Android Programming Course And Certification

What is Android? 

Android is simply an open source and Linux-based operating system for mobile devices like smartphones and tablet computers. Android was developed by the Open Handset Alliance, led by Google, and other top tech companies.

What is Android Programming? 

Android programming is the method by which applications are built and developed for the Android devices operating system. Applications are often built in Java programming language using the Android software development kit (SDK), however other development environments and programming languages are also available. 

Android Programming is programmed or written in the Java programming language and use Java core libraries. Its applications are composed of one or more applications components which are : activities, services, content providers, and broadcast receivers. 

Advantages of Android Programming Language: 

1. Android is an open source programmig language, so it is robust with very large developer community which keeps on interacting with each other and also gives information about the upcoming versions of Android. 

2. Easy to integrate and customize. 

3. It enhances security. 

4. It provides scope for innovation and it has a global presence. 

5. It has free software development tools like IDE Android development studio for the developer community which reduces the development costs for the development company. 

6. It provides lots of job opportunities with promising salary.

7. It provides self-employment opportunity.

Features of Android Programming Language: 

The Android software development kit (SDK) has an entire set of development tools. These tools include a debugger, libraries, a simple handset emulator based on QEMU, documentation, sample code, and tutorials. Some currently supported development platforms are computers running Linux (any modern desktop Linux distribution), Mac OS X 10.5.8 or later, and Windows 7 or later.

Enhancements to Android's SDK are interconnected with the overall Android platform development. The SDK also have supports for older versions of the Android platform in case developers wish to target their applications at older devices. The development tools are also downloadable components, so after downloading the latest version and platform, you can also download older platforms and tools for compatibility testing. 

Android applications are packaged and compiled in .apk format which is stored under /data/app folder on the Android OS (the folder is accessible only to the root user for security reasons). APK package also contains .dex files (compiled byte code files known as Dalvik executables), resource files, etc. Android SDK package contains some toolkit like Android Debug Bridge. This consists of both client and server-side programs which corresponds with one another. The ADB is usually accessed through the command-line interface, even if many other graphical user interfaces exist to control ADB. 

Android is a popular computing platform use on Linux operating system. The first commercial version of Android was introduced to the market in the year 2008 in the form of a mobile phone platform, back when the most popular cell phones for a business user was the Blackberry, when the iPhone was beginning to make meaningful waves across all sectors  and when the majority of phone users were still tapping out texts from a flip phone.

The Android is a layered environment, one that is built upon a foundation of the Linux kernel and includes rich functionality. The users interface subsystem includes everything you would expect from a mature operating system environment including windows, views, and widgets for displaying common elements like edit boxes, lists or drop-down lists. The browser is both capable for general web browsing and available for embedding directly into your own applications.

Android is a powerful operating system supporting a large number of applications in smartphones. These applications make life more comfortable and advanced for the users and they are as followed : activities, services  content providers, and broadcast receivers etc. Each component performs a different role in the overall application behavior and each one can be activated individually 

Android is a powerful operating system competing with Apple 4Gs and supports great features, such features are Beautiful UI, Connectivity, Storage, Media support, Multi touch, Multi tasking, Multi language, Wi-Fi direct, Android beam, Messaging and so on. 

Android Applications Development, to begin with, requires the following software, which is: Java JDK5 or Later version and Android Studio. There are so many sophisticated technologies that are available to develop Android applications, the common technologies, which are predominantly used are: Android Studio and Eclipse IDE. You can download and install the software to start development.
