Android Application Development - The Android UI

Class 1, Part 4. 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 2-hour tutorial Marko will build an Android app from scratch in-order to illustrate some of the key concepts for Android UI development.

By the end of this tutorial you should have a solid foundation for beginning to work with the Android UI, as well as some best practices for UI development.

Marko also covers:

  • Two approaches to Android UI development: Declarative and Procedural
  • Views and layouts
  • Common view properties
  • Units in Android
  • Lifecycle of Activities and the Android UI

You can find all of the videos from the Android Bootcamp Screencast Series here.
