I just got my Droid X on Thursday and that was my first experience with Android. I love my phone and this OS. I find it intuitive and easy.
So with that said......
I have to thank or blame this forum for giving me the link to Android Developer website. It's all your fault!
Ok I am a tinkerer and have to take things apart and figure know how things work. It's been a good decade since I laid down any code (in C) and figured since this Android OS is open source with a pretty cool set of development apps and kits available, I figured why not mess around and see how much trouble I can get into.
So I downloaded the SDK and and the Java support and a set of Google tools and followed some examples on the Android Developer website.
The language is fairly foreign to me but the idea of containers and structures is not. So I have some idea of what I was doing when I wrote my first "Hello Android" app. So needless to say I was disappointed when I didn't get a cool little Android Emulator window showing my "Hello Android" output. And I was all excited to jump over to XML and start on an app I could use for my business. Arrrrgh I thought as I shut down the computer at 2am, a good 4 hours past this old guys bedtime. (lol) Then to my surprise I look over to my Droid X that is connected via the USB and it is sitting there displaying....
I was jazzed as I crawled into bed and can't wait to see what I can do next.
Oh well, just thought I'd share.
