Android Programming The Big Nerd Ranch Guide 4th Edition Pdf Book Description:
As a beginning Android programmer, you face a steep learning curve. Learning Android is like moving to a foreign city. Even if you speak the language, it will not feel like home at first. Everyone around you seems to understand things that you are missing. Things you already knew turn out to be dead wrong in this new context. Android has a culture. That culture speaks Kotlin or Java (or a bit of both), but knowing Kotlin or Java is not enough. Getting your head around Android requires learning many new ideas and techniques. It helps to have a guide through unfamiliar territory. This guide will help you do both. We have trained thousands of professional Android programmers using it. We will lead you through writing several Android applications, introducing concepts and techniques as needed. When there are rough spots, or when some things are tricky or obscure, you will face them head on, and we will do our best to explain why things are the way they are. This approach allows you to put what you have learned into practice in a working app right away rather than learning a lot of theory and then having to figure out how to apply it all later. You will come away with the experience and understanding you need to get going as an Android developer.To use this book, you need to be familiar with Kotlin, including classes and objects, interfaces, listeners, packages, inner classes, object expressions, and generic classes.
If these concepts do not ring a bell, you will be in the weeds by page 2. Start instead with an introductory Kotlin book and return to this book afterward. There are many excellent introductory books available, so you can choose one based on your programming experience and learning style. May we recommend Kotlin Programming: The Big Nerd Ranch Guide? If you are comfortable with object-oriented programming concepts, but your Kotlin is a little shaky,
you will probably be OK. We will provide some brief explanations about Kotlin specifics throughout the book. But keep a Kotlin reference handy in case you need more support as you go through the book. To focus on how modern Android applications are developed, this book now uses third-party libraries instead of just the APIs within the framework or within Jetpack. One example is dropping HttpURLConnection and other lower-level networking APIs in favor of using Retrofit and the suite of libraries it depends on. This is a big departure from our previous books, and we believe that this will better prepare you to dive into professional application development after reading our book. The libraries we chose to use are libraries we use in our daily lives as Android developers for our clients
