Summary Linux and the Android OS can be considered brothers because of their common DNA. Although Android certainly contains Linux, it extends it in ways that are specific to a mobile platform. During the course, we will explore the Android Operating System as well as how to develop applications for it and prepare them for distribution either independently or through the Google Market. This course is taught by a Certified Java Professional and will teach you how to use Java and the Google provided developer SDK to create exciting applications for Android. Android concepts covered will start with basic controls and form layouts to advanced UI components and custom user created and third party libraries and components. We will develop a full personalized task manager during this course and then prepare it for distribution on the Google Market. Coverage We will illustrate how to use the Google SDK to download various Android OS versions and how to create and manage emulators for each that can be used when testing our application. In addition, we will cover basic Java programming concepts as they relate to Android while we explore both our Eclipse IDE and the structure of our application and directory structure. When you walk away from this course you will know how to manage your Android development environment, code your application in an easy to reuse manner and be prepared to distribute it for sale in the standard Google Market.
