Lucas, Pieter,

I've a number of years experience using Java, especially Java2D. A couple of questions:
What is the best way to "come at" Android's Java SDK?
Are you able to do Java2D type drawing with Android, or is it a different model?

Regards, Rupert

Hello Rupert,

Our book shows you both how to get started and advance to proficiency with Android SDK development following these steps:
1. Chapter 1 - Android Fundamentals: We introduce you to Android theory, the SDK and IDEs in a hands-on, practical fashion.
2. Chapter 2 - Development Tools in Practice: You learn to master the development tools of the trade with a practical application project that also serves as a how-to collection of Android programming techniques (logging, menus, toasts, notification, alerts, UI controls, files etc.) progressing all the way to creating a signed, Android Market ready, application package (APK).
3. Chapters 3 to 11: We present in-depth coverage of diverse code projects that serve to widen and deepen your understanding of the both the Android Platform and it's possible applications. This also covers drawing and animation techniques.

Best regards,
Pieter

This book is recommended by my peers and I think its a great start for beginners. "Hello, Android Introducing Google's Mobile Development Platform" Third Edition by Ed Burnette.

Cheers!
