Android Session 7 @ Mbarara University 2015

Hey Android developers! Hope you're great. My name is Felix Kiiza, a second year student at Mbarara University of Science and Technology pursuing a Bachelors degree in Information Technology. 

I am passionate about coding especially developing mobile applications. Therefore i am right to call myself a Developer.

Developers during the session

Personally i have learnt a lot from all the Android Sessions. It's compelling to be part of the Android Study Group here at campus for instance i have managed to come-up with a Camera App which is encouraging me to build other Apps.  

On Saturday 23rd  May 2015, we had our 7th weekly meetup in lab 1 at the University where looked at Content Providers; how they work, and examples such as: The API you use retrieve data from a content provider etc     
Student Developers answering a question
A Content Provider manages access to a central repository of data. A provider is part of an Android application, which often provides its own User Interface for working with the data. 

 I learnt how to make a Calendar provider, which is a repository for a user's calendar events as well as the Calendar Provider API that allows one to perform query, insert, update, and delete operations on calendars, events, attendees, reminders, and so on.

Finally, a word of encouragement to anyone there, programming is not only for the "geeks". Anybody can code. We can all make it if only we work hard and make research outside what we learn in class sessions. Thank you so much.
