Intro to Android Application Development Course

This course provides an ideal, quick-start tutorial for anyone interested in developing Android mobile device applications, from the student or hobbyist to the experienced programmer wanting to enter the mobile device app market.

We are witnessing an explosion in the use of handheld mobile devices worldwide - smart phones, tablets, and handheld game devices. The Android operating system is a popular OS on many of these units.

This course is organized in a logical, evolutionary manner starting with configuration of the development environment and ending with two comprehensive projects.

The beginning chapters cover basic application components and configuration of the Android emulator and basic user interface design, whereas later chapters cover how to accomplish more involved areas such as use of GPS, graphics, networking, and databases.This course will also show you how to publish your application.

Because the Android development software provides an emulator program, the student doesn't need to own an Android mobile device to take advantage of this book.

Best of all, you’ll earn an impressive Certificate of Completion in Android Apps Development suitable for framing when you're finished!
