Android Training Modules


The Basics: An introduction to the major components of


an Android application, what tools and languages one uses to make an Android application, and what an Android activity looks like. Simple GUIs, Part One: How to create a user interface


using layout XML files, how to use fields, labels, and buttons, and how to organize them into rows and columns on-screen. Simple GUIs, Part Two: How to organize widgets in


other forms, and how to use checkboxes and radio buttons. Development Tools: How to use the Dalvik Debug


Monitor System (DDMS) to inspect error logs, manipulate files on the emulator, and simulate incoming calls and GPS fixes. Also, how to use the Hierarchy Viewer to inspect a running activity's user interface, to isolate problems and ensure the user interface meets designer specifications. Selection Widgets: How to use adapters to convert data


collections into rows in a list, how Android operates with or without the use of a touch-screen, and how to use “spinners” (dropdown selection lists). Fancy Lists: How to make rows in a list involve multiple


pieces of data, and then how to do that efficiently, without wasting memory or CPU time. Fancy Widgets: How to collect dates and times from


users, how to implement user interfaces with tabs, and how to otherwise put more information in an activity than can fit on a single screen. Menus and Messages: How to set up option menus


(launched via the hardware MENU button), how to set up context menus (launched via a long-tap on a user interface element), how to display dialog boxes, and how to display short message “toasts” on-screen. Threads: How Android works with operating system


threads, how to allow a background thread and foreground thread to work together to update a user interface, and how to indicate to the user that background processing is ongoing (“progress indicators”). The Activity Lifecycle: What causes activities to be created and destroyed; what you should do when

Course Title: Android Application development course Duration: Five days Format: Instructor-led lectures and Demonstrations; instructor-led Live Remote delivery available Price: Contact your local sales representative


activities are created and destroyed; when activities are paused, stopped, started, and resumed (and what to do in those cases); and how to save your user interface state in case the activity is being ejected from RAM due to low memory conditions. Resources: How non-Java assets (e.g., images) are


packaged in an Android application, how to externalize and internationalize strings, and how to declare multiple layouts or draw able to accommodate multiple screen sizes and densities. Databases: What SQLite is and how it relates to


Android, how to create a database and update its schema when the application is updated, how to query the database, how to manipulate the contents of the database, and how to use transactions with the database. Using Multiple Activities: Why you may wish to use


more than one activity to manage your application's user interface, how to add a second (or subsequent) activity to your application, how to launch other activities in your application, and how to integrate activities from the Android operating system (e.g., browser, map) into your application. Preferences and Files: How to store user preferences in


Android and where they reside on the device, how to collect user preferences from the user via the standard Android preference user interface, and the limitations on reading and writing files using standard Java file I/O operations. Rotation Events: What happens by default when the


user changes the screen orientation from portrait to landscape, how to maintain activity state when the orientation is changed, how to block orientation changes, and how to have the orientation change always be triggered by the accelerometer. Using HttpClient: How to access the Internet from your


Android application, how to call out to Web services using the HttpClient library, and how to parse XML or JSON data that the Web services might return. Creating Services: What roles services play in an


Android application, how to add a service to your application, and how to define what that service will do. Using Services: How to start or bind to a service, what the difference is between starting and binding to a service, and how to allow the service to asynchronously


update an activity based upon external actions (e.g., received email message). Remote Services: Why you might want to expose a service's API to other applications on the device, what


AIDL is and its role in remote services, how to convert a local service to one that supports remote access, and how to support listener objects across process boundaries. Notifications: How to display an icon in the status bar


(or play a sound, shake the phone, flash a light, etc.) to let the user know about something that has gone on in the background (e.g. received email message). Location Tracking: What sources of location data are


available in Android, how to request that Android notify you when the device moves, and how you and the user can collaborate to determine the best possible source of location data available based on user criteria. Maps: Options for integrating maps into an Android


application, how to integrate Google Maps into an activity's user interface, how to control what the map is displaying, and how to highlight points of interest on a map. Media: How to play back audio and video on an Android


device, what media formats are supported, and what limitations Android places on streaming media playback. Camera/Sensors: How to set up picture preview with


the camera, how to take a picture with the camera, how to find out what direction the device is pointing, and how to detect device movement in three dimensions. App Widgets: What an app widget is, how to define a


new app widget, and how to control what an app widget looks like on the user's home screen. Advanced App Widgets: How to control when the app


widget gets updated, how to launch activities from an app widget, how to collect configuration settings from the user for an app widget, and how to support multiple copies of an app widget for the same user. Testing: What JUnit is and how it is used outside of Android, how to run JUnit test suites in an Android emulator, how Android extended JUnit to support GUI testing, and the usage of the “test monkey” for simulating random user input.

28) Production Applications: How to digitally sign Android applications, how to prepare an application for distribution, how to upload an application to the Android Market, and how to distribute an Android application outside of the Android Market. 29) Making Money at Mobile: Recommendations on how to choose an application to build and how you should go about promoting it, and other business models to consider beyond selling individual applications to individual users. 30) Android Beyond Java: Other ways to create Android applications without using Java (e.g. HTML5), what the Native Development Kit is and why you would use it, and how to integrate scripting languages into an Android application. 31) Other Mobile Platforms: Comparison of application development on iPhone, Windows Phone, Blackberry, Symbian, WebOS, and Android.
