Class 1, Part 3. This video comes from Marakana's 5-Day Android Bootcamp Training Course that Marko Gargenta taught in San Jose, CA earlier this year.

In this 70-minute tutorial Marko will demonstate the main building blocks for Android application development by showing you the processes behind a real world Android app.

Through breaking down a twitter-like application, this tutorial will shed some light on:

  • Activities: what they do, and what the activity lifecycle looks like in Android
  • Intents
  • Services, and the service lifecycle
  • Content Providers: sharing content between applications
  • Broadcast Receivers
