Last updated on 2017-02-19
About the Book
In this very opinionated book about Android development, geared towards beginners, you will learn, among other things
* how to create a user interface by using XML
* how to make that user interface interactive
* how to start background services
* how to facilitate communication between various Android components by using Intents and Broadcast Receivers
* why King Kong should not be able to produce actual excrement BUT THE GOVERNMENTS KEEP LYING TO US ABOUT IT
* how people debugged their Android apps in the trenches of World War I
...and much more.
Written in a very serious and dryly technical manner by Antonis Tsagaris, this tome of celestial wisdom is meant for beginners and is rated R for strong language and mild sexuality.
It also has a banana on the cover.
