In this video, Doug Winnie review the Android SDK, that provides prebuilt code and widgets that you will use in your Android apps. The Android SDK includes multiple API levels that are designed for specific versions, or later, of the Android operating system. The Android SDK is installed with Android Studio.
- [Narrator] As a developer you will work with tools…that will connect all the things that Android can do…with the code that you create in your app.…For instance in your app,…you can create a button that the user can tap…in order for something to happen or take place.…When you create the code,…you will place a button on the screen…and then say what will happen when the button is pressed.…But you don't have to program how the screen knows…you are pressing it with your finger,…nor do you need to tell the graphics processor…how to draw each pixel on the screen.…All of these are done for you.…The software package that does this is the Android SDK,…or software development kit.…
The SDK are pre-built components of code…that cover all the basics for you,…from what a number is to how to connect to a database,…and how to know when a button is being…clicked by a mouse or tapped with a finger.…When you work with the Android SDK…there are different versions called API levels.…Each level can support a version of Android…and any version that comes out after it.…
