Who Loves Our Curriculum
Easy to follow
“This book walks the reader through building a project. Over time, the project becomes more complicated, as the topics being taught become more complex. I plan to read this book from start to finish, and build the project to it’s completion. I think you could also read particular chapters if you didn’t want to do the entire project.”
Better than a blog!
“This book is well written, and does a great job of explaining not just “how”, but also “why.” It’s not overly dry, and the exercises and example code all works together.”
Skeptical at first, but couldn’t be happier
“This book was incredible. Easy to follow examples and clear explainations. If you are an Android developer this is a MUST.”
