I finally got all the resources I needed to begin developing apps downloaded and installed on my computers, so now it is time for me to get my hands dirty and start learning.
In the second workshop we got about creating our own first applications. As most programmers know the very first program in any new language is usually a “Hello World” program, as most instructors uses it to demonstrate the basic features. We learned about different app layout styles and how to use and manipulate them. Our instructor gave us some sample code which we implemented and viewed the results. After creating our first app, I began to analyze the code to see what each line does to see how it works and all comes together. I understood a couple of things and began editing the code and trying new things.
Through the videos I learned some extra things like how to edit the text from the basic “Hello world”, changing the text color, the text background color as well as the app’s background color.
Stay tuned for more posts as I expand my skills
