So it took me 2 hours (downloads on 2mbps included) to create an Android app in eclipse.
Wonder is that something I should be proud of giving I’ve been in software for nearly 15 years now…. 2 hours for a hello world…
Listening to .net rocks and Xamarin podcast got me thinking, I really should see what’s involved in creating an Android app, after all I’m a registered Microsoft and Apple developer, I can create Wp7 apps in my sleep, I’ve even flirted with iOS, why not give Google and Android a shot.
I was going to install MonoDroid for VS2010, but hey i’m doing a hello world, no need for all this cross platformability. I’ve been doing a fair bit of java lately and eclipse doesn’t frighten me anymore so I just downloaded and installed the tools, and created the above app.. baby steps..
Any downsides? yes,, Now I wanna buy a Android tablet .
