Android Programming: The Big Nerd Ranch Guide is an introductory Android book for programmers with Kotlin experience.
Based on Big Nerd Ranch’s popular Android Bootcamp, this guide will lead you through the wilderness using hands-on example apps combined with clear explanations of key concepts and APIs. This book focuses on practical techniques for developing apps in Kotlin compatible with Android 7.0 (Nougat) through Android 12 and beyond.
Write and run code every step of the way, using Android Studio to create apps that integrate with other apps, download and display pictures from the web, store data in databases, and more. Learn about the latest patterns and techniques, including Kotlin coroutines and Jetpack Compose, a new way to build Android UIs. Each chapter and app has been designed and tested to provide the knowledge and experience you need to get started in Android development.
From the Publisher
At Big Nerd Ranch, we believe that to be an Android programmer, you must:
write Android applicationsunderstand what you are writing
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.
