As any new developer starting out in Android, the biggest challenge is learning all that the Android framework has to offer. Online references are usually a disaster when perusing through a Google search result. Sometimes, the examples never give you what you want or they leave out key parts of code that you need in order to understand what is being talked about. Better yet, some examples are so old and written just horribly that people don’t realize the good from the bad.
Considering I have banged my head a few times on the keyboard and let out an occasional profanity only to be followed by moments of happiness and joy at solving a problem (a few hours later), I’d like to bring some trials and tribulations to some of you who hopefully can find some help and answers in this blog post that I have started. Feedback and questions gladly accepted.
