We'll start here with finishing up the Android lifecycle before looking at the IDE we'll be using: Android Studio

We will make sure to touch on:

  • Creating a new project
  • Parts of the project
  • Basics of UI
  • Android Device Monitor
  • Connecting to GitHub
  • SDK Manager
  • Virtual Device Management
  • HAXM
  • Gradle
  • Project Listing vs. File Listing

We'll put together a very simple application to see how to get going. We'll also talk a bit about signing your apps (hopefully).

  • Doing onClick in XML
  • Connecting UI parts to code

In going through this app, we'll start talking about what makes up an Android app.
