Learn Android development and make your first Android app! We will be introducing Kotlin, Android's new programming language and showing you how to use the latest tools released during this year's Google I/O which make it easier than ever to quickly build stable, high performance Android apps.
We will explore Android OS, the Android application file structure and how to write your first Android application. We will also play with basic design layouts via XML and how to handle user events.
