    Hello everyone,
    So basically I have one problem that leads to several others. I want to start developing Android apps and games. Just that I am lost... I`m looking for tutorials for dummies, for people who have literally NO experience with either JAVA or Eclipse.
    I also have signed up for Android Inventor but have not recieved an invite and from what I have read so far its good only for making small and not very complex apps.
    I do have programming experience, none of it which I think is relevant right now and as I said I`m looking forward to develop my first game. A Worms like game that is. Next to learning how to code for Android , I`d also like to know if the game is 2D are there any required specs for graphics ? And does the SDK help with animations or they have to be developed separately with the static images?

    If you haven`t realised by now, i`m a complete n00b but really determined to come up with at least one working app.
    Thanks and hope I got the right forum section to post

    P.S. I understand there is a lot to know and learn before producing anything worth installing on a phone, but all I`m looking for is explanations and details for dummies :)

    Join meetup and find a local android developer group in your locale. The best thing to do is to learn from others. The SDK has some good tutorials and there are some good books out there.

    Learn Java before you even begin to learn about Android.
