Intro to Android for the iPhone Developer (or anyone else) Mike Wolfson


Are you thinking about porting an iOS app to Android? It is not as simple as it might seem, because the two platforms are very different. This presentation will highlight the most important differences, and provide practical guidance on how to overcome them the easiest way. We will look into some of the most important design and UI paradigms, so your Android app functions well, and “fits” in the Android ecosystem. It’s the perfect presentation for anyone to gain good knowledge about the two most prominent mobile platforms – iOS & Android.

Developing Android Applications (for the Java Developer) Mike Wolfson


Android is a Mobile OS that provides a robust set of tools to allow developers to quickly and easily develop applications to be run on the platform. This talk will show some simple steps for getting started developing applications for Android. This talk will be focused on Java developers, as the tools used to develop will be very familiar to anyone currently developing Java software (especially if using the Eclipse IDE).

Speaker Bio:  Mike is a passionate mobile designer/developer working out of Phoenix, AZ.  He has been working in the software field for over 15 years, and with Android since it’s introduction. Currently, he develops Android applications for Choice Hotels International. He has a few successful apps in the Market, and is an active contributor to the tech community, including organizing the local GTUG.

Mike is a Denver native, who graduated from George Washington High School, and Colorado State University.

Mike has spoken about Android and mobile development at a variety of national conferences and user groups. When he is not geeking out about phones, he enjoys the outdoors (snowboarding, hiking, scuba diving), collecting PEZ dispensers, and chasing his young (but quick) daughter.
