2nd Track Announced: Android Study Jam!

Build Your First Android App in Kotlin with Kevin Moore

What you'll learn:

  1. How to use Android Studio to build your app.
  2. How to run your app on a device or in the emulator.
  3. How to add interactive buttons.
  4. How to display a second screen when a button is pressed.

Please be informed that this track has some pre-requisites that you MUST complete before the study jam begins.

What you must know already

This codelab is written for programmers and assumes that you know either the Java or Kotlin programming language. If you are an experienced programmer and adept at reading code, you will likely be able to follow this codelab, even if you don't have much experience with Kotlin.

To work through this, you will need a computer that can run Android Studio 3.6 or higher (or already has Android Studio 3.6 or higher installed).

The installation is similar for all platforms. Any differences are noted below.

  • Navigate to the Android Studio download page and follow the instructions to download and install Android Studio.
  • Accept the default configurations for all steps, and ensure that all components are selected for installation.
  • After the install is complete, the setup wizard downloads and installs additional components, including the Android SDK. Be patient, because this process might take some time, depending on your internet speed.
  • When the installation completes, Android Studio starts, and you are ready to create your first project.
