blogdetails

Whether it a small project or a big one, whether you’re an experienced or just a beginner with Android App development, before starting we always need to recognize the resources that we have. The resources like videos, blogs, libraries and tools are always useful for any developer or team. We have so many online resources that will teach us everything we need to get started.

Android being an open source platform, can be used in many ways and there is no restriction of entry. Hence we can develop applications and place them on the marketplace without any need to meet quality assurance criteria. So here we have few of the best online Android development training resources.

Developer Android

It is the official Android development website provided by Google. It has all the documentation required to know before starting developing any android application. They have a training section as well where they guide on how to build an Android app from scratch. If anyone has interest in designs and distribution, he can find documentation for it as well and many more guides over here.

Vogella

This site has tremendous collection of free Android tutorials that covers everything from the basics to more advanced topics. Every tutorial is excellently written with good coding examples that developers can relate to their application. Vogella have resources links as well, in case anyone needs to refer or dig deeper into the topic.

My Life with Android

This is a blog that is more or less like a developer’s diary entry. Managed by Gabor Pellar where he has detailed write ups on his experiences with Android development. The data might be correct or might not be, because it is written by someone who is just showcasing what all he has learnt and found out while developing Android apps. But then yeah it is a great resource as we can always learn from other mistakes and their learning as well.

OkHttp

It is an open-source HTTP and SPDY library for Android and Java. So whenever we go nuts trying to nail down an HTTP problem this is the place we need to look for the solution. OkHttp is built on HttpUrlConnection and hence the API is so much acquainted. It is up-to-date with fixes from the Android codebase, meaning we don’t have to face any compatibility issues with previous versions of the operating system.

Android Weekly

As the name suggests, it is a weekly magazine. Just opt for this newsletter to learn about new libraries, tools, blog posts, various musings in the Android development community and more. Not interested in the newsletter, well go ahead and check the site every Monday for the latest issue.

So these were few of the best resources that we could use while developing an android application. However knowledge of Java is must to build a strong foundation in Android development and then move on with the Android development tutorials and articles.
