Upgrading Your Android App For Tablets Code Lab

A session at SXSW Interactive 2012

Saturday 10th March, 2012

3:00pm to 6:00pm (CST)

Come participate in these free, interactive programming classes. Roll up your sleeves and get waist-deep in code. Whether you’re learning a new platform or are a seasoned hacker, these hands-on sessions will help you apply your knowledge.

This guided lab will take you through the process of upgrading an existing Android application designed for phones into a hybrid phone+tablet application. You'll learn about designing layouts for multiple screen densities, using Fragments, implementing an Action Bar, and using the Android Support Package to maintain backwards compatibility with older phones. Attendees should have at least a basic familiarity with the Android SDK. This is a free code lab and available on a first come first serve basis due to limited space.
