Appsterdam Guru Sessions are informal, very hands-on workshops to share a technology or a technique between App Makers. Explanation from your peers, open discussion and practical experience are key to these sessions.

Chris van Aart from 2CoolMonkeys will introduce you to Open Data for Android. By the end of the session, you'll have a grasp of the how to incorporate open data sets into a simple Android app. Best of all, we'll provide the pizza and beer!


12:30: Doors Open

12:30-13:00: Welcome Lunch

13:00-17:00: Using Open Data for Android and hands-on exercises!

17:00-18:30: Pizza and Beer

This session is targeted at developers who would like to learn how to incorporate open data into their Android app. Some Android experience is helpful, but we'll start small and give support if you are still an Android beginner.


Install Android Studio, bring an Android device and an USB cable. You'll also want to understand what a Singleton is. If you are new to Android, we recommend at least running through an Android Development Tutorial and check out some samples before the session.


Chris van Aart has been developing apps for IOS and Android platforms since 2008. He works as app producer at 2Coolmonkeys working on open data apps for the government, universities and private companies. Chris likes to spend as much time as possible with his girls, train Karate, drink wine and travel around the world.

Matt Feigal will support as Assistant Guru for anyone getting stuck. Matt's a dabbler in many languages, loves Guru Sessions, and wrote the silly open data app WCFinder.
