Hi Bill Philips & Chris Stewart,

I am a big enthusiasts of learning Android platform.

In this era of SMAC(Social, Mobile, Analytics and Cloud) and the era of IOT,  what role does Android play?

Which way should we go, Android IOT (AndroidThings), Android Web apps(Responsive/Progressive), Android Native/Hybrid apps?

Which programming language should we concentrate?  
HTML5/Java/JavaScript(NodeJS)/Kotlin/Scala/Go.

What is the future of Android Wearables/ Android TVs?

How good is the future of Android compared to other platforms like iOS/Windows?

I would really like to be a Big Nerd Mobile App Developer.

Hope this book will help me achieve my goal.

Regards,
-Pankaj.

Hi Pankaj,

Before I answer your questions, you should know that I am biased. My career has been built on top of Android, so of course I think it's the future ;)

Android is the most popular mobile operating system. As it stands today, I think it's a safe bet that Android will be important for a while. As far as native/hybrid/web goes, I don't know what the future holds. It's been a dream for years and years that you can write your code once and run it everywhere. In my opinion, that dream isn't fully realized and the best mobile experience comes from native applications. Until that changes I am going to focus on Native apps.

I am also going to focus my time on learning Kotlin. I believe that Kotlin is the future of the Android platform.

I hope that helps. That's a big question. Feel free to post some follow up questions if you'd like for more of my opinion on other parts of it.

Hi Bill Philips & Chris Stewart,

I have one more question. How will the above technologies help in Digitalization?
I have worked on Liferay portal as well.
But talking about digitalization,  how does Liferay DXP help
And how about Liferay Screens for Android ?
Also I  would like to know about BackBase - Omni-Digital Bankin, Plaform
So what is that.

Regards,
Pankaj.

Hi Pankaj,

Sorry, I don't have any experience with Liferay or BackBase. This is the first time that I've heard of either of those technologies.
