How to start with Android app development?

By -

Hello All,

Before deep drive into this topic, i would like to ask few things:
1. Do you have stackoverflow account?
2. Are you member of Android Development community?

Yes i am active member of both, since i following, i saw many threads having “How to start with Android development“, “I am newbie so please suggest best resources by which i can start with Android development” and many more words, and the same stuffs was happening on stackoverflow but as stackoverflow is having active moderators they don’t allow to post same kind of questions again.

Anyway, i had also posted this issue on G+ – Android Development community but the community is getting new members with rocket speed from different timezone and there is no moderator like facility :)

Just before 2-3 days i have again posted a new thread for preparing a good list of handy resources like blogs, library, github, video tutorials or anything which can help to novice android programmer. But many have shouted that this post will be getting down as new posts are being coming up. That’s reason i thought to write this article to document stuffs at one place.

Let me include those resources here, yes if you came across any resources, please feel free to ping me, i will include those in article.
