The last chapter provided an overview of Android’s history and hinted at concepts that will be covered in the rest of the book. At this point, you’re probably eager to get your hands on some code. We’ll start by showing you what you need to begin building applications with the Android software development kit (SDK) and help you set up your development environment. Next, we’ll step you through a “Hello World!” application and dissect a slightly larger application after that. Then we’ll explain the Android application lifecycle and end with a discussion about debugging your applications with Android Virtual Devices (AVDs).
