Android tutorials for the absolute beginner
« on: October 06, 2011, 12:31:20 am »
A classmate of mine with whom I am working on a project has decided to learn Android programming. Unfortunately, he's in over his head and didn't really know where to begin, to he asked me for help. Does anyone know of any good resources for an absolute beginner to programming for Android devices?

Well I'm pretty sure Android is Java based. So learning that would be a start.

Well, they supposedly have experience with Java, but they've been unable to understand Android.

Google has a wonderful solution for this, doesn't require any programming language and is easy to pick up.
If you understand the basics of this, getting into the programming part will be easy:

Edit: Requires you to set up your pc first, instructions found at http://www.appinventorbeta.com/learn/setup/
