Hi guys - I'll keep this brief.
I have a standard CPSC background, know java quite well, but have been working exclusively with php/mysql/python professionally. A client has approached me for an android specific app that will do the following:
Signup directly through the app (validate with my server)
login through the app (same)
User Profile Screen
Send GPS information to a server
That is phase 1 of this project to get it off the ground. The client is on a very limited budget and I'm wondering how cheaply this can be accomplished. I am a complete Android SDK newbie. How many man hours can I expect a simple project like this to take? I'm going to assume an overhead of at least 4-6 hours just to familiarize myself with a few tutorials.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Once I learn more about the platform I'd be happy to assist newbies myself. Thanks in advance.
