Hello folks,

I would like to know what are the opportunities in Android development market...... especially in India.

I am a J2EE professional with about 2 years of experience. I have worked on Web Apps projects and not any telecom domain project...
Does Android development require hardware knowledge?

Thanks,
Nikesh

The more complex of an application you are trying to build, the more likely it is you will need to understand the limits of the hardware. For simpler stuff, though, you do not need to worry about hardware.

Thanks Mark,

Is it having same Linux kernel that runs on Desktops and Servers?

If not, means beginners have to learn new kernel structure and file system for Mobile development?

Generally, yes.

If not, means beginners have to learn new kernel structure and file system for Mobile development?


At the SDK level, beginners neither know nor care that Android runs on Linux, BSD, Windows, or stale bread. Beginners working on the firmware may care, and they can get details on what they need to know by the resources at the Android open source project.

Hi Nikes,

You don't have to worry much about the hardware stuff and also the linux part of the Android.
As developer's we will be mostly concentrating in developing applications and dealing with all the API provided
by Android.
If we find we can add something/ a bug then we can post it in the Google Android Develor Forum.

Now with all these good books avaliable around will make learning more intersting and easy!!!


Regards,
Darshan.

One thing to keep in mind is that Google currently does not allow paid applications to be sold by developers in India - though it will be added eventually. So if you are looking on capitalising your android skills, you might need to wait a bit
