This course is based on Android 2.x
Make Android apps that reach billions of people. Get started TODAY.
This training course will guide you through the creation of a social+geolocated Android app that integrates with Facebook, Twitter and the Google Maps API. The course is taught by Mohit Deshpande, Android App Trainer and Java developer, and was created in collaboration with Pablo Farias Navarro, founder of Zenva.
Things you will learn in this course:
There are PDF summary guides for each chapter with the key points and UML diagrams of the classes showcased in the videos.
You will also get the full source code of the Social Notes app, which you can use as a starting point for your own projects!
In this course, we will be setting up the development environment and the Android SDK so that we can get started in the world of Android. We will also be creating an account on the Google Play Store so that we may later publish applications to the Google Play Store. We will be using the Eclipse IDE as our development environment and we will integrate with Android by downloading and installing the Android Development Tools plugin for Eclipse.
In this course, we will be taking a look at the model of the Social Notes application. We will delve into the world of SQLite and Content Providers. We will be seeing how an application can persist data in a SQLite database in an Android application. We will show the most efficient ways to perform such database operations as well.
In this course, we will be examining the user interface of the Social Notes application. We will immerse ourselves in XML and we will see how the various views and menus of the application are created and their various UI elements, such as EditTexts, Buttons, and ActionBar menu items. We will show on the emulator how a change in the view affects the application.
In this course, we will be seeing how the controller of the Social Notes application pulls together the UI and the model. The controller is what manages the view and keeps track of the model. Several segments of code in the controller class will be altered and their changes will be show on the emulator.
In this course, we will be tweeting to Twitter in the Social Notes application as we learn how to use the official Twitter application to circumvent the Open Authentication and the official Twitter API and SDK.
