- [Instructor] Throughout this course, I will be touching on a lot of different areas of the Android operating system. I recommend that you make sure you are comfortable with some of the basic concepts involved in developing an Android application, A great place to start on this subject is with the course, "Android Development Essential Training: "Your First App with Kotlin." I will be showing you some code in order to demonstrate exactly how some of the new features of Android 11 are implemented. This code will be in Kotlin, so I recommend that you be familiar with the Kotlin language. If you are more comfortable with Java, don't worry. The code I will be going over is almost exactly the same as its Java counterparts. Android is becoming Kotlin-first, though, so to get yourself up to speed, you can take a look at the course, "Kotlin Essential Training." You also need to make sure you are comfortable working with Android Studio, as you will need to install the latest Android STK to work with any of the new features in Android 11. There is a nice guide on the latest version of Android Studio at the time of this course called "Android Studio Essential Training 2020.'
