Hello Google App Inventor

Within minutes of firing up Google’s App Inventor, a totally
programming newbie (like me) can create a simple app for their Android phone. One of my apps – a simple sight word app – was featured in the Google research blog.

This session will provide an introduction to Google’s App Inventor
and those with an Android phone will hopefully be able to leave with a
program or two of their own.

App Inventor is a blocks-based programming platform meant to help new
programmers learn the basics of programming, but it also has a fair amount of
complex and somewhat deep functionality.

For more complicated programming questions, I will defer to the App
Inventor forums (and people who know more about me), but I can certainly get you started.
