This course provides an overview of the tools used in the Android development process including the newly released Android Studio. The course provides step-by-step coverage of the tools installation process, their setup, and the respective roles of each. This course introduces the tools used in Android development from the perspective of someone with a .NET development background but is appropriate for anyone with software development experience who is interested in learning Android application development. Parallels are drawn between Visual Studio equivalent features where possible. In those cases where the Android tools have no Visual Studio equivalent, the reason for the tool’s need in the Android space is discussed.
