ENEA® ANDROID TRAINING PACKAGE
Since the announcement of the Android Mobile technology platform
in November 2007 there has been a growing interest for this Linux
based mobile platform. Many companies are turning to Android as a
base for new mobile products. Android combines a lot of well known
open source libraries with a complete application environment
based around its Dalvik virtual machine. This means the solutions in
Android range from the familiar to the new and innovative.
Looking Into The Platform

Courses and Workshops
Our courses are made up of different training modules described on the next page. The modules can be combined
into courses suitable for different developers as suggested on this page.
The courses are offered in two "flavors":
• Traditional form with classroom training where each track is taught as consecutive full day trainings
• Program form, where each module in the course is executed as shorter trainings at regular intervals. The
labs are given as home assignments between each training occasion. The trainer will be available via
phone and on-line support to help with the labs between sessions.
We also offer the modules as separate half day workshops consisting of 2-3 hrs of training and 1-2 hrs of lab work.
