Paul's session, 'Building For Multiple Screens', will focus on how to build an application that targets multiple screen sizes using fragments. The session assumes that you're familiar with the anatomy of an Android application (Activities, Views, and etc...). During this session we'll build an Android application that utilizes Fragments to present a custom interface on both phones and tablets. We'll learn how to communicate and share data between fragments without breaking our Object Oriented boundaries using interfaces.
