Join Eric Brynsvold for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Android App Development: Localization and Internationalization.
- [Instructor] If you have access to the exercise files, you can follow along with the same projects that I'll be using in Android Studio throughout this course. Inside the exercise files folder is another folder for each chapter of the course, and inside of each chapter is a subfolder for each video that has a project to follow along with. As we go through the course, there may be changes that are made to the files in between the videos in order to prepare for the next topic, so I recommend that you reload the project from the exercise files for each video.
To load the project, just open Android Studio then navigate to the chapter and video that you're about to watch. Inside the local news folder, select the top level build.gradle file for Android Studio to import the project, and you're good to go. The project that we'll be working with throughout the whole course is an app for a local news organization. In the app, you can view articles and pictures and enter information to sign up for a subscription.
We're just using this basic application as a way to demo internationalization and localization concepts. You'll find it doesn't connect to the network or do much else, but it does a good job of demonstrating the concepts for the course.
