Homework Instructions:

Setting Up

First, let's set up your Android Studio Environment and make sure you have your emulator working so we can run our apps. Follow along with Lecture 1's setup demo and if you have any issues see the Setting up Android Studio section of the textbook. If you are experiencing difficulty setting up Android Studio contact us on Slack or in office hours and we will help sort it out!
We will now need to import the starter code zip file which you can see in the tutorial on this page: Importing, Exporting, & Submitting Your Project​

Required Tasks

In the starter code, there will be a series of TODO's spread amongst the project that you must complete. This is the only time we will be using starter code in homework since in future assignments we want you to experience making a project from scratch. This week we will use starter code to make things easier since everything is still new, so the emphasis this week is to get familiar with the environment! Peek around at the different files and explore and experiment!
To see all of the TODO's (TODO 0 to TODO 7) click on the "TODO" tab at the bottom near the terminal and Logcat:

Submission

After completing all of the TODOs you will need to export your project as a zip file and upload it to CMS which you can see in the tutorial on this page: Importing, Exporting, & Submitting Your Project​
If you have any trouble at all, do not hesitate to reach out to the course staff, we are all happy to help or just talk! Best of luck!
