ANDROID DEVELOPMENT ROADMAP
The Android ecosystem is in a constant state of growth: Every day, new libraries and materials are introduced that are designed to accelerate development speed and make our lives as developers easier.
In this, you’ll learn all about the Android development ecosystem following our Android Developer Roadmap, giving you a more holistic view of the Android community and how you can progress as a developer.
The Android Developer Roadmap is designed to give you a comprehensive understanding of the current Android ecosystem and provides suggested learning paths along the way to help you grasp the concepts.
