Develop apps for Android with the official Google IDE. Learn how to start editing and debugging code in Android Studio.
- [David] Software developers who want to build apps for Android mobile devices need Android Studio, an integrated development environment, or IDE, that's available for free from Google. Android Studio is based on InteilliJ IDEA Community Edition, a leading Java IDE from JetBrains. Like Android Studio, InteilliJ IDEA is available for Windows, macOS, and Linux, and the community edition is also free. But you don't need IntelliJ IDEA to create Android apps. Android Studio has everything you need. Android Studio was first announced at the Google IO Conference in May of 2013, and then released as a 1.0 product in December of 2014. It's been through many iterations since then, in fact, it's updated frequently, between two and four times a year. It inherits great code editing and debugging functionality from IntelliJ IDEA, and adds lots of tools that are unique to Android development, layout editors, resource editors and managers, tools for managing the Android SDK and virtual devices, and lots more. This course covers Android Studio 4.0. This new version was still in the Canary Channel, a preview state, when the course was recorded. There are some new features since the last version of the course, and other features that have been improved. And the entire product has been made faster, and easier to use. My name is David Gassner, and I'd like to welcome you to this tour of the latest version of Android Studio
