  • Android Scripting: A Java-less approach to building Apps

    by Juan Gomez

    This session will provide an introduction to Android and will illustrate how SL4A (Scripting Layer for Android) allows us to create Android apps using a variety of programming languages including: Python, Javascript, Perl, JRuby and Lua. We’ll demonstrate how to perform simple tasks like accessing the GPS location, taking a picture or sending a text message without writing a single line of Java code.

    Then we’ll delve deeper into Android’s APIs and learn how to create a full blown Android App using a combination of Javascript and Python, complete with packaging the app for distribution on the Android Market. To finalize we’ll examine some advanced Python libraries that have been ported to Android like Pygame and Twisted, opening the door to more complex apps and games.
