Access Notes

We're on the 11th floor, come on up. Non-members park bikes outside the building. Paid car parking is connected to the building, and a SmartPark is two blocks away near Target. Located on SW 10th and Washington, between Target and Powell's, on the big block of food carts. We're on the Streetcar line, a block from the Red and Blue MAX lines, and a 5-minute walk from the Green, Yellow, Orange lines.



In this episode of Code N Splode, Sarah Sharp will lead an exploration of an Android App called Garden Weather Alert. We'll cover some of the basics of Android App structure: intents, activities, and services. Sarah will also show the app development workflow in the Eclipse Android SDK, and how to debug apps. If time permits, we'll talk about storage and background services.

The git repo for the app is here:


The android app source code is under the src/android-get-temp/ directory. Feel free to browse the source code history to see how Sarah has added functionality over time.
