Android Manchester First Meetup @ the MadLab

On Monday 21st March we had our first Android Meet-Up, given the time we had, we did very well to attract 21 people!

The evening started with a very basic overview of Mobile Apps, History of Android, General architecture of an Android app, Components of an Android App and then a basic demo of an Android App, by Zain(@zain_ [link to Twitter])

Once the basics were covered, the attendees quickly delved into questions and answers.
