Wanted to understand why would someone would choose aws sagemaker vs. The normal way.

I'm part of the team that manages these invidiuals and we're assessing sagemaker to continue our efforts.

I may need this information and knowledge there of.

I like the title, and yes these impediments or what i sometimes call it ISSUES, are needed to define and to establish a pattern of solutions that might be put up, but of course this isn't the case most of the times.

I would definitely need to check this out.
Wow, quite nice to be honest. I think I better need to investigate If Go can really be used/replaced some of Java's platform or offerings right now.

For the mobile part, yes Java is the language behind Android, but if there would be a Mobile OS that can utilise Go then that would be a plus for the Go language .

Maybe Go needs some resources for newbies like me to check out and start developing out( I'd probably haven't checked if there are any), maybe you could list out some of the best things out there here.

I always like to read things from scratch , not soft copy but the hard one I'd probably check on this one.

I've been doing Java since 2008, and I just needed a list of reasons why would someone like me try and use Go as another language. I've been working with Android for the time being i have left enterprise java. In this sense I knew Go might be something similar in terms of platform capabilities with Java?

Im not the author, but the book say Android - this is a native platform and doesn't care about integration with others.

yes, that is why I am waiting for the HF Android ( if there are any before) now it happened. I was working with Android since 2008, and did new stuff as time goes by, read some books but they are fairly straightforward. I have fun reading this HF so i am into waiting to have this happened.

I know this would be early but this is not the first and last edition... i know it isn't hehe.

Seems like you own the book ?

I just wanted to know how did they create the book in terms of Android being fragmented (still) and to let readers have a mindset that this isn't a problem anymore, with this Head First Android which i think will have a continuous editions.

I was also wondering if the book shares the same head first series... Being witty yet sticks to your head?

Does this also has Material design?

First off, i am a fan of head first series, started my career reading HF Java, then got Design Patterns, now I'm into Android Applications Development, and been thinking when will this book should happen. Finally it did.

I'm less doing programming for Android now but I'm waiting to read something that will revitalize my skills on Android and be refreshed again to have me back on track with the platform I like - Android.

Can't wait to read this book.

Just wondering what are the difference between normal Android available books out there?

does this cover the latest ?

I've been in an Agile team since last year, although most of the company i've worked for were trying to do this ever since but always moved the wrong way. My concern about Agile is that it only helps a lot whenever we are doing new products to which new things are said to be finished at a certain time unlike existing ones and recurring old bugs, it doesn't comply i think.

Any thoughts?
Hi I'm a Mobile Applications developer and thinking if having a certification on this area using Java is quite necessary or it all depends on the company if they require it?

I mean, I am working fine and even i haven't taken any certifications. But of course at the back of my head It would be great to see a certification like this for you to own.
This is a good starting point as to which i am always looking for something to adapt into, I've been working on Mobile for quite a while and BDD seems reasonable for Mobile teams to adapt.

Business teams are always the counter productive entities technical teams are having (no pun intended) but they are the ones who see the use cases and behavior of how it might happen. So I guess doing analysis to state features that targets your development efforts on underlying business goals are the target of this kind of development. I m new to this so maybe someone can elaborate?

Yes of course,

there are others I assume. As a developer I'm happy to see authors covering this type of approach.

This Book will be beneficial for Java developers who are shifting from Enterprise work/Web or if there are any other java me people around.

Myself was a convert and fell in love with the Android Platform, already did BlackBerry and J2ME before, but Android is something that every Java developer should take into account whenever they need to work on something really interesting and promising.

What's your story? (been doing Java/Android for 7yrs now)

I did have a book regarding this, but if Interaction means different then i wanted to know more about this for I am doing Mobile applications development from the ground up.
