TLDR: Your skills in building Android apps will be boosted for development in 2021 with training in these three eBooks and videos from Packt Publishing.
For those who don’t pay much attention to obscure events in the tech world, they’re almost always shocked to learn the real realities behind marketing.
Ask a layman about mobile devices and most will probably correctly say that there are Android phones and iPhones. But thanks to Apple’s galactic dominance in global tech talks, it’s no shock that many of these laymen are mistakenly claiming that the iPhone and its iOS system dominate this market.
As a tech savvy person, you probably know the reality that Android actually is. a leader of almost 3 against 1 on Apple among mobile users. Yet when we hear about app development, it’s almost always about creating for the iPhone, iPad, and iOS environment.
But if you want to reach almost 72% of mobile users in the world, you had better learn how to create for Android. Currently, the mainstay of computer technology publishing Packt Publishing offers three eBooks and training videos for sale, each aimed at helping interested developers tackle and succeed in the Android space.
First the Modernize your Android apps video conference ($ 19.99, 37% off, from TNW Deals) delves into one of the most important issues in Android app development. Through seven lectures spanning nearly 5 hours, instructor and Android application expert Yusuf Saber guides users through the use of Kotlin, a pragmatic, modern and intuitive programming language that is far ahead of Java.
Here, Saber takes an existing Android app built in Java and walks users through a top-to-bottom modernization using Kotlin. Along the way, students learn the power of this streamlined and structured architectural approach using SOLID principles and the common Android architecture using MVP, MVC, and MVVM models.
Builders can deepen their knowledge of Kotlin with a pair of Packt eBooks, starting with Android programming with Kotlin for beginners ($ 19.99, 37% off). This training explores the building blocks of building Android apps, taking a project-like approach, as readers actually create three real-world apps and over a dozen mini-apps to hone their skills.
And Learn Spring for Android Application Development ($ 19.99, 50% off) takes this knowledge even further, by examining how to use Spring’s popular Java-based app building framework with Kotlin code. Again, the training focuses on hands-on project work, with readers assembling their own Android apps using Spring technologies.
