Join Joe Marini for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know before watching this course, part of Google Firebase for Android: First Look.
- [Voiceover] Before starting this course, there are some concepts you should already be familiar with. First, you should already have experience programming in Java and XML, which are the two main languages you use to build android apps. If you need to brush up on your skills in these areas you should take a look at Java Essential Training and XML Essential Training, both of which are available here on lynda.com. You should also already know the basics of building android applications. If you're new to developing android apps, I suggest you watch the course, Android App Development Essential Training.
To build the examples in this course, we're going to be using Android Studio, which is Google's officially supported integrated development environment or IDE. You should already be familiar with how to use Android Studio to write code, run the debugger, and generally use the IDE to create android apps. If you need to learn how to use Android Studio, I recommend you take a look at Android Studio Essential Training. Once you're comfortable with using Java and XML to build android apps in Android Studio, you're ready to proceed with the rest of this course.
