What you should know: Android Development Essential Training: Create Your First App (2016)

This course is designed for software developers who want to create apps for Android devices. When you build Android apps, you'll be programming with Java and XML. And the more you know about these languages, the more effective you can be as an Android developer. Starting with Android 7, Nougat, when you program in Java for Android, you’re working with Oracle’s OpenJDK. With a few exceptions, Java 6 and 7 syntax works. Advanced Java syntax is used extensively, such as inner and anonymous classes. And with some changes to an Android project’s configuration, you can even use some features that were introduced in Java 8, including lambda expressions and method references.
