Want to develop Android apps? You need Android Studio—the only IDE fully supported by Google for Android app development. This course is fully revised for 2016, covering all the essential features in the latest iteration of Android Studio (v2.0) and critical resources such as the Java Development Kit and Intel HAXM. David Gassner introduces the Android Studio interface, helps you set up your environment, and provides handy shortcuts for writing and debugging code. He also shows how to monitor CPU and memory usage; use templates, breakpoints, and watch expressions; and add version control by integrating Android Studio with GitHub.

Topics include:

  • Installing Android Studio on Mac and Windows
  • Creating Android Studio projects
  • Setting up the development environment, including HAXM and the new Android emulator
  • Importing existing code into Android Studio projects
  • Exploring the interface, including the editor and project windows
  • Managing project builds and dependencies
  • Creating new Java classes
  • Refactoring code
  • Using templates
  • Using breakpoints and watch expressions
  • Updating apps with Instant Run
  • Using Git for version control
