Software training firm Infinite Skills Inc. this week introduced its “Android App Creation with C# Tutorial,” a beginner-level course offering specialized training in using the Mono cross-platform developer framework, which allows programmers to use C# to create apps for the Android mobile operating system.
Android shares domination of the mobile operating system market with iOS, and currently holds the lead in sales. While many app development usually occurs through Java, the Mono cross-platform framework allows programmers to use C# to create Android apps.
Infinite Skills “Android App Creation with C# Tutorial” explores some fundamental tools and techniques for working with Mono and C# by guiding users through the creation of a basic social networking app.
Course author Keith Welch has spent more than 30 years working in the software industry, with 10 years working in .NET technologies, and the last 10 years focusing on mobile development. His many proficiencies include Android, Windows Mobile, ASP.NET, and more. Welch currently specializes in mobile developer tools, development consulting, and app development.
Welch organizes the course around the creation of a social networking app, starting with building a user interface by working with views and layouts. The course then moves into interface widgets, where Welch explains how to create text and edit views, buttons, checkboxes, and more interface elements.
He then explains working with services, working with data, and how to include social network elements such as contacts and photo sharing.
The course closes with chapters on including messaging services in the app, and how to sync with a server to retrieve and upload photos.
“In the process of building the app, we’ll see a lot of features of the Android operating system,” Welch explains. “We’ll get comfortable with the programming environment that mono provides in visual studio.”
