Master the skills to build data-centric Android applications
Go beyond just code by challenging yourself to think about practical use-cases with SQLite and others
Focus on flushing out high level design concepts, before drilling down into different code examples
Android Database Programming
We live in an increasingly data-centric and data-driven world. On top of that we live in a very mobile-centric world with the rise of Android smart phones and tablet devices and the surge in demand for the Android platform. Along with the demand for more data, there is a demand for efficient, “snappy” applications, and so developers need to have a strong understanding of when different data storage methods are appropriate and when they are not.
Android Database Programming is designed to help developers create and design data-centric mobile applications on Google’s Android platform. As the world goes increasingly mobile and as consumers’ demand for data-centric applications rises, knowing how to combine the two effectively will become an increasingly important asset to have as a developer. The book starts by looking at the various local data storage methods on Android, and finishes off by examining external databases and ways you can utilize them from within an Android application.
