The Ultimate Android Workshop

14th & 15th March, 2019

On the 14th and 15th of March, the Android division of the DSC conducted a workshop on the basic UI elements of Android, connecting them with Java code, connecting REST APIs and parsing JSON from them.

The workshop was held in AB2, CP Lab 3, from 4.30pm to 6.30pm on both days.

Day 1

Uma Subbiah of 3rd year CSE B introduced the DSC to the students and encouraged them to attend the various workshops and events that have been planned by the DSC.

Rajkumar S of 2nd year CSE F discussed the basic UI elements of Android, connecting them with Java code. Students implemented these on their phones, using Android Studio.

Day 2

Rajkumar taught the students how to connect REST APIs and parse JSON from them. Students from all branches were excited to make their own apps and learn how to fix bugs. At the end of the workshop, Rajkumar gave the students the master copy of the code for the app, a few resources where they can further learn Android and his contact, in case they need any help in the future.

We are grateful to our University for their support in providing the labs and equipment required.
