This was the talk I gave at GDG Brunei DevFest 2013 and I aimed for the content to be basic and accessible with a workable app, so that the attendees could use it as a starting off point for the hackathon, should they want to learn how to build an Android app.
I should have published the APK on the Play Store before the talk so that people could have downloaded the app and see what I was building as part of the talk

2 weeks ago I had the opportunity to present a 15 minute technical talk to the GDG Brunei DevFest W organised by GDG Women Brunei.
I pre-recorded a video just in case that the Internet was not cooperative but thankfully the Internet was good.
An overview of Android development with a quick and easy way to get started in cross platform development (including Android) with PhoneGap
, presented at Google I/O Extended Brunei
. The presentation aims to provide attendees with basic understanding of Android development and providing them tools to create an actual application.
(this is a recorded presentation done after the actual event due to Internet connectivity issues during the event prevented an ideal recording environment)

I highly encourage Brunei developers out there to contribute and give back to the community. During our time, there were no such developer events to my knowledge, and with social media, it is so much easier to get the word and out and just meet up and provide the young developers in the country with opportunities that we never had.
I was contacted by Cikgu Azaman (@azlinux) over a month ago regarding having a Google I/O Extended in Brunei. A hackathon was to be conducted and after throwing around a few ideas, I was put in charge of presenting an Android development session as in intro for the hackathon.
The event was held at iCentre on 27th June and while Internet connectivity didn’t allow a proper Google+ Hangout with a live video presentation (i.e. there was gagal-ness in trying to get things up and running) so we resorted to an audio Skype call while @mfirdaus went through the presentation slides at the Brunei side. So I thought it would be best to do a recorded presentation after the fact for a more complete presentation.
