Introduction to Android

Module 1 - Building an App.

Equivalent to 2 days live training.

  • Get started quickly with Android. Starting with installing the IDE (Android Studio) and configuring Emulators, you'll be building a small but functional App using GUI Views, Activities and Intents.
  • We'll be showing you how to design for different tablets and phones. Also, we'll be deploying the App to a real Android device.
  • This is Module 1 of a series, in Module 2 we expand the App and go into more depth.
A good working knowledge of standard Java is needed.
