No, I'm not entering the competition. I am learning Java at the moment and the only useful thing I've written in Java is the Best Value application I've already advertised on here. I will post the source code and xml's as soon as my own forum can support code properly (it barfs at less than and greater than signs).
If I had much more experience I might have considered it.
At this stage I will post Best Value. Next I am considering writing a bit of a tutorial on steps to writing a game.
My idea is to learn and share my knowledge as I gain it so others may see how I went about learning Dalvik Java programming.
I do have another idea for an application but I've already seen someone else has written it, so I may or may not do that one after all.
As for 'shame'.. it is a bit annoying at the different types of Java to know which one to program for: Android Java, J2ME, PC/Website applets, etc. It took me a long time to settle on Android as I have faith in it taking over. I still don't want to split my time making more than one version of an application, even if it seems really simple to convert the Dalvik to a Web Applet.

Google has launched the Android Developer Challenge, which will provide $10 million in awards -- no strings attached -- for great mobile apps built on the Android platform.
I think that further development is a suggestion.
Besides, who says beer isnt a way to further development? ;)

With 25000$ I could hire an appartment with 3 colleagues and live from Pizza and Beer for two years ^^
Of course coding day and night :)

I'm Shawn from Virginia, USA. I do web and desktop software design. I also do a lot of GFX, especially for my software. I occasionally like to draw up conceptual hardware designs for embedded applications, computers, etc.

Before android my main focus was on Multitouch Interfaces over at nuigroup.org.

Postby benny! » Wed Feb 13, 2008 9:03 pm

Hi,

my name is benny! I registered here already last year.
Unfortunately I couldnt seriously test Android so far -
that's why I just visited the forum rarely in the last weeks.

But now I have more time and like to start a little pro-
ject. For some freeware/non-commercial software you
can visit my blog. I used more Cpp instead of Java in
my last projects though - but in the end - the idea of OO
is everywhere the same (more or less) ;-)

So far - this forum seems to be a really cool place !!!
(thanks @plusminus).

Greetings,
benny!

Howdy,

Just wanted to introduce myself, I have been hacking around with android since it came out and thought it was about time to start contributing what I have learned to the community. I will probably mostly post tutorials on my blog, but I will try to help out a little here!

I started with Android to learn the mobile programming technique. I work in software and am rather comfortable with Java but more in back-end telecom kind of products I wanted to do something more customer oriented and more on the front end.

I found this site really useful. Thanks a lot everyone.

hi everyone.
my name is Maxim and I'm and Android addict.

My team is submitting a project to ADC and I would like to announce it here, but I need to have at least one post to post with links, so basically this is it. (of course, if it is off-topic, I will go there :))

I find Android platform really interesting and hope to continue working with it.
Since the market for Android software is going to only grow :)

I would like to thank everyone from forum staff for sharing their knowledge and maintaining this resource.
TY.
