I Need Android Development Simplified Textbooks For Beginners by Loris576(m): 5:42am On Jun 13, 2020
Hello everyone
I just got selected for google scholarship on android development some days back.
I need pdf textbooks to start learning
I have not ventured into any programming language apart from qbasic and visual basic.
If you can help me with a good and simplified pdf that will teach me the basics. I will appreciate.
Thank you

Hmmm! Your case is very strong o. You applied for a scholarship when you don't know Java or kotlin? There is no textbook I will recommend that will help you when you do not have basic knowledge of Java or kotlin. You will find it difficult to understand android development if you don't understand how OOP, multithreading, collections, and interface work.

Anyway, I will list some books that will help you in Java and Android at the same time but those books are old still relevant though. Check out the screenshot below.

Get the following books: Head First Java, Java : the complete reference, Effective Java.

For Android development : Head First Android Development, Android programming Big Nerd Ranch 4th(in kotlin) while 3rd (in Java). These books will broaden your horizon on Java and Android development, however to be pro you start building apps.

Can you tell me how Google scholarship for Africa work?

Does the scholarship come with job promise?

Well, before you "be" (meaning jump) into learning Java if you had done any research at all about what you just got yourself into you should know by now Kotlin is the official Android language.

Android is Google's so definitely the course will be in Kotlin. Brace up!!!

PS. You can follow this link and "play" with the Kotlin Bootcamp. Made by Google Devs, so enjoy cheesy
Best!

It's better you learn java first. Download sololearn and check their java course.

Fine fine fine. Good to all replies. I also apply for the mobile web. Google knew you are either a beginner or junior dev. Either way, they will help you from a bit of scratch. Sure, kotlin will be use for Android.

Your scratch knowledge is not bad. Just like other said and you also suggested, pick up a kotlin eBook, read up some important problem solving algorithm and study for a quick pace with the Google internship.
