Friend has asked, what resources do I use to learn about Android development, so I decided to put it up for public discussion.
Fist of all, developers.android.com is awesome. Although I’m the kind of guy, who would learn Java from Java API and would had his own headache, I want to emphasize that the Android’s website is just amazing. Not only it contains plenty of examples and articles on different aspects of OS and SDK, but it also updated frequently. Also, my humble advice is to check ApiDemo applications in every new SDK.
Second place to look at for me is Stack Overflow (or just Google and you will end up at SO anyway).
There are some good books on the Android:
- Hello, Android
- Professional Android Applications Development, by Reto Meier
Android Developer Relations Tech Lead at Google
- Pro Android
