Yeah, but the way he said it sounded wrong. The Android kernel is programmed in c,c++ and is a Linux based os. You can program apps for Android in most languages now: c++, c, and ruby just to name a few. Most choose java since google has pushed it enough and made it simple.

The app itself is written in java. And, there is some XML.

Check out eclipse.

Here is a help site for windows: but you can apply it to linux or macosx

This. Java is certainly the most widely-used and most supported by Google, but more and more compilers and VMs are emerging. For example, the MonoDroid project is working on a Mono VM for apps written in C#.
