To follow along with this course, the requirements are pretty straightforward. From a tools perspective, you'll need a code editor and, optionally, an Android 4.1 enabled device. You can use whichever code editor you prefer. I'm going to be working with Eclipse on the Mac. It's a free editor for both Mac and Windows. Most of our demonstrations and testing will be done with the Galaxy Nexus, which currently comes with the Android 4.1 installed. We'll also be using an emulator that is installed as part of the Android SDK.
That's it for tools. From a knowledge perspective, the more you're familiar with native development for Android devices the better. But this is not a code intensive course, and we'll step lightly through the building of a first app, so you can get your feet wet without much preparation.
