The Droid is here (literally, sitting in my pocket), and I have the next two days off of work - plus the weekend. Minus personal commitments, that’s about two full (call it 16 hour) days to get some work done. While I have lots of things that could use my attention - a number of neglected projects, my big new PHPsa project, and some server consolidation at home - I’ve decided to dedicate the time to Android development.

I’ve got the ADK installed and running, and the emulator is wonderful (especially with the Droid skin). And I know it’s wrong, but I think I’m going to be developing the first app for Android 2.0 (especially given the new ContactsContract API in 5).

I’m having a few issues with Subclipse, even on the latest OpenSuSE 11.1, and still have a few things I want to do on the phone… but hopefully I’ll have a beta build of the app by the end of the weekend. I’ve already done most of the data modeling and sketched out the storyboard.

I’m not going to say much about what the app is until it’s ready, but it’s something targeted at people like me - SysAdmins with way too many things on their plate for their number of waking hours.
