Small guide on how to start learning Android development

Here at Mobiversal we encourage people to come over and start a developer career even though they are juniors in the beginning.

Today I will start with an Android developer’s guide. I have made a little research and based also on internal experience in our company, I’ve drawn some conclusions on the steps an Android beginner developer should follow in order to become more experienced.

First of all it’s a big plus if you know OOP (object oriented programming). It is very helpful in the learning process. So if you don’t know OOP you should start learning this in the very beginning, at  least the main concepts.

Then we recommend to start learning Android from this tutorial:

Here are also the books we recommend:

1. Pro Android 3 (the most important part for an overview is the first chapter)

2. The Android Developer’s Cookbook: Building Applications with the Android SDK

3. Java, A Beginner’s Guide, 5th Edition

After you have completed these steps, you can use for your day by day reference and to get help www.vogella.de and http://tutorials-android.blogspot.com/p/training.html

We hope you will enjoy these advices and please let us know whether it helped you in the learning process. Maybe we can start a possible cooperation as well…we are always open to hire new talents 🙂
