"Exploring Android" Version 0.6 Released

Subscribers now have access to an update to Exploring Android, known as Version 0.6, in PDF, EPUB, and MOBI/Kindle formats, in addition to the online reader. Just log into your Warescription page and download away, or set up an account and subscribe!

14 more tutorials were added. This brings the book back up to where it was back in Version 0.3, just updated for Kotlin, Android Jetpack, etc.

These tutorials:

  • Add dependency injection

  • Convert our UI over to a unidirectional data flow architecture, including integrating ViewModel and LiveData

  • Implement persistence using Room

  • Integrate Kotlin coroutines for doing modifying the Room database contents

  • Add unit and instrumented tests

Along the way, the book was updated for Android Studio 3.4.

I have a few more tutorials that I want to add, so there will be another update to the book in a few weeks. The exact timing will depend on if anything unexpected is announced at Google I|O this week.
