9780321902931: Learning Android Application Programming: A Hands-On Guide to Building Android Applications

Learning Android™ Application Programming will help you master modern Android programming by building a fully functional app from the ground up. Working with the Android 4.3 toolset, you’ll solve real-world problems faced by every Android developer and learn best practices for success with any mobile development project.

 
Ideal for developers who have little or no Android experience but have basic Java experience, this tutorial teaches through carefully structured exercises that address the entire development process. Leading Android developers James Talbot and Justin McLean guide you through building a real biking mobile app that can handle everything from mileage tracking to route planning. Each chapter builds your knowledge, step-by-step, and in the end you will have a complete, working app.


Along the way, you’ll gain hands-on experience with writing code that can run on the widest spectrum of devices while still leveraging Android’s newest features. You’ll also discover proven solutions for the occasionally messy realities of Android development, from inaccurate sensor data to inadequate device battery life–pitfalls that most other Android books ignore.

He is currently working on constructing exciting web, mobile web, and Android applications built on top of a Java Content Repository based on open source standards. He cowrote Object-Oriented Programming with ActionScript 2.0 (New Riders Press, 2004) and Adobe Flex 3: Training from the Source (Adobe Press, 2008). He has also recorded training videos for Lynda.com and Total Training as well as spent extensive time teaching in the classroom. He has extensive knowledge of all Adobe web products and has spoken at numerous conferences.


Justin Mclean has been writing code since the early days of the web. For fifteen years he has managed his own consulting company, Class Software, and during that time he has worked on hundreds of browser, desktop, and mobile applications. He has seen significant changes of technology in the industry, surviving the browser wars and the dot-com bubble. He is an Apache Flex committer, board member and release manager; an Adobe Community Professional; teaches training courses; and has spoken at numerous conferences all over the world. In his spare time he tinkers about with open source electronics.

Review:

“James Talbot and Justin McLean have done excellent work creating this beginner’s tutorial. The hands-on focus of the book takes the reader from installing the development environment to writing the app and finally publishing the app. Topics include what most developers would want to know, from basic app structure and function, styling the app, testing and optimization, to using social media.”
--Matthew Boles, learning specialist, Brightcove Inc.

 

Learning Android Application Programming is a treasure trove of holistic information on developing applications for Android devices. It should satisfy those who prefer detailed descriptions as well as those who enjoy a book chock full of high-quality code samples. This book is a one-stop shop to take the reader from zero to app publish via a most relevant sample application. Throughout the book, the sample app is built, refactored, and optimized as the reader picks up all the necessary concepts and skills needed to become a true Android developer. Outstanding work, Justin and James!”
--Jun Heider, senior architect and development manager, RealEyes Media

 

“A unique book that iteratively covers every aspect–requirements, design, developing, testing, and publishing–of a production-grade Android application.”
--Romin Irani, owner, Mind Storm Software

 

Learning Android™ Application Programming covers a rich variety of commonly encountered scenarios when approaching the Android development platform. Newcomers can step through the provided examples in an easily approachable format, while those who are more familiar with Android will find many useful nuggets scattered throughout. Everything is written in an understandable way and demonstrated through concrete examples, which can be immediately applied to a multitude of projects–great stuff!”
--Joseph Labrecque, senior interactive software engineer, University of Denver
