Android P development

Hi, is the materials for Android development still relevant for developing Android P? because I'm new to App development and I want to make sure that the things I'm learning is up to date, thank you!

Hi Michael. Yes, the concepts taught here will definitely still apply to Android P.

However, although Treehouse offers a couple of courses on Room, you will want to complete your training learning about Android Architecture Components, using LiveData, ViewModel and a repository, as well as MVVM architectural pattern (only MVC/MVP is taught here as far as I know).

Once you're comfortable with all this, you can check out the rest of the Android Jetpack components and start learning Kotlin too. But everything in its own time. Hope that helps :)

I can't tell you specifically but I do know that when you create a new Android Project in AS it will provide you a compatability diagram that will tell you the percentage of phones your app will be compatible with depending on which API you're targeting. :-)
