Useful Resources for Learning Android Development
- Sun/Oracle Javese Tutorial This explains the object oriented ideas of Java well.
- Learn Java for Android Development, by Jeff Friesen A helpful book.
Eclipse Integrated Development Environment (IDE)
Eclipse is an open source IDE that can be used with a variety of languages. It is written in Java, and so is very cross platform. It is especially good for Java and Android development.
- Video tutorials for Java programming in Eclipse This is a great set of video tutorials for absolute beginners, by Mark Dexter. It is an easy way to learn bothe Java and Eclipse. I found these very helpful to get up and going with Java.
- Android Development with Eclipse, by Onur Cinar This book assumes a little more experience than the above set of tutorials, but is specicically for Android, and shows how to use Eclipse nicely with the Android Development Tools.
- This is a very basic set of 25 tutorials by Level Up Tuts.
- These tutorials by Derek Banas were very helpful to me.
- The New Boston Tutorials There are 200 five to ten minute tutorials. These helped me quite a bit. I wish they had the source code to look at. I found that looking at source code in eclipse is much easier to understand what is going on, because you can hover over methods and read the documentation on them.
- Google's Videos These are from developer conferences, and are generally for more advanced users.
- Android Bootcamp 2012 Tutorial This series of 29 approximately 30 minute tutorials came from the Android Bootcamp.
- Jonathan Engelsma has a nice little set of Android tutorials here. These tutorials are a good way to get the basics of android programming in a quick way. They assume some Java experience, but they highlight features of the android platform well. I found them very useful.
Specialized topics for Android Apps
DCC 2013 Specific Notes
- Great Circle Centered on KL7NA You can make your own using python and matplotlib.
- Hamlib rotctld manual pages.

Other Android Tutorials and Resources
- I removed a link to "Best Resources for Android Developers" from anysoftwaretools.com at their request. The reason is that Google thought this link was an "unnatural link" which means they will put that link further down in the search results on Google. It has 47 other resources for Android developers, and I still recommend it. Unfortunately, you will need to "google it" yourself. I'm sorry.
