As the year of the horse sets in, 8Layer Technologies is already moving in great strides by offering Android Bootcamps to aspiring developers. Accordingly, it had successfully conducted the first one last January 20-30. Attended by 6 participants from Comnet Management Inc., the bootcamp was a jump-start for novice developers to know the basics of android programming.
The 10-day training started with a brief background about Android given by Mr. Nick delos Santos. It was followed by a more technical discussion and hand-on activities conducted by Mr. Melchor Abcede, 8Layer's Android/mobile programmer. Trainees listened eagerly and asked questions as Mr. Abcede went on to more technical topics such as the Android libraries, Eclipse, SQLite, JSON, and the like. They were also able to create simple applications like Student Management Application and a calculator.
To conclude, not only did the trainees gained knowledge and learn Android programming, but they've also had fun while learning. Big appreciation to Kimlawrence P. Cruz, Don M. Montecillo, Orbith G. Baco, Jessa M. Cahilig, Lanz Rowin J. Laqui, Joseph I. Argosino for being good students to Mr. Abcede.
