Developing Android Applications with Java, Part 2
Building a Twitter App
Publisher: O'Reilly Media
Final Release Date: April 2010
Run time: 9 hours 36 minutes

Learn to build mobile applications for the exciting new Android platform. When you purchase this product, you'll get access to the videos, slide presentations, and code examples associated with the online course, Developing Android Applications with Java, Part 2. As you learn, you will build a Twitter app from start to finish.

You can never have too many Twitter clients, as the market has already proven. We'll use a very comprehensive and useful library called twitter4j to do the heavy lifting for us, but there will be plenty of lifting left to do. We'll walk you through setting up sign ins, creating a public timeline, making sure your app is responsive and giving it style to stand out from the flock. Finally, for those times when 140 characters isn't enough, you'll extend your Twitter client to also post photos to the popular Twitpic image service.

    Comments about O'Reilly Media Developing Android Applications with Java, Part 2:

    After watching the class I purchased a companion book (Professional Android 2 Application Development) so I could have something physical to look through when I had to reference something.

    Turns out the video class is more valuable than the book. Tony covers a lot of in depth topics the book either skips or only brushes. One example is positioning of elements in a RelativeView. I haven't seen a book cover this well at all and the video did a great job of getting your feet wet and showing a very good example.

    I would highly suggest this and the previous video series for anyone looking to start programming on Android.
