Extending Marketable Skills!

Baby steps.  I've already identified 3 or 4 resources now for coding my goal project.  A thanks to Paul Burton for showing off his code for using the android BT to connect to a L2CAP connection (wii hardware - think balance board).  The purpose, or goal of all of this, for me, is to learn to code and build OPEN SOURCE tools clinicians an use, and involve more CLINICIANS in the building process.   I'm learning.  And will blog about my learning, and share resources as much as I can.  Would love to find more, or involve more people.

This is going to be awesome.

3 weeks ago: Javascript (for posterity).  Then PAXScript (to modify EMR at the clinic where I work), and now I'm playing in Android!  By far the best learning resources I have found for all of these have been http://www.codeacademy.com and http://www.thenewboston.org.  Both supply learning tutorials for different programming tricks and have helped me learn exactly what an API is!  Very cool stuff.  Without further adieu, I present to you my bean counter! 

You can install this to your very own android phone by tapping here in your mobile browser. I wouldn't necessarily recommend it, but you can if you're curious.  I isn't harmful.  Will put an APK on your devices, run and install from there.

About my app:  I made a logo from some wrinkled paper, and old school project, and GIMP editor. I'm coding everything from the ground up using an application called Eclipse.  Immediately below is a short example of one of the manifest for my application called Bean Counter.   

At start up, there is a 5 second splash screen and a Hal9000 clip "Everything is going very well here."  So awesome.  After that it goes into a main app menu where you can select lots of options.  Right now there is only MainActivity (I'm working on thinking of a better name).  Selection takes you into a counter. counter++, counter--.  Simple right?  Sure it is.
