Build Your First Android Phone Application Using Mono Android

If you're just getting started creating applications for Android phones, you're probably confused as to the tools you should use, and the language to develop in. If you're a Microsoft-focused developer, the thought of using Eclipse and Java may be a bit overwhelming. You can use a language you know (C#) along with a development tool you know (Visual Studio 2010), if you take advantage of Novell's Mono Android platform. In this presentation, you'll get a quick overview of developing for the Android phone using C#, Visual Studio 2010, and Mono Android. The end result of the session will be a simple Hello, World! application, but you'll at least know where to go for more information.
