Coffee time!

I’m a coffee addicted, seriously.

Usually I have coffee three times a day, without sugar and milk, just hot, black coffee and I’m happy.

One of the projects of the Android Basics was to build an app to order coffee and you can imagine my eyes when I start coding! (Having a cup of coffee of course!)

Anyway the app is really simple; it works like a coffee machine: you can select the number of coffee you want, then you can order them by clicking the “order button”.

After that I’ll come to you with your coffee and a big smile on my face so wait for me! (For sure…)

Here is the screenshot of the app:

Hope you like it and if you want to have the code just ask me and I’ll send you!

P.S. I know there is a grammar mistake in my app: in the “Coffe Time” title an “e” is missing but don’t worry; I’ll fix it.

First App: Magic Birthday

Here it is my first app in XML: it is a birthday card, this is the really first project of the Android Basics course; every student made one and it’s amazing to see how many different ideas there are on the discussion forum of the course!

My idea was create a birthday card for a friend of mine who loves Harry Potter and I wanted to create something just for her.

I think the thing I enjoy the most after learning android development is to share my ideas and see new ones from all over the world so I can always improve and try to create something new with other people, it’s really awesome!

How I made this very simple card?

Google developer challenge scholarship: Android basics

Yes! Yes! Yes!

I’ve been accepted into the Google developer challenge scholarship and I started my course: Android basics!

This is a 3 months course by Udacity of android development, after that the 2000 best students will get into a nanodegree program  on the udacity platform.

I was so excited when I saw the e-mail from udacity in my mail box and now I’m studying how to create apps in XML using Android Studio and I already made my first app!

The lessons are online and they consist in videos and exercises that students can do in 3 months, so basically I can decide when to study watching the videos and coding.

You’ll ask “how can you study for this course if you are a backpacker in Australia at the moment?”

Well now after work I usually dedicate one hour per day and I can do everything, sometimes I have more time to study, for example when I have a day off, but this is good for me ’cause I can focus better if I know that I don’t have time to be inattentive!

Studying while travelling is a perfect combination and I’m really enjoying it!
