Android for Beginners
Download the Android Studio software bundle from https://developer.android.com/studio/index.html, but DON’T INSTALL IT! We’ll do this in Lecture 3
Know basic Java concepts and how to write Java code
This course is essentially for people who have prior experience working with Java and would like to expand their horizons to mobile app development.
Android is a strong platform for such people, and we will be providing you a good overview and understanding of the basic tools every Android programmer should be able to use.
As far as prerequisites are concerned, just be familiar with Java and Java-related terminology, and you’ll be good to go!
The course is broken into 4 sections - first we’ll set you up, then we’ll put some content on your screen and save app data. After this, we’ll get an app-launching screen (Splash screen) set up, and we’ll teach you how to store and access data in your app. Finally, we’ll debug and export your app, making it ready for the Play Store!
This course should take around less than 5 hours to complete, but if you really want to get something out of it, you might want to watch some of the videos over and over until you completely understand what’s going on.
Who this course is for:
- This course is meant for programmers who are generally familiar with Java concepts and code
- This course is for newbies looking to learn the basics of an Android app
- This course is NOT for people looking for a way to create a next-generation Snapchat
