Java & Android

BC Convo - BC Quick Contact - BC Map

As a part of my minor in Computer Science at Berea College, I spent two semesters focusing on Java and a semester learning to write Android Apps. During the first few weeks of the Android Development course, we used App Inventor to gain a basic understanding of the Android layout and environemt as well to assist in tutoring the lower level Android class. For the rest of the semester I worked with a team member to write Android apps natively in Eclipse using the ADT bundle. Our main project was the BC Convo App, for which I wrote a large portion of the code. Since I enjoyed the challenge of writing code and creating a unique product, I independently continued to work on and improve the BC Convo App, as well as creating a BC Quick Contact App after the semester was over. I hope to be able to continue to support and improve these apps over time. The code for two of my apps are available on Gitbhub, while the third should be up later in 2013. 


BC Convo

Currently the data is hard-coded into the app, but hopefully another app update can be pushed out soon with XML update capability.

BC Quick Contacts

The app also provides information about each department like hours, location, and extension. The layout changes slighltly depending on if the device supports calling or not.

BC Map

Some of this is due to time constraints from working in the other two apps, but is also due to having to update a portion of the Adobe Illustrator file that the map originally was from. Hopefully it can be released in the near future.
