Mobile App Development

Mobile devices like phones and tablets have created countless new possibilities for skilled software developers. This workshop teaches students how to program mobile apps while building on the programming concepts learned in the prerequisite course. Students create a variety of games and applications for a tablet computer to see just how developers take advantage of these powerful new devices.

Students will learn:
  • User experience, interface design, and programming using Java
  • Math concepts like variables, number systems, and coordinate systems
