So this course will be a little different from my previous ones, because in this course we are going to build a fully functional To-Do application. We are going to build our app using Kotlin programming language, and you'll see all the benefits and power of concise way of programming with Kotlin. Our To-Do app will combine different android architecture components like Navigation Component, ROOM database, LiveData, ViewModel, Data Binding and more...
You will learn how to follow the principle of single activity and multiple fragments in your app. You will learn how to use Navigation Component in your app, how to work with Safe Args to pass data between fragments, and also create custom made Transition Animations for your destinations.
So why is a To-Do app important, well first and foremost because it teaches you how to build and maintain a database, how to write SQL queries to insert, update, delete data from database, but also how to write custom queries to search through Database, Sort your database by certain criteria and display it in proper way to your RecyclerView.
Also we are going to have a clean architecture in our project, you will learn how to organize your project structure and maintain good code readability.
At the later section of this course I'm going to teach you how to implement data binding to your app, and you'll see all the benefits of using it, because we are going to have less boilerplate codes in our app, plus everything will be separated, and our fragments will look a lot cleaner and simple. You will also be introduced with custom BindingAdapters.
At the end of this course we will implement swipe to delete function to our RecyclerView, also I'll show you how to easily change RecyclerViewlayout, apply a different look to your app with Grid and Staggered Grid layout as well. And when we are talking about RecyclerView, I should also mention that we will implement DiffUtil in our app and that way, increase overall app performance.
Also I need to mention that this course is NOT for ABSOLUTE beginners in android development. Because this course assumes that you already have a basic knowledge of programming in Kotlin, and a basic knowledge of android architecture components.
But if you wish to continue improving your skills and building your knowledge furthermore then this course is definitely the right option for you.
