Join Albert Lo for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know, part of Android Development: Modern Android UI Design Elements.
- [Instructor] To get the most out of this course, there are a few things you should know before getting started. First, you should have a working knowledge of Java. We will be making use of things like ArrayLists, Abstract Base Classes, Enums, and Interfaces. If you're not familiar with these types of concepts, I suggest you check out the course, Java Essential Training. Another thing that you should know is basic RecyclerView concepts, like the ViewHolder Pattern, Creating ViewHolders, and Binding ViewHolders.
I will be talking about RecyclerView and how to create separate ViewHolders and RecyclerView Adapters. You should also know about the Android UI controls. This includes Layout files and how to access UI attributes that are defined in the Layout files. We will be working with Version 2.3.3 of Android Studio for this course. Note that I will be using Android Studio on a Mac, but I don't anticipate any differences between developing on a Mac or on Windows.
We will be using API 24 from the SDK Manager. For further details on how to upgrade your Android SDK using the SDK Manager, check out the What You Should Know section of my Android Cloud Services course. Additionally, you will need a Google account, which we will use to upload our photos to. If you don't have a Google account already, for example if you don't have a Gmail account, I recommend that you sign up for one now.
