Join Albert Lo as he discusses what you should know in order to make the most out of the online course "Building Android Applications: Cloud Services."
- [Narrator] To get the most out of this course, there are a few things that you should know before beginning. First, we'll be making use of Java hashmaps, inheritance, and interfaces, so you should have a working knowledge of Java. We'll also be making use of design patterns. If you need a refresher on the strategy design pattern and the singleton design pattern, they are covered in the Foundations of Programming Design Patterns course. Another thing you should know is basic threading concepts.
We'll be talking about runnables and how they work. You should also know about the Android SDK. More specifically, you should know how broadcast receivers work and how to register them. We'll also be making use of the Android application class, so you should be familiar with it and what API methods are available for it. We'll be working on Android Studio for this course. Note that I will be using Android Studio on a Mac. There are a couple of minor differences between Windows and a Mac, and I will highlight these differences as we go through the course, but in general you can develop on either Mac or Windows.
Additionally, you will need a Fabric.io account and a Google account. We'll walk through setting up a Fabric.io account in this course, but you will need to sign up for a Google account if you don't already have one.
