Android OS has the largest installation base of any operating system in the world. In this course we will learn the skills it takes to build robust, maintainable Android applications. We will focus on architecture and design concepts that make decision making easy, allowing us to focus on developing features while not getting bogged down in broken code or too much up-front planning. We’ll learn that, with the right understanding and preparation, the process of Android application development can be as rewarding as using and sharing the applications we develop. This course provides the foundational constructs, processes, and tools that are needed to write stable, full–featured, and maintainable Android applications. We cover architectural concepts for the UI layer, which is often the easiest part of the application to lose control of, and explore the overall application architecture. You will start by building a UI for a personal project management application, organized into an MVP architecture. You will then leverage Google’s LiveData and ViewModel to handle Activity lifecycle concerns while also implementing RxJava to make the UI layer completely reactive. Next, you will explore Bob Martin’s Clean Architecture and learn how to begin thinking about the application in terms of layers of functionality: from the business domain, through use cases, and finally to the strap-on user interface. Lastly, you will integrate your app with a RESTful API to back up your data in the cloud.

Kotlin greatly reduces source code verbosity. With Google having announced its support for Kotlin as a first-class language for writing Android apps, now's the time to learn how to create apps from scratch with Kotlin The Applied Kotlin for Android Application Development course is for developers who have some experience in the basics of Kotlin and are ready to take the plunge into the more advanced stage. This course covers Kotlin's superpowers, as it were. You should already know the syntax, but now we will go over the things that make Kotlin stand out—such as inline functions and null safety.You will learn about Anko, a Kotlin library which makes Android application development faster and easier. It makes your code clean and easy to read and smoothes out the rough edges in the Android SDK for Java. You will also publish the app you built during the course to get an overall end-to-end experience of Kotlin Android application development. By the end of this course, you will have gained experience in creating and deploying Android applications using Kotlin.

Programming Android apps can be a complex process and lack of knowledge in architecting your app can result in spaghetti code and dead ends. In order to deliver an extendable, maintainable, and testable code base, you have to think about the architecture of your application from the very first stage of your development. In this course, you’ll take an existing Android application build in Java and modernize it using the Kotlin language, seeing the importance of planning the architecture using SOLID principles and common Android Architecture using the MVP, MVC, and MVVM patterns. Moving on, you’ll implement Life Cycle Aware Components, use the viewmodel LiveData framework, and perform data management and persistence with the Room persistence solution. You’ll see how Kotlin efficiently accelerates the development by improving the code base. With the advanced Architectural Components, you’ll not only be able to improve the performance but also enhance the UI of your application to a whole new level. By the end of this course, you’ll have modernized your Android app using all the new features from coding it in Kotlin to implementing Architecture Components to enhancing the UI of your app, which gives you more control on your app and makes it easy to maintain.
