LearnNow Online
Updated Oct 24, 2018

Course description

The Advanced Android Development using Eclipse course will take a deeper look into developing applications for the Android OS. The course will start with Network sockets in general and then move to the Android Server sockets and Multithreaded Network Sockets. From there the course will address the Android web server. From networking the course will then move to accessing the SD memory card and how the Android contacts database works.

Each LearnNowOnline training course is made up of Modules (typically an hour in length). Within each module there are Topics (typically 15-30 minutes each) and Subtopics (typically 2-5 minutes each). There is a Post Exam for each Module that must be passed with a score of 70% or higher to successfully and fully complete the course.


This course assumes you have a basic understanding of how to use Eclipse and write Java code.
