What I have learnt

In this 2 course, I have learnt the basic of Android handheld system. All the functionality shown in below screencast. The app shown in the screencast is built by myself from scratch for the peer assessment.

Personal thought

Android programming is quite important in the future IoT world, as most of the IoT could be monitored through Android app. Many valuable data will come from it.

With this course, I have learnt the basic of Android programming and have quite some understanding on Android architecture.
