Android for beginners-Part 1

Jelly Bean
This article marks for an inception of something new, something cool, something to brag about and something that makes you feel more tech savvy. Android started to come to the surface in 2008. Since then, billions of gadgets from thousands of companies have embedded it in their roots. And naturally, more developers, whether from a corporation or independent and trying their hands on it. So, we now begin

What is Android?

An operating system that is derived from java. Java is object-oriented, such that it’s workings mimic the real world objects. Programs have been made easy to comprehend, to create and to recreate due to this. Hence, derivatively, Android is easy to learn but difficult to master language whose only limitation, is your imagination and your tenacity. Okay now, enough with the emotional-motivational part.

A java program is needed to be compiled into a DEX file to be executed as an android one. I imagine that if you are reading this. you might understand how programming works exactly. You write thecode-> compile the code-> execute the code.

DEX

Dalvik executable. This executable file is mapped for efficient storage and memory mapped execution. Its history is not you should concern yourself with. This topic is about the future.

Below are the things you require before you go on to fondle with the android.

  • An IDE (Integrated Development Environment): This environment gives you developing tools, debugging tools(error removal) and an emulator to test your projects on. Use Android Studio, a free development IDE. Download using the given red colored link.
  • A JDK(Java development kit): Download and install it before downloading and installing the Android Studio. As I say, “Can’t do anything without a good java!”
  • A system with a minimum of 4gigs of RAM.
  • Windows 7/8/10. I am learning it on windows. So you get to do the same too.
  • An android powered tablet or phone with a minimum of Android 4.1 Jellybean.
  • Tenacity to learn

Accumulate these things and you are good to go. By the time we are done, you will be cooking android apps like instant noodles.

Nexus 5X price dropped by 7000

Google LG Nexus 5X, launched in October this year is already dropped its price like a desperate harlot by about 7000 Rs. in India.

The phone that is coming two variations and retailed for Rs.31990 for a 16 GB version and Rs.35990 for a 32 GB version, have dropped its price of the peak significantly. A Rs.7000 decrease in the 16 GB version and a Rs. 3500 drop in the 32 GB version. Consequently, the cost of the  16 GB and 32GB models are now are Rs.24990 and Rs.32439 respectively(some messed up there math here.).

When the phones were released in october, the pricing was defended by google along with the pricing of Nexus 6P with argument that they provide top tier experience. Come ON google! Don’t be assholes like those Apple guys! The plastic body phone maybe charming but the low spec sheets of the phones pummeled their prices down like a hammer barely a month after their release. And plastic is not seen as an chick magnet by some new users. So for the Nexus lovers, they are more likely to wait for Huawei nexus 6P. How do you spell Huawei again…?

Let’s now talk about Nexus 5X’s specs. It features 5.2 inches LCD screen with 1920×1080 display, 3.14 Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon(its a processor BTW!), 12.5 Megapixels camera and 5MP front camera and 2GB LDDR3 RAM. Sounds like a steel but it still can’t beat Nokia 1100

I wished the price had a little more dropped. With Micromax and other not-much-trusted companies are stepping up their game with cheaper phones with more features, Google really needs to step it up. and drop the price about ……….OVER 9000!
