Getting started with Android

It's hard to find a really appropriate example on which to base Jade, but I today managed to write a tiny program that draws one of my backgrounds.

Is it REALLY eight months?

It's not that I haven't done anything since last July. For a month or so, I built scenes for the Junk voyage. But then... I discovered Android, in the form of a Motorola Xoom, and I'm looking seriously at mounting the adventure on an Android base.

A development system and three books downstream, I still haven't written a line of code. Actually, although Android coding is mostly in Java, there's very little of the existing code that I'll be able to use.
