Yesterday I stumbled upon an Android related online book named “Programming Android“. This book is published online while being under development and uses the Open Feedback Publishing System (OFPS). With that system, early readers can provide comments next to any paragraph while reading. It is essentially a nice way to provide direct feedback.
I just skimmed through the book, but only from that little time it was apparent that it is well written and it can definitely be a tool to your Android programming toolbox. The main author is Zigurd Mednieks and the book can be found in O’Reilly’s catalog here. Check it out.Related Whitepaper:
App Inventor is an easy and fun way for the uninitiated to learn about computer programming, and is at the same time a productive!
For most, the underlying technology that makes an app tick is shrouded in mystery. This has been a boon for programming experts and has spurned a very profitable niche for professional programmers who are paid to research, develop, and build these apps. But what if you have an idea for the next big thing – or even the next little thing for that matter? Well, now there is hope for non-programmers. Recently, thanks to a collaboration between Google and MIT, the world of mobile app creation has been opened to everyone with App Inventor!
