Creating More with Less

Building an Android application of any worth is no trivial task. From integrating with remote APIs to making sure that the UI and UX are set up properly takes a lot of time, and more so, a ton of code to do. In this session, learn how to stand on the shoulders of giants to create compelling applications with minimal code that will operate and look great on Android 2.x to the current version of Android.

You will be introduced to some open source libraries such as RoboGuice, ActionBarSherlock, GSON, HTTP Request, Maven and more. At the end of this session you should be able to download a template application and begin working on your next masterpiece.
