For an android developer, it is essential that he possesses some technical skills without which development is not possible. First things first: the technical skills. Android apps can be developed on either of the platforms like Mac, Windows PC, or Linux computer. Developers must be well versed with the following:
- Java– is the most essential aspect of Android development is the programming language Java. You must be comfortable with this programming language and all the related concepts such as loops, functions, variables, etc. in order to become a qualified android developer.
- SQL– knowing the basics of SQL is also essential as you will require databases for storage when you are developing Android apps. Without knowing SQL queries you can’t send and retrieve information to the database embedded with the android application.
- Android Software Development Kit (SDK) and Android Studio– it is one of the major skills that you will require. The best part about this is that is free of cost tool-kit that doesn’t require license subscription. It can be easily downloaded and similarly Android Studio can also be downloaded that is the officially integrated development environment (IDE) for Android app development. The Android SDK is the building block of android development as it includes sample code, handy coding tools, software libraries and other essential kits to used in building, test, and debug Android applications.
- XML– developers must also be aware of the use of XML to describe data. It is essential to design user-friendly interfaces for the applications there one must know the basic prospects of the language.
