7+ Hours of Video Instruction
Android App Development Fundamentals 2/e uses Paul Deitel's unique "app-driven" approach to get you up and running quickly with Google's popular Android SDK.
The lessons in this LiveLesson were carefully designed to introduce you to key Android 4.3 (Jelly Bean) and 4.4 (KitKat) features and APIs. You first learn how to install the Android Integrated Development Environment. You’ll then learn everything you need to start building Android apps–beginning with a test drive of the Doodlz app in lesson 1, then building your first app in lesson 2. By the time you reach Lesson 4, you’ll be creating a sophisticated Twitter-based app.
