Join Joe Marini for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Android: Communicating with the User.
- [Instructor] I've provided Exercise Files for this course that you can use to follow along with the videos you see onscreen. You can see here that I've copied the Exercise Files folder to my desktop, but you can place them anywhere on your computer that you like. Let's take a look inside. At the top level of the folder, you'll see two folders, one named Finished and one named Start. The Finished folder contains the finished version of the code for the completed application that we will build in this course. The Start folder contains the starting point code that I will be using to build towards the finished app.
In each chapter, I'll add more code to the start version of the app. For this reason, I recommend that you follow these chapters in the course in their recorded order. But how you use these Exercise Files is completely up to you. If you want to use the starting point version to follow along with me and build the finished example, that's great. If you'd rather jump ahead to the finished version to poke around in the debugger and see how things work, well, that's great too. Once you have the Exercise Files folder where you want it on your computer, then you're ready to proceed.
