Hi Dawn and David.
Thank you for releasing such a book. It looks very interesting from the index.

I'm wondering though, what the differences are when compared with the previous version.
It would be great if you can provide a  high level diff of the changes.

Kind regards and thanks,
- Cosimo

Kotlin is one of the changes, and the third edition covered the latest features of Android Jetpack, including Jetpack Compose.

Hello Cosimo,

Yes, Randy is exactly right. It has been re-written for Kotlin and the new APIs.

D+D

Hi.
Thanks for the reply.
Do you also cover the "legacy" way of doing certain things or not?

Cheers,
- Cosimo

Hello Cosimo,

Yes it does. In the early chapters it still goes through layouts and fragments, because they are important for understanding the underpinnings of Android development, and for maintaining existing applications.
