Hi,

Can I become a Java Developer and an Android Developer at the same time?

Thanks

There can be only one! Oh wait... that's a movie.

Short answer: of course -- in fact, since Android apps are written in Java, you can't be an Android developer without being a Java developer.


Longer answer: you're never just one type of developer -- at least not if you want to be a good one. And, before diving off into Android, I'd advise getting a good grounding in Java. Otherwise, you're going to get in over your head very quickly.

Yes you can not learn two technologies at a time

Java is a big technology containing many frameworks, it would be difficult you to understand both technology at a time.

If you get basic knowledge of Java then you can try but without knowing Java it is like "A baby boy born in Hell"

Well,

2 years back i had the same question when i started out

I guess you should learn core java from books like head first java or apress publications and then read a book called android for java developers.

If you directly dive into android, you'll be baffled as soon as you reach beyond hello world examples...

 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
