I want to develop an app that will show available animals at a shelter. There would be three main pages for dogs, cats, and smallies. The app would just basically show what animals are available with their stats and pics. Clicking on each individual animal would bring up more info with a longer profile. This will be my first app and I think it's a small enough project that I won't get in over my head but then I don't know everything that I'll run into. I'm basically looking at this as a learning experience that will maybe lead to something more complex and useful down the road. So, does this sound like a good first project to anyone else? Besides learning Java, I think my first major hurdle will be figuring out where to pull the data from. The shelter has a web site with the info but I'm not sure if I can just pull it all from the web pages or if there's a simpler way. Since you're probably going to say it depends on what I know already, here's a little background. I work at an IT help desk, so I'm comfortable with terms and technology. I have taken basic classes in C and Perl. And I have at various points built and maintained a few small web sites as well as started a couple forums. I've started going through the info at the Android Developers web site (developer.android.com).
