Overview

This innovative product uses interactive video to give developer/designers a solid understanding of how to design apps that can run on many different Android-based devices, under Android versions up to 2.3. Users will learn to set up an Android development environment, define device emulators, and connect to actual Android devices. The video also explains the fundamentals of Android layouts and user interfaces. It introduces the process of programming an app's interaction with Activities and Services and explains how to access existing Android system components. It also looks at how to ensure that an app runs on as many Android devices, screen sizes, and form factors as possible. It also explains how to package an app and publish it to the Android Marketplace.

Experienced instructor Constantin Ehrenstein presents five hours of exceptional quality video tutorials, complete with lesson files, assessment quizzes, and review materials. The video is wrapped in a unique interface that allows the viewer to jump to any topic and also bookmark individual sections for later review. The unique Watch-and-Work mode shrinks the video into a small window to allow the student to work alongside the video. Project files used in the lessons are included on the disc so viewers can practice what they've learned, and interactive review questions help reinforce freshly gained knowledge.

The DVD-ROM is bundled with a printed booklet that provides supplemental material to enhance the video training.
