· Java Zone

The Java Zone is brought to you in partnership with ZeroTurnaround. Check out this 8-step guide to see how you can increase your productivity by skipping slow application redeploys and by implementing application profiling, as you code!

Last week I had the pleasure of delivering a free half-day introduction to Android development at our Haifa branch. The day focused on both native application development on Android (with Eclipse and ADT) and C# development with Xamarin. We developed a simple “todo list” application that displays pending tasks, tracks the user location, and stores tasks in persistent storage on the device.

Here are some useful links I promised to post during the session, which you might find useful when replicating this application’s functionality:

Thanks everyone for coming, and I’m looking forward to seeing you at future events. This is also a good opportunity to mention that we have just launched the next Sela Developer Practice website, with updated dates: June 29 – July 3, 2014. Don’t miss the large number of new talks and workshops that we’ll be offering this time, including a full-day workshop on Xamarin development by Ofir Makmal!
