Choosing an Android developer

In the article on choosing an Android developer, we discussed several points that make developing for this platform special. Among them are fragmentation, multiple versions of the operating system and system API, and customization. All of these are routine problems, whose presence should not affect your decision to become an Android developer. To take them for granted, you should master the fundamental knowledge, of which I have compiled a list as much as possible.

It is important to understand that this is only the initial level of knowledge of Android development. You can go to a higher level only through experience and efforts in a long period of time. Much of the knowledge comes from contemporary articles and discussions. And sometimes it’s worth putting aside shyness and just asking colleagues for advice in order to save your time.

Our department has collected these sources of knowledge over the years of studying theory, which smoothly turned into practice.
