Develop Android Apps with Ruby

Hi Alina, this is a jruby users group. JRuby <http://jruby.org/> is not java, its Ruby (a different programming language) running on the JVM (Java Virtual Machine). Ruby is a really great language, and in my opinion, an easier language to start programming with than Java. With JRuby, and a cool project called Ruboto <http://ruboto.org/> it is certainly possible to use JRuby to write Android apps. But, depending on where you are in your studies with Java, it might not be the quickest path to getting an app written. As for what you need to learn, it kind of depends on what kind of app youd like to make. Obviously, the more you learn about programming, the easier it will be to make apps, and the more complex and interesting the apps you make can be. Android has a mailing list forum for developers like this one here<https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/android-de... people ...
