Would You Like To Learn How To Develop On Android?
As you are probably aware, there are a large number of guides on how to do virtually everything on your devices. 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. For this purpose, he has decided to start his own Google + help sessions to teach and educate everyone who wants to join in. Moreover, he has already started a thread in the EVO section where he has already placed some pointers and basic information to get people started.
This is just a fantastic way to help our community grow together and we strongly encourage you to join in the fun if you have ever wanted to dev, but didn’t know how to get started. Please leave some feedback for the dev.
I am here for one simple reason. To teach people how to develop on android correctly.
