This one-of-a-kind video package gives you instant skills from over 10 hours of quick, easy DVD video LiveLessons™. Using the signature Deitel “app-driven” approach, renowned instructor Paul Deitel teaches you from complete working programs, not trivial code fragments. The video lessons focus on exactly what you need to know to master new skills fast and put your skills to work immediately.

Android App Development Fundamentals is for Java programmers who are not familiar with Android programming. In each lesson you build a different Android app that demonstrates key Android programming concepts.

These LiveLessons videos begin with an introduction to the Eclipse Android Developer Tools (ADT) and a tutorial on how to run an app in an Android Virtual Device (AVD). You then learn to build apps that demonstrate such key Android concepts as the ADT plugin, GUIs, layouts, intents, handlers, asset management, multitouch, graphics, sound, collections, threading, and animations.
