Mobile Application Development

.CSC 212 - Mobile Application Development

Android Professor, Fair Use

The newest computer programming course at Parkland college is CSC 212 - Mobile Application Development taught by David Bock. I found this course to be a great way to get started with Android development. It contains a good mix of theory and hands-on programming. Some of the topics covered in this course included Android's: development environment, resource files, GUI design, event-handling, architecture, activity lifecycle, navigation, drawing, animation, sharing activity state, shared preferences, iconography, as well as styles and themes. This course is one of Parkland's online courses and requires a background in Java or object-oriented development (Prerequisites: CSC 125 or CSC 140).
