Hi Joel,

What would you say is biggest challenge is in learning to develop Android apps for a programmer coming from a Java web dev background?

Thanks,
Paul

Hi Paul,

I'd say getting used to the lifecycle of an Android activity (screen), handling events that occur on the user interface, working with threads, and working with adapters. All of those concepts are pretty different than the concepts that you typically use with Java web dev. But, with Java background, you are still in a good position to learn Android programming.

Thanks!
