The first step is to go to the developer web site, and to set up the Android SDK. This involves:
- Downloading the SDK
- Configuring my machine by
- Placing the Android tools directory in my PATH
- Ensuring that my default JDK version is JDK 1.5 or higher
- Bringing up the Android SDK Manager and adding two packages:
- The documentation
- A particular platform
Since I don't know much about the platform at this point, I chose the latest platform, which is currently Android 2.0.1.
That's probably about all I'll manage to get done on this today.
