Would You Like To Learn How To Develop On Android?

You can do anything by simply following written instructions and trying to understand what you are doing. However, due to the simplification of several tools, there are things and knowledge that gets lost due to this so called simplicity. In order not to let it die, XDA Recognized Developer lithid-cm has decided to take it upon himself to educate the masses on the hidden arts of Android development.
