Android 1: Introduction to Mobile Application Development
In this course, you will learn the fundamentals of writing an Android application. Mobile devices have become a prominent part of our daily lives, and we have come to rely on them for on-the-go information. Since its inception in 2005, Android has grown to become an integral part of this revolution. It is a Linux-based operating system and is considered an open source technology. Most Android applications are developed using a customized version of Java.
Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:
- Demonstrate understanding of basic view components and application classes.
- Program strings, drawables, and lists.
- Display dialogs, menus, styles, and themes.
- Save and manipulate data using Shared Preferences and SQLite databases.
- Thread processes.
- Create an application that implements multiple activities and can interact with a SQLite database.
From beginning to end, you will learn by doing Linux and Java-based projects and submitting them for instructor feedback. These projects, as well as the final project, will add to your portfolio and contribute to certificate completion. Besides a browser and Internet connection, all software is provided online by the O’Reilly School of Technology.
This course counts toward the Mobile Application Certificate.
