Since its unveiling in 2007, Google’s Android operating system has taken the tech world by storm. In 2011, Android became the largest OS for mobile devices and since 2013, smartphones and tablets that run Android have outsold those running Windows, iOS, and Mac OS combined. Open source and boasting over 1 million apps and 1 billion regular users, the appeal of becoming an Android developer is obvious. But where to start?
Android apps are normally developed using the Java programming language and with the use of the Android Software Development Kit (Android SDK). Here is a list of websites that can help you learn how to programme for Android devices.
