Hi all. My name is Jon and I have taken an interest in developing android apps for my phone. I have a Samsung Galaxy s3 which I love alot. I made it a mission to learn how to app dev while I am off work for the winter. My progress so far is not all that much but I am inching in the right direction. I started off downloading The Android SDK and eclipse. Ran through a Couple of lessons from their site. Basically if you're not familiar with it , well I made a textbox and a button. Once the button is pushed , a new window will open displaying my text a lot larger. Ya , that's it , but hey I'm learning. I was also impressed that I connected my phone to eclipse and i can run the program like that. I also taught myself to root my phone. And I downloaded an app on my phone so I can dev on the go. Basically I want to become serious and proficient in android app dev. I know enough about computers to get by like assembly them and i can set up a basic web server/site but programming and code are fairly new to me. I used to program in basic like 20 years ago?!?!? Yeah. Had a couple of questions too. Is the tutorial lessons on the android forum the best way to go for beginners because I feel like its all over the place. For example I built the same app twice from scratch using this tutorial just to get familiar and I still don't know what Language I am writing code in. I suspect java and xml if xml is even a language? Not sure. Well , that should explain what level I am at. I was hoping that being part of a community would greatly shorten the learning curve , so I look forward to doing a lot of reading and writing here. Thanks for reading.
