Explore the Power of Data-Centric and Data-Driven Android Applications with Android Database

Packt is pleased to announce Android Database Programming, a book that strives to weave together the exciting worlds of mobile programming and data management with both conceptual and practical code-filled examples.

Android is a mobile operating system based upon a modified version of the Linux kernel. The Android Open Source Project (AOSP) is tasked with the maintenance and further development of Android. The Android operating system software stack consists of Java applications running on a Java based object oriented application framework on top of Java core libraries running on a Dalvik virtual machine featuring JIT compilation.

Android Database Programming is a book meant to prepare its readers for this new world we live in. It's a book that not only strives to teach its readers all the different data storage methods available, but which also strives to illuminate the strengths and weaknesses of each method – placing a greater emphasis on conceptual thinking.

By the end of this book, readers will be able to craft an efficient, well-designed, and well thought out data-centric application

This book is ideal for readers with a wide range of technical backgrounds, ranging from those with a limited Android programming background but who may be well-versed in database designs, to those who are experienced in Android programming but who may need to brush up on database schemas and database queries. The book is out now and available from Packt in print and popular eBook formats. To read more, please visit the Packt website.
