Android Programming In Java: Starting with an App 3rd Ed (I/O Press)
Wednesday, 29 November 2017

This book not only shows you how common tasks are done in Android Studio, but also explains why they are done in a particular way. Mike James also shows how having done something once you can generalize the approach to components you haven’t previously encountered. Revised and updated for Android Studio 3, it covers the use of lambdas and new features of the ConstraintLayout.
