group
Wed, 28 Sep 2011, 01:30 - 03:30 (Add to calendar) GMT
(Exact location not available) , San Francisco, US

Steve Chin is back! First he showed us how to leverage our Flash/Flex skills on Android, now he is going to teach us how to write cleaner UIs using an Android domain specific language called Visage.

Visage is the successor to the JavaFX Script Language, a DSL for writing UIs. It excels at rapid application design and can be used on any platform that supports Java.

In this session you will learn how to supercharge your Android development by using Visage to create declarative UIs. Visage Android exposes the full set of Android APIs, allows you to mix Java and Visage code in the same application, and generates code that deploys to and runs on Android mobile devices.

As always, food/drinks/giveaways will be provided by our sponsors.

Note that this event will take place at Square (110 5th St @ Mission).
