The objective of this book is to give an insight into Android programming based on practical App projects. The Apps have different core focuses and hence one can extend and develop them further based on his/her Android knowledge. Thanks to active programming, the users will be quickly acquainted with the work environment and will learn how to solve problems in Android step-by-step. Android Studio, which is a completely new development environment, will be used for programming.
Designed for a broad spectrum of people with technically diverse backgrounds, this book covers the most recent developments in Web 2.0 programming topics and applications, including up-to-date material on cloud computing, Google AppEngine, Social Networks, Comet, HTML5, semantic technology, and a chapter on the future of the Web. This book prepares readers for more advanced technical topics in Web 2.0. The accompanying CD-ROM and companion website provide code samples from the book and appendices with an extensive set of links (over 1,000) for supplemental material and links for the Twitter and Facebook pages. (Please note, eBook version does not include CD-ROM).
Wi>Android Apps with App Inventor provides hands-on walkthroughs that cover every area of App Inventor development, including the Google and MIT versions of App Inventor. Kloss begins with the absolute basics of program structure, syntax, flow, and function, and then demonstrates simple ways to solve today’s most common mobile development problems. Along the way, you’ll build a dozen real Android apps, from games and geotrackers to navigation systems and news tickers. By the time you’re done, you’ll be comfortable implementing advanced apps and mashups integrating realtime multimedia data from all kinds of Web services with the communication and sensor-based features of your smartphone. Topics covered include Installing and configuring App Inventor Building modern, attractive mobile user interfaces Controlling Android media hardware, including the camera Saving data locally with TinyDB, or in the cloud with TinyWebDB Streamlining and automating phone, text, and email communications Tracking orientation, acceleration, and geoposition Integrating text-to-speech and speech-to-text in your apps Controlling other apps and Web services with ActivityStarter Building mobile mashups by exchanging data with Web APIs Testing your apps for diverse hardware with the Android Emulator Example apps, including multimedia center, online vocabulary trainer, finger painting, squash game, compass, geocacher, navigator, stock market ticker, and many more This book will empower you to explore, experiment, build your skills and confidence, and start writing professional-quality Android apps—for yourself, and for everyone else!

Integration von Gender und Diversity in MINT-Studiengängen
Author: Carmen Leicht-Scholten
Mit dem Projekt „IGaDtools4MINT“ wurde angestrebt, die Interdisziplinarität, die Anwendungsbezogenheit und die große Bedeutung der Informatik für Entwicklungen, von denen Menschen auf der ganzen Welt profitieren können, stärker in die Curricula zu integrieren, um die Wichtigkeit der Teilhabe an diesen Entwicklungen zu demonstrieren sowie die Attraktivität des Studienfachs für verschiedenste Studierende weiter zu steigern. Zudem soll durch gezielte Maßnahmenentwicklung der Anteil von Frauen und anderen bislang unterrepräsentierten Gruppen in der Informatik erhöht und die Studienabbruchquoten nachhaltig gesenkt werden. Langfristig soll dadurch eine Öffnung der Fachkultur Informatik erreicht werden.
