Open Source App Teaches You Android in Android

Here at XDA, we are first and foremost focused on development. Without the developers, there would be no reason to have a site. Because of this, it is great when we find those looking to give back to the community and help teach others. XDA Elite Recognized Developer AdamOutler has done a great job spearheading the numerous articles and XDA TV videos on Android Development, and others have been great contributors to that series.

XDA Senior Member SferaDev has taken a slightly different approach to helping teach Android Development by changing the medium. Instead of utilizing a walkthrough on a computer or video, he has decided to teach about Android in Android, with a project he is calling “Learn Android in Android” or LAIA.

LAIA is an Android app that teaches you the basics of Android development in the palm of your hand (or tablet). Now, you can be riding the subway or bus or in that annoying carpool to work, and use the time to be productive by reading through the simple tutorial SferaDev has put together. And to make it even more of a big deal, he has open-sourced the application, allowing anyone to contribute or fork it and make something different. The application is still in its infancy, but it is continually evolving as SferaDev adds more chapters to the application. Visit the original thread for more information and offer help where you can, because you never know where the next top developer might be.
