Over the years I have stumbled upon various Android projects where I needed a feature and wasn't able to implement it because I had no idea about Android development.

Downloading an SDK by hand and setting it up one time on a computer always seemed like a waste of time to me. I prefer writing a package once or writing config files ones and then can use them everywhere later. This put me off for quite a while.

I would like to use this Hackweek to make myself familiar with Android development.


  • Installing SDK/IDE
  • Learning development fundamentals
  • Follow official Udacity course (takes 60 hours?!)
  • Maybe write a first small app
  • Contribute to one of the Apps I like

I used to use a language learning system called Glossika which recently switched from shipping the audio files + PDF to forcing users to use an online tool (so you can only learn while you have an internet connection). Someone started an alternative: Natibo. Hopefully at the end of this I will be able to contribute there.

Addionally it would be interesting to write an App in Qt/QML and see how it compares.

Looking for hackers with the skills:
