What will you learn from this book?
If you have an idea for a killer Android app, this fully revised and updated edition will get you up and running in a jiffy. You'll go beyond syntax and how-to manuals and learn how to think like a great Android developer. This hands-on book teaches you everything from designing user interfaces to building multi-screen apps that persist data in a database. It covers the latest features of Android Jetpack, including Jetpack Compose. It's like having an experienced Android developer sitting right next to you! If you have some Kotlin know-how, you're ready to get started.

What's so special about this book?
If you've read a Head First book, you know what to expect: a visually rich format designed for the way your brain works. If you haven't, you're in for a treat. With this book, you'll learn Git through a multisensory experience that engages your mind rather than a text-heavy approach that puts you to sleep.
