There is a new IDE on the horizon for Android developers, and rumors say it's faster and easier to navigate than the current Eclipse-based Android Developer Tools plugin. Get a first look at Android Studio before its official release, here in this course with David Gassner. David shows how to install Android Studio on both Windows and Mac; create new projects and migrate existing ones from Eclipse; navigate and configure the user interface; and build and export Android apps.
Hi. I'm David Gassner and welcome to Android Studio First Look. In this course, I'll introduce you to Android Studio, Google's IDE of the future for Android app development. First I'll describe how to install Android Studio and where to find the Android SDK and other critical resources after installation. Then I'll take you on a tour of the user interface, managing files and folders, and working with menus, toolbars, and tool windows.
I'll show how to use shortcuts for writing and refactoring codes, and how to use the debugging tools with break points, watch variables and more. And finally, I'll describe how to package a completed Android app for distribution. Android Studio is still in development and this course is based on an early access preview release. But the product is already providing a solid platform for Android developers. I hope that this introduction helps you get started with it quickly.
