Native Android 101: A Quickstart to Building Android Apps

TwitterFacebookRedditLinkedInHacker News

I am pleased to announce that my third full length quickstart course, Native Android 101: A Quickstart to Building Android Apps, was published on the learning website Udemy. The course follows in the same direction as my Ionic Framework 101 and NativeScript 101 quickstart courses, but this time instead of a hybrid technology we’re using the native Android SDK.

If you’re unfamiliar with the native Android SDK, it is the development kit that Google published for developing Android applications using the Java programming language.

A little background on what I had hoped to accomplish in this course.

I have many tutorials scattered around the internet in both video and written format. Many of these tutorials are complex or focused on niche topics that wouldn’t necessarily help you in learning how to build mobile applications or learning a technology in general. You’d stumble upon them on an as necessary basis. The Native Android 101 course was designed to be different. It was structured in such a way that it would cover multiple concepts in mobile application development while still bringing you to a very reachable goal. In this case, the goal is a mobile application that uses the concepts you learned about in the course.

It is a start-to-finish beginners course in the sense that it will cover topics ranging from how to get set up with Android Studio and the Android SDK on your computer all the way to building, testing, and troubleshooting a fully functional application.

As a benefit for being loyal followers of my blog, I’m offering the course to everyone reading this for 10% off with promo code ANDEV10.

I encourage anyone starting out to take a look at this beginner level course. Unlike many of my tutorials, I’ve actually included the full source code to the project developed in the course. This is good for comparing your work with the anticipated final result.

Feel free to ask me questions or provide me with feedback if you’ve already taken it. A five star review is also much appreciated!
