In this video, Doug Winnie reviews the location of the documentation that is available for developers to understand the widgets and classes that are part of the Android SDK, as well as other materials such as design standards, app guidelines and certifications. Documentation for API elements contain examples, summaries, constructor information and the fields and methods you will use in the API.
