This course is an introduction to coding and programming through a simple project: creating a mobile app that runs natively on Android and iOS smartphones.


This course is open: all the lecture materials are free and can be reused, under a Creative Commons licence.

Tutorials available in web pages, pdf, slides, and ebooks!

The course was originally made of videos and Word documents. They are now written with asciidoc, a format which makes it easy to convert these tutorials in slides, web pages, and pdf documents. Basically, sharing and collaborating online becomes easier, without being blocked by a proprietary file format.
