    • a review of the object-oriented programming paradigm: classes, interfaces, inheritance;
    • a complete Java syntax and instruction reference guide (excluding inner classes);
    • naming conventions (Sun conventions);
    • practical consequences of duck typing and static typing:
      • using factories,
    • application structure and compilation; loading classes, Classloaders and CLASSPATH. Packets, code organization.
    • IDE: using Eclipse
  2. Advanced Java topics
    • generic types;
    • handling exceptions;
    • inner classes;
    • overloading, autoboxing, wrappers;
    • class initialization, constructors, static and non-static initialization blocks;
    • enumeration;
    • annotations;
  3. Multithreaded programming:
    • basic concepts: Thread, Runnable;
    • blocking, synchronization;
    • an introduction to java.util.concurrent;
  4. The standard library:
    • collections in Java:
      • all collection interfaces,
      • common implementations,
      • algorithms;
    • input and output:
      • streams, readers/writers, decorators;
      • communicating via HTTP, URLs.

Programming for Android

  1. Necessary information about Android programming environment, compatibility issues between versions (API levels) and deploying/publishing of applications.
  2. Development kit configuration (device emulator and an actual device).
  3. The structure of an android application:
    • Activities, Intents, Services;
    • Content Provider;
    • Broadcast Receiver;
    • application context;
    • data: where and how to store which data;
  4. Creating UI:

    • Dynamic GUI rendering;
    • GUI as a static resource;
    • events and event handling;
    • options and context menu;
  5. Resources:
    • adding resource to an application;
    • drawable resources: density and resolution, scaling;
  6. Data handling
    • web services and HTTP;
    • parsing well-structured text, text-parsing API (for XML, JSON);
    • adapters (Adapter, AdapterView), GUI binding to data;
  7. Dynamic graphics – canvas:
    • SurfaceView, SurfaceHolder;
    • graphics, animations and multithreading.
  8. Using phone capabilities:

    • introduction to 3D graphics (OpenGL ES):
      • handling hardware, declarations in the manifest (including, e.g., texture compression);
      • fundamentals of 3D graphical processing: matrices, surfaces, vertices;
      • projection, scene, initial configuration;
      • shaders;
  12. System integration:
    • custom ContentProvier;
    • user notifications;
    • custom Services and Intents;

Audience and prerequisites

Previous Java programming experience is not required – the course begins with an intense training in Java programming, for which the only requirement is having some programming skills in any programming language.

Those who do not need a prep training in Java itself (syntax, fundamentals, most important parts of the standard library, programming conventions, using IDE, building applications) can, instead of buying the whole course, purchase only the Android part itself, that is, Android 101 and Android 201 trainings. These trainings constitute one four-day block.

Separate Android 101 and Android 201 trainings are also available.

Certificates

Course participants receive completion certificates signed by ALX.
