Review:

“This latest edition of Sams Teach Yourself Android Application Development in 24 Hours is just what you’ve been waiting for if you’ve been waiting to get into Android development. Freshly updated with what you need to know for developing applications using Android Studio for Android Lollipop (Android 5) with Material Design, this book covers what you need to know to get started building applications for Android.”

Ray Rischpater, Author and Engineering Manager at Microsoft

 

“The new edition of Sams Teach Yourself Android Application Development in 24 Hours covers a lot of new features. The book takes you from the beginning through to uploading your own app into the store. All the screen shots in this edition use the new and official Android IDE (the amazing Android Studio IDE).”

Fady A. M. Ibrahim, Android Instructor, Benha Faculty of Computer and Information

 

“Any developer who wants to get up to speed quickly on Android will appreciate this introduction. Beyond the SDK fundamentals, there’s plenty of good information on the things real-world Android apps are made of, such as maps, images, and navigation. This is a great way to dive head-first into Android development, or just to become Android-literate in record time.”

Jonathan Taylor, VP, Mobile Technology, Priceline.com

 

“The authors knock it out of the park for new Android developers and experienced ones who want to extend their prowess. This book is perfectly set-up for a sports technology oriented person like me to teach me the basic principles, give me design knowledge, and then cap that off with how to add and manipulate data. Data-driven applications are the life’s blood of every fantasy sports player and the authors’ ability to break down the path to success with real-life exercises to put these principles into action is a Grand Slam!”

Rick Wolf, President, Fantasy Alarm, and Co-Founder, Fantasy Sports Trade Association
