Your First Android Application

About the Book

With the recent proliferation of apps I felt that there was a need for a book to teach the average

Jane how to develop their own apps. The web has been with us for a while now and

many of the technologies and terminologies are familiar to us. We are familiar with

what a webpage is, what a link is, what a browser is etc. Building on this familiarity, my

aim is to show that with relative ease anyone can start developing their own app.
