This presentation is about getting all the tools you need to have a development station for Android Parts of this will be in a slideshow format, switching to interactive from time to time. It will cover some of the hardware requirements, as well as the main steps to get it installed: Java, Eclipse and Eclipse Plug-In for Android. Then, it will cover the creation of your virtual Android machine as well as getting the tools for it. A sample program will be loaded, compiled and executed, if time allows.
