Need for oriëntation:

Dear Sir, Madam,

On page 3 of Programming Android (ISBN 978-1-449-38969-7) is written:

"Descriptions and updated links are posted on this book's website".

Question 1:
Where can I find these Descriptions and Updated Links ?

Question 2:

I've got the book as an gift for my birthday some years ago.
How is this book related to the present Android Studio 2.3.2 software that a friend downloaded for me from Internet ?

I have also access to the CodeAcademy on Internet.

Question 3:

In the book is written that I need Android SDK, JDK and IDE.

Is Android Studio 2.3.2 and the Code Academy enough for me to use the book fruitfully ?

I'm a little embarrased (As a pensionated scientist I have a lot of experience in Fortran-programming en in SAS-programming. I would like to program App's for the mobile phone, this is the background of my questions).

Thank you for an answer.

Best Regards,

Rob Waaijers

    Hi Rob,
    This book is now out of print, so I don't believe that there will be any updates to the links in it, but the example code can be downloaded here, if you don't already have it:  http://examples.oreilly.com/0636920010364/
    Android 2.3.2 *should* work for the lessons in the book, but if they do not please drop us a line to booktech@oreilly.com and we can see about assisting you with the problems you're having. If we can't assist, we can contact the author who may be able to offer some guidance to you.

    Cheers

  • Hello Tai,

    The problem is: I'm learning Android Programming by the Android Studio on Internet,
    but I do not recognize the programming language as written in the book.

    How can I make a link between the examples in the book and Android Studio ?

    The same for learning by the CodeAcademy on Internet: what is the relation with the book ?

    Maybe the book has become useless ?

    Please, help me with these questions.

    Best regards,

    Rob Waaijers

    Hi Rob,
    I am not familiar with the code academy or android studio, so I can't speak as to how the book is related to the content there. If they aren't mentioned specifically in the book then we unfortunately can't help you with that content, as it's outside the scope of the book. I've added the second edition of this title to your oreilly.com account at no charge and sent you download links to it as well. Since the first edition is out of print the examples may not work any longer, but the 2nd edition still is in print, so it may be of more use to you. If you have questions about the book's content,  you can always drop us a line to booktech@oreilly.com or reach out to one of the authors directly, who has his contact information here: http://www.oreilly.com/pub/au/3685

    Cheers
