BCS Appathon - 13th June 2015

Part of the Guinness World Record attempt for the largest number of people learning to write Android smartphone applications at the same time! Using a mixture of talk, activities, and hands-on coding we will help you build some simple interactive applications that you run and install on your own Android phones or tablets. You will leave the day with apps you’ve built, and the software installed on your own laptop to play around with it once you get home.
