I must say that Android development does seem rather straight forward, or, at least, what I’ve seen so far. I’ve done many beginner courses, and busy going through a couple of the more intermediate and advanced courses, including a Lollipop dev course, and the way of coding is nice and concise, not a lot of guesswork involved. I’m even using Android Studio instead of the Eclipse ADT, but still getting used to the differences.
My next step is to code up a few native applications and get them onto the Google Play Store. Strangely enough, my biggest stumbling block so far has been to figure out under what name I want to release the apps. Hehe. Choosing a name is an important step!
And no, all of this learning I’m doing has nothing to do with my work-life, there is no reason I need to know these technologies for work, this is purely for self-enrichment. I love coding, and there is not a lot of opportunity where I am at the moment, to learn or implement new things like this, so I have to keep up with it in my own time.
