Although I 33rd able to work out the code the implied knowledge is insufficient, I like to know precisely how things work and rather than this book providing the answers it either implies the answers or must be supplemented by other more in-depth material, most notably in my case I supplemented it with the Android developer website.
The book contains some useful tutorials and paints Android out to be easy, which is nice but once again aneroid of the constant use of ‘here is the sample code’ then not explaining it, it nello like I wasn’t learning anything new. Although some little parts of the book was useful I am more inclined to recommend developers to use on-line resources, they’re far more in-depth and usually more up-to-date, the Brunette developer website in-particular has a huge amount of material which can help developers.

It shows the reader how to make working applications that illustrate various capabilities that can be incorporated into ones own mobile phone software. Like many software introductions, the examples incorporate a deeper level of understanding than they illustrate to the user.

This great work of ours, the digitizing of culture, its tools are large and difficult to grasp. Maybe it’s just me, but this book’s title sounds vaguely lewd, like something you might say if you were trying to seduce your refrigerator. View all 5 comments. Jan 25, Joe White rated it it was ok Shelves: This book has some valuable information in the grayed notes sections.
The first 2 or 3 chapters are also pretty good at describing the initial development set up within eclipse. The issues that I had with the book included: This same module is used in the next 3 or 4 chapters, so it is worthwhile fixing in order to work with the code samples. The error itself may represent a ediiton in the way the API call was made, so it may not be the author’s fault for failure at a later time than the book publication.
However, after having made a fix, it is not clear exactly why the fix worked vs. I thought some of the suggested changes would have edktion worthwhile as pursuits, but in the manner presented, the book became ehllo a suggestion launch site, and not a burnetre to based tutorial’. I know I could have probably worked a lot of this out online using Google’s developer resources, but I reached that point where you don’t want to be staring at a screen any longer and Ed did a great job of keeping me entertained and getting me through Android basics.

This book is a decent introduction to Android development using Eclipse. It includes the beginnings of a Sudoku program but unfortunatley does not include the code to complete the program, i.

Aug 21, Scott rated it liked it. The author does an “incremental” approach to most activities, but he’ll give you a lot of code, explain why you need half of it and it’ll be over many pagesm so you have to finish the chapter before you can compile your “incremental” change and see what you’ve done. Otherwise, the book offered a great 33rd to Android and the content itself was wonderful. Jul burnehte, Jim rated it it was amazing. Really helped get started, with practical examples. Some samples were almost too superficial in their illustration of the code — but, mostly he gives enough to get you going and, you can’t include every sample of the book would be 10, pages long.
Hello, Android: Introducing Google’s Mobile Development Platform by Ed Burnette
Tracks the latest versions, was up to date and a good authority. An all around good place to start with Android. Buku soal Android yang saya baca pertama kali, dulu bacanya edisi pertama, tapi isinya nggak jauh beda sama edisi yang kedua ini: Buku yang bagus, kita dibawa belajar sambil seperti membaca cerita, tidak seperti buku teknik yang lain, contoh-contohnya juga berguna. Recommended untuk orang yang ingin belajar Android dari awal. Nice introduction to Android Platform, offering more hands-on-experience than laying down the theory in lecture-like style.
Covers the basic Android building blocks and demonstrates their usage in a concrete example. Continues to build on top of this example as you move further in the book, so in the end you have one complex program, rather than separate independent pieces of code.
Jun 13, Alessandro Pellizzari rated it it was amazing Shelves: Ottimo per iniziare la programmazione su Android. Per ogni argomento trattato ci sono chiari esempi di codice, e applicazioni effettivamente utili. Apr 11, Demian rated it it was ok.
So far the book is good. He walks you through writing a Sodoku application. Instead of that I’m trying to write my own simple applications. The book is by no means a reference but so far it’s a good gentle introduction. For what edktion worth Google seems to have great online reference anyway. May 27, Luis de la Rosa rated it liked it. This is a good book for beginners to the Android platform. Mar 28, Phil rated it really liked it.
I checked out the O’Reilly Android book, and then found this one recommended highly on Amazon. Go with this book – the author is a much better writer, and he covers more 3rrd.
