Join Joe Marini for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Google Play Services For Android.
- [Voiceover] I've provided exercise files for this course…that you can use to follow along…with the videos you see on-screen.…Now you can see here I've copied…the ExerciseFiles folder to my desktop,…but I've just done that for easy access.…You can place them anywhere on your computer that you like.…Let's take a look inside.…The exercise files are organized by chapter,…with one folder for each chapter in the course.…Within each chapter, you'll find folders for each exercise.…Inside each of the exercise folders,…you'll find the starting point for the code for each example…that we'll use to build the finished working app.…
I've also provided a folder named Solutions…that contains the finished code…for each example in the course.…Inside the Solutions folder, once again…you'll find folders that correspond…to each chapter in the course.…In these folders, you'll find the completed code examples.…In some cases, I've consolidated the examples…in that chapter into a single finished working app…so you can see the various concepts of that chapter…
Programming expert Joe Marini covers how to retrieve and work with a user's location and get continuous location updates with Location services; target and authenticate users and access their profile information with Google Sign-In; and work with the Google Drive API to store and retrieve content.
