One Stop Guide Shop for the Newbie and Dev

It’s been well established that XDA-Developers  is the destination for resources relating to technology and development. With the Forums, the Wiki, XDA-University, and XDA-Developer TV; anyone regardless of skill level can visit XDA and learn and partake in development. So it is great to see an extensive compilation of guides from the XDA forums for the newbie and the dev, in one place for your availability and convenience.

Compiled by XDA Recognized Contributor adityalahiri13, the collection of 73 guides ranges from very simple activities such as flashing ROMs and kernels all the way up to compiling from source, theming, and porting features and functions. The guides are conveniently categorized according to the category of development they focus on, such as theming, compiling, and APKs, and numerically labelled for ease of navigation.

The compilation includes excellent guides previously covered on the Portal such as XDA Recognized Contributor sandy7‘s guide on how to port Sony Small Apps to any device, building your own kernel from source by Senior Member thewadegeek, and Senior Member HJ200‘s guide on how ‘3D-fying’ your apps.

This compilation of guides is a very bookmarkable page that anyone who is keen on learning development should have as a reference in their browser. It is also a reminder of the helpfulness of the community. Of course, all credit for the guides goes towards their respective authors.

If you would like to check this out, be sure to visit the original thread.
