Video Description

Are you an Android developer with some experience under your belt? Are you wondering how the experts create efficient and good-looking apps? With this video, your wait is over! We will teach you about different Android development patterns that will enable you to write clean code and make your app stand out from the crowd.

Patterns provide a logical and elegant approach to solving many of the development problems that coders face. These patterns act as a guide, creating a clear path from problem to solution, and although applying a design pattern does not guarantee best practice in itself, it will hugely assist the process and make the discovery of design flaws far easier.

The course starts by introducing the Android development environment and exploring its support libraries. You will gradually explore the different design and layout patterns and get to know best practices for how to use them together. Then you’ll develop an application that will help you grasp activities, services, and broadcasts and their roles in Android development.

Style and approach

This course takes a step-by-step approach; the steps are explained using real-world, practical examples. Each section uses case studies where we show you how using design patterns will help your development process.
