how to become android developer
Few (easy) steps…
So lets start from the beginning. With each step you should feel more comfortable and independent in new environment. Follow them until you will be able to learn by yourself.
Prepare the environment – it was really hard to me. What Java to choose, how to configure Eclipse and SDK.
Make the “Hello, World” app – you will discover how easy it may be. But you should be warned it won’t be as easy with applications that will be doing more than showing “Hello” message.
Learn! – now comes the hardest. You will need to learn Android API. There are a few paths. Choose the one most comfortable to you:
- Learn from examples. There are quite nice examples on the Android homepage. Here is the exact link. It will make you comfortable in many aspects of Android development and will help you know what are you really searching for.
- Try to make your own app and learn from Android documentation (the hardest one for the beginners).
Make your own app! – the sooner or later you will want to make your first application. Do not wait with it too long as it is great way to learn Android API even more!
Register as an Android developer – register as an Android developer on the Android Market via this link. It will cost you $25 but you will get access to the most powerful tool for developers! You will be able to publish your application as free or paid (depends of country you live in) to be accessible to most of Android users all over the world!
And that’s it! Follow those steps carefully and you will be able to call yourself an Android Developer!
