Hello explorers, I am Sanjay, Android developer. In this article I will guide you through the process of becoming an Android Developer in 2020.

Please read it fully, so you can utilize my post.

Below is the roadmap for Android Development

😅 Please forgive me… I am not good at designing.

Roadmap

Ability to read documentation is a crucial skill. Documentation

Let me share some resources to get you started.

Pick any language (Kotlin / Java)

I recommend Kotlin, if you want to start Android quickly.
Otherwise take Java, learn basic concepts like OOP, Threading, etc…
Kotlin:- Resources to learn
Java:- Videos to learn

Please take at least 3 months to learn new language. It looks like long, but worth it.

Android Studio

Make sure your pc meets the requirements
Get familiarized with the IDE and the project structure

Core fundamentals
