Running list of books.

Postby jonbonazza » Wed Jul 21, 2010 8:56 pm

Since I couldn't find anything like this, I thought I would start one.

If you come across any good books on the Android SDK, then please post them here. Try to stick to a similar format on every post.

I will start.


Title: Android Wireless Application Development
Author(s): Shane Conder / Lauren Darcey
Publisher: Addison Wesley
Page Count: 552 + index
Copyright Date: 2010
Website: http://informit.com/
Content provided on disk? Yes
Content provided on web? Yes
Review:
Requires a basic knowledge of the Java programming language and some knowledge of the Java JDK is recommended, but not required. This book is an excellent resource for learning your way around the android SDK. Shane and Lauren touch on all of the basics, plus some intermediate, as well as advanced topics. code snippets are provided where relevant (which is very, very often), however they are just snippets, not entire source codes. The entire source for the examples discussed in the book are available, however, either on the CD-ROM provided with the book--provided you bought a physical copy and not a digital copy--as well as on their website. This was a good decision to reduce page count. The only complaint I have about the book is the number of spelling/grammar mistakes that seem to pop up quite frequently... If you can get around those, then this book is perfect for just about anyone, whether you're a nervouse newbie just now dipping your feet in, or a bonafide veteran, who has been treading the rapids for a while now.

Title: Hello, Android Third Edition, for Android 2
Author(s): Ed Burnette
Publisher: Pragmatic Bookshelf
Page Count: 320
Copyright Date: 2010
Website: pragprog.com
Content provided on disk? Yes
Content provided on web? Yes
Review (taken from Amazon because I am no word-smith):
Within minutes, Hello, Android will get you started creating your first working application: Android's version of "Hello, World." From there, you'll build up a more substantial example: an Android Sudoku game. By gradually adding features to the game, you'll learn the basics of Android programming. You'll also see how to build in audio and video support, add graphics using 2D and 3D OpenGL, network with web pages and web services, and store data with SQLite. You'll also learn how to publish your applications to the Android Market.

It’s hard to find knowledgeable people on this topic, but you sound like you know what you’re talking about!

Hi, i'm digiw0rx from the AndEngine forum! :)

for those of you struggling, trying to buy these eBooks etc from Amazon, i'd like to introduce you to a website where you can earn points and essentially buy these books for free!
Points2shop

By filling out some surveys and doing a few offers, you can earn enough points in no time to purchase these books!

Here's the proof it works.

It is good that Google has taken Android and made it open source so that we might get free books to read and learn.
