In this book, The Big Nerd Ranch's legendary trainers take students on an easy-to-follow tour of the Android mobile development platform. Step by step, students learn how to write and run robust, efficient code -- starting with simple programs, and then enhancing them with increasingly sophisticated features from throughout the Android SDK. Succinct, engaging, and enlightening, these chapters and exercises build a complete working knowledge of the key concepts and APIs needed to efficiently create compelling apps with today's Android development tools. Each chapter has been carefully designed to provide the tools and knowledge students need to dive into Android development. Better still, the material has been tested and refined in Big Nerd Ranch’s popular Android classes.
