David Gassner describes everything you need to know to get started building Android apps with Google's Android SDK and Developer Tools. Starting with a brief look at Android's history, the course takes you through installing the ADT Bundle with the Eclipse IDE, preparing your devices (both real and virtual) for testing, and creating your first Android project. Then learn how to lay out screens and manage an app's flow with intents and activities, define the user interface and navigation, and make your app interactive. David also concentrates on making sure your app is responsive, can adapt to multiple screen sizes, and store and display data.
My name is David Gassner and this is Android SDK Essential Training. In this course, I'll show you how to get started developing apps for Android devices. After a brief look at the history of Android, I'll show you how to install the SDK and the Android developer tools with Eclipse on your computer. And how to prepare virtual and physical devices for testing. Then I'll describe how to create brand new Android projects, how to add screens, and how to define user interfaces in layout files.
I'll show you how to make an app interactive with widgets, lists and other visual components, and how to present lists of data and images. I hope this course helps you get started building apps for the ever-expanding world of Android, the operating system, the application framework, and Android mobile devices.
