I have a new crop of webinars going on over the next couple of months:
Android Studio for Eclipse Users is a quick tour of Android Studio, pointing out key differences between how Eclipse worked and how Android Studio works.
A Peek at JobScheduler, which, as the title suggests, reviews the
JobSchedulersystem service that was added to Android 5.0, as an alternative to
AlarmManagerfor periodic work.
What’s New with Notifications covers some of the changes that arose in 2014 related to the use of
Notifications, such as customizing them for Android Wear and Android 5.0’s new behaviors.
Making Sense of Storage, covering the differences between internal, external, and removable storage, plus how
ContentProvidersare replacing direct filesystem access for accessing another app’s files.
(NOTE: those of you who signed up for the “Making Sense of Storage” from mid-December that was canceled due to technical difficulties, Dozeo is working again, and I have added another edition of that webinar for noon US Eastern on January 22nd)
