You're excited to get started building the next best Android application known to man, right? Good! But hold on — don't get ahead of yourself. In this chapter, I walk you through the process of creating your first Android application, a very simple Hello Android application. This app demonstrates a few key aspects of the development process and requires no coding at all. (What? No coding? How's that possible? Follow along as I show you.) Building it will get you up and running as an app developer. Just go one step at a time — with a little practice, you'll be creating that blockbuster Android app in no time.
