Georgia Institute of Technology Mastering Android Development

GIT MAD is a College of Computing organization that strives to teach and encourage the development of Android applications. Enabling members to either work in a group to develop their own application or learning where to start in Android development.

This year, we're going to be starting up a Beginner session running alongside of Advanced sessions.
The Beginner session is good for those who are starting to learn how to write Android apps and also those who want more practice in it.
In Advanced sessions, we dive into app programming immediately, so those who have previous Android experience are welcome to join this instead.


Meetings are held on Mondays in Klaus 1447 from 6:30pm-8pm.
