About This Book

Android Application Development For Dummies is a beginner’s guide to developing Android applications. You don’t need any Android application development experience under your belt to get started. You can approach this material as a blank slate because the Android platform accomplishes various mechanisms by using different paradigms that most programmers aren’t used to using — or developing with — on a day-to-day basis.

The Android platform is a device-independent platform, which means that you can develop applications for various devices. These devices include, but aren’t limited to phones, e-book readers, netbooks, televisions, and GPS devices.

Finding out how to develop for the Android platform opens a large variety of development options for you. This book distills hundreds, if not thousands, of pages of Android documentation, tips, tricks, and tutorials into a short, digestible format that allows you to springboard into your future as an Android developer. This book isn’t a recipe book, but it gives you the basic knowledge to assemble various pieces of the Android framework to create interactive and compelling applications.
